Aamir Khan's last film, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, witnessed a dismal run at the box office and could not even manage to cross ₹50 crore in its opening weekend. Directed by Advait Chandan, the film was a Hindi remake of the 1994 Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’, and also featured Kareena Kapoor.
Now Anupam Kher, in a new interview, talked about the 'boycott Bollywood' trend, and ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ failure. He said that 'no power would have stopped' ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ from working if it were a great film. "Laal Singh Chadda was not a great film. If it was a great film then no power would've stopped it. Aamir Khan's 'PK' worked really well. The point is that you need to accept the truth," the actor told news agency ANI.
He added, "I am not for boycott trends, not at all but you can't stop somebody from doing what they want to do. But if your product is good, it will find its audience. In fact, they will go with a vengeance. And the only way to kill this trend is to do brilliant work."
Talking about the 'boycott Bollywood' trend, Anupam mentioned that if a film is good, then it will work, but if a film is bad, then it will not.
‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ was released on August 11, 2022, and despite releasing on the long holiday weekend around Raksha Bandhan and Independence Day, it failed to get audiences to the theaters. The film was later released on Netflix.
Anupam will be next seen in Kangana Ranaut's directorial ‘Emergency’ apart from Anurag Basu's ‘Metro In Dino’, and the upcoming thriller film ‘IB71’.
