After Trailer Backlash Lal Singh Chaddha To Go Back To Shooting?
It is reliably learnt that the severe backlash against the long-waited trailer of Laal Singh Chaddha has alerted Aamir Khan to the pitfalls of doing a remake of an inviolable classic, and that too one which was released 22 years ago. The response has been severely critical with some sections of Indian netizens even issuing apologies to Tom Hanks for the remake.
According to well-informed sources Aamir and the co-producer Viacom 18 are not only planning to shoot and release a new trailer where the focus would not be on projecting Laal Singh Chaddha as an adaptation of a classic, the team is also looking at re-shooting portions of the film.
With big Hindi films facing the flop fate, Aamir definitely has reason to be worried. Would the Indian audience be interested in a remake of a Hollywood classic that came in 1994? Indian audience were not much interested in the Top Gun sequel which came 36 years after the original Top Gun. On the other hand Bhool Bhulaiya 2 which came 14 years after Part 1, is doing roaring business.
