Ahead of the release of Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha, the actor-filmmaker attended a special event in Hyderabad where he opened up about the averted clash at the box-office with KGF 2.

Aamir said, "I remember when KGF 2 was about to release, there was a lot of excitement among the Hindi audience, amongst my own friends. Laal Singh Chaddha was supposed to release on that day. But fortunately for us, Red Chillies was taking a little time on the VFX so we got saved! Otherwise, we would have come with KGF 2."

Laal Singh Chaddha, the Hindi adaptation of the 1994 Tom Hanks-starrer Forrest Gump, was earlier heading for an April 14 release alongside KGF: Chapter 2. Now, the Advait Chandan directorial will hit screens on August 11. 

At the event, Aamir was joined by Chiranjeevi, who is presenting the Telugu version of Laal Singh Chaddha and Naga Chaitanya, who plays a pivotal role in the film. 

Aamir added that the pan-Indian success of South film was a heartening trend. "KGF 2 is a Kannada film, there is Pushpa, Baahubali, RRR (all Telugu)... All these films have come from the south of India and have won the hearts of audiences across the country. It is wonderful to see that cinema coming out of one state of India can successfully give joy and entertainment to the whole country. That's really a celebration for us when that happens," he added.

Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead, and it will clash at the box-office with Akshay Kumar-Aanand L Rai's Raksha Bandhan.
