Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha released in theatres on August 11. Directed by Advait Chandan, the film, which is an adaptation of the Hollywood classic Forrest Gump, also stars Kareena Kapoor and Naga Chaitanya. The trailer of the movie received mixed reactions, with people criticising Aamir’s Punjabi accent as well as the similarity to his expressions in PK, where he played an alien. Not just this, but the film also saw calls for a boycott on Twitter. During the promotions of the film, Aamir defended his character and requested the audience to watch the film first before arriving at any conclusion.

The actor said, “Woh trailer mein aadha dikhta hai na? The trailer is of 2 minutes, and our film is 2.30 hours long. So it would be better if you can judge these aspects after watching the film.” He added, “Agar mein theth Punjabi bolunga toh baki logon ko nahi samaj aayega…aapko samaj aa jayega. Aap film dekh lijiye… mujhe umeed hai ki aap disappointed nahi honge (If I spoke perfect Punjabi, others might not understand, even if you do. You watch the film. I’m sure you would not be disappointed).”
As Bollywood has had a rough patch for the past few months barring a few films, Aamir Khan had expressed his worry on Koffee With Karan, “We are excited that we have made a good film, lekin agar film logon ko pasand nahin aayi, bahut dil toot jaayega (If people don’t like it, we will be heartbroken).”
Laal Singh Chaddha clashed with Akshay Kumar's Raksha Bandhan on August 11. However, Aamir's film seems to have made a better start, going by the advance bookings. Big cinema chains such as PVR, INOX and Cinepolis have together sold over 95k tickets which shows that the film has done a business of over Rs 11.5 crore. On the other hand, Raksha Bandhan is trailing behind and has sold approximately 50k tickets until now collecting around Rs 4.5 cr before its release on Thursday.
