Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha is one of those Bollywood movies that were hit hard by the 2 year long pandemic. Since the release date was recently pushed back to August 11 to avoid a clash with KGF Chapter 2 and Beast, it now stands as a competition for Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan, which is set to be released on the same day. A recent report suggests a clash between the two films is inevitable unless Aamir’s film is pushed to another date again.

For the inexperienced, Laal Singh Chaddha is an upcoming drama film inspired by Tom Hanks’ Hollywood classic Forrest Gump. The film stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and South Indian actor Naga Chaitanya in lead roles and is directed by Advait Chandan. Aamir is the lead actor and one of the producers of this movie which was initially announced in the year 2019.

A few weeks ago, the makers of Laal Singh Chaddha had announced via social media that they had brought forward the release date as parts of the film had yet to be completed. According to a report from Bollywood Life, as the film now takes on Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan, the makers have made an effort to see what can be done about the box office clash.

A source close to development told them that the makers of Laal Singh Chaddha have sent feelers to Akshay Kumar, but the latter is highly unlikely to move their release date. Since the film is called Raksha Bandhan, they want the film to hit theaters on August 11, as the auspicious festival itself falls on that day this year.

The same source also suggests that Akshay Kumar is pretty confident in its mass appeal, which is why he could assume the same release date even if it clashes with Laal Singh Chaddha.
