According to a latest report in Mid-day, Laal Singh Chaddha might make it to the screens in April 2021. "The unit was to head to Chandigarh for another round of filming. The shoot was moving like clockwork, and Aamir was hoping to release the first teaser around Diwali. However, the lockdown has put the brakes on his plans. Even if the shoots resume by August or September, it is unlikely that the movie will hit screens by December. It may target April 2021 for release," a close source to the development revealed to the portal. With this, the report also confirms that the makers are not planning for a digital release of the film, but instead are keen for a theatrical release only.
“Besides presenting Aamir as a 20-something who grows older as the narrative progresses, the film will also depict events like the Babri Masjid demolition and the Kargil war. It won't be easy to complete such intricate VFX work in a short time,” the source added.
