Akshay Kumar shifts Bachchan Pandey release date for Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chadha
While Laal Singh Chadha is the official Hindi remake of Forrest Gump, Bachchan Pandey is said to be a remake of Ajith’s Veeram
Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chadha and Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey were headed for a clash on December 25. On Monday, Aamir shared that Laal Singh Chadha will have a solo release this Christmas, as Akshay and producer Sajid Nadiadwala have agreed to release their film on a different date.
Sometimes all it takes is one conversation. Thank you to my friends @akshaykumar & Sajid Nadiadwala for their warm gesture of moving the release date of their film Bachchan Pandey at my request. I wish them the very best for their film. Looking forward to it.
