After the launch of Laal Singh Chaddha’s trailer in May, fans expressed their disappointment on social media platforms. Several people spoke of Aamir giving similar bulging-eyed expressions seen in his films such as PK, 3 Idiots, and Dhoom 3. One Reddit user shared photos of Aamir with his eyes wide open, writing, “There’s something similar about all these roles, although they are fundamentally different characters. I don’t know if it’s Aamir who is being caricatured or something… but it gets repetitive and hard to watch.”
Speaking to the media, as quoted by Pinkvilla, Aamir said: “I think you should all watch the film and then decide. I’ll tell you why because there is one similarity in Laal and PK and that is innocence. Laal is harmless and PK too. This is a very strong trait they both possess. So in the trailer you may not see the difference that you will see in the whole performance. Toh jab aap Laal ka poora performance dekhenge toh I hope ki dono characters aapko bohot innocent Lagein but woh aapko alag kirdar Lagega. Woh aapko PK nahi Lagega, mere hisab se.(When you go to watch the movie I hope you see the same innocence in PK and Laal but you realize it’s two different characters I think you won’t feel it’s PK).”
In PK (2014), Aamir plays an alien who comes to Earth on a research mission. The film also stars Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Sanjay Dutt, Boman Irani and Saurabh Shukla. A comedy drama film, PK is directed by Rajkumar Hirani and written by Rajkumar and Abhijat Joshi.
Aided by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha is slated for release on August 11. The film is an official Hindi adaptation of the 1994 Academy Award-winning film Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks. Besides Aamir, Kareena Kapoor, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya are also part of Laal Singh Chaddha.
