Aamir Khan on Laal Singh Chaddha’s failure

Aamir said, “It’s a film close to my heart. Advait, Kareena and the whole cast and crew worked hard and it didn’t do well. Two things happened, after a long time my film didn’t work, so family and friends would come home to ask me, ‘If I’m okay?’ I realised that I’m getting a lot of love after a flop. That was the funny side of it. The real side is, failure teaches you what really has gone wrong. It gives you an opportunity to understand what was your mistake in terms of communicating that story.”

He added, “I gave it a lot of thought, it was a big learning for me. I remember telling Kiran once, ‘I made so many mistakes in this film on so many levels. Thank God I made these mistakes in just one film. Emotionally, I’m hurt that the film has not worked, I’ve taken time to absorb the grief.”

Aamir on social messages through films

He also spoke about social messages in films. Aamir said that people come to theatres for “a majedar (interesting) story”. He added that one can say (social message) through the film, and even “if you don’t say anything, that’s also ok”.
