‘It certainly affected…’, Kiran Rao opens up about Aamir Khan’s reaction after Laal Singh Chaddha debacle – India TV
Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer film Lal Singh Chaddha flopped terribly at the box office in 2022. Its cast, team, and everyone had high expectations from this film, but the movie failed to leave a mark at the box office. Talking about the collection of the film, it would have barely earned Rs 60 crores. Now after years, Aamir Khan’s ex-wife Kiran Rao has broken her silence on this and has told how it affected the actor. The film’s co-producer talked about Laal Singh Chaddha’s weak performance at the box office.

Recently, in an interview given to Zoom, Kiran Rao talked about the performance of Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Lal Singh Chaddha. ‘It’s really disappointing when you put in all the efforts and it doesn’t work, which is what happened with Laal Singh Chaddha. It certainly affected Aamir deeply’, said Kiran while adding that not only Aamir but the entire team was depressed with Laal Singh Chaddha’s debacle at the world box office.
Laal Singh Chaddha was a dream project
Talking about the film, Kiran said that it was a ‘dream project’ for her, Aamir had tried to acquire the rights of the script for more than a decade before it came to fruition. Despite some positive responses on social media, Kiran admitted that the film failed to connect with the audience and she had to accept the fact.
