Actor Aamir Khan recently announced his next big project, titled Lal Singh Chaddha. Now, the news has it that he has locked Diwali 2020 as its release date. The actor hasn’t talked about the film’s release date yet but the grapevine is already abuzz with the strong speculations of him deciding on to make Lal Singh Chaddha a big Diwali release next year. An entertainment portal quoted the source close to the development saying that Aamir has already begun the work on the film and he is keen to wrap up the film by mid-2020.
Bollywood Hungama quoted a source saying, “The preps for it has started and Aamir sir is yet to finish his research. We all know that Aamir sir takes only one film at a time and Lal Singh Chaddha is currently his priority. He will be prepping for the next six months after which the film will go on floors in the last quarter of 2019. Hence, keeping the schedules in mind, the team decided that Diwali 2020 would be best for the release.”
Aamir’s last film, Thugs Of Hindostan was also released during the time of Diwali. However, it bombed at the Box Office and vanished without a trace after collecting an amount of Rs 145 crore (approx) in its lifetime run. Now, Aamir has once again planned to take over the screens during Diwali next year.
The actor announced the film in an interaction with the media on his birthday, March 14. He said, “My next film is finalised. It is called ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’. It is being made by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions together. It will be directed by Advait Chandan. It is an adaptation of Hollywood film Forrest Gump. We have bought the rights from Paramount… I am playing the lead role of Lal Singh.”
So, Diwali 2020 it is!
