Chaitanya also spoke about Aamir’s ‘content-first approach’ and praised his passion for movies. “At first, he is an actor, but he is in-tuned with craft as much as he is with his acting, and that’s amazing. He is always chasing content. He always talks about content first. He doesn’t talk about (box office) numbers or packaging. All that comes in the end, but as they’re filming, and till they finish filming, he is only chasing the content, and he’s been true to that,” he shared.
Aamir Khan recently launched the trailer of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ during the IPL 2022 Finals. The film is a Hindi remake of the cult Hollywood classic Forrest Gump starring Tom Hanks in the lead.
