Around half of the shooting schedule is left and there’s no chance that the film can meet its expected release deadline in December this year. This has also impacted Aamir’s other projects which were lined-up to begin after the release of Laal Singh Chadha. One of them was the Hindi remake of south hit Vikram Vedha that was going to feature Saif Ali Khan along with Aamir.
