Amid boycott calls in India, The Academy hails Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha

Aamir Khan’s latest release Laal Singh Chaddha has started poorly at the box office. The opening day collection of the film was less than Karthik Aryan’s film Bhool Bhulaiya 2. Apart from the crackling of the ticket window, there is a constant controversy regarding the film. Even after the release, the demand for boycott is not stopping. Laal Singh Chaddha, who is trapped in so many tornadoes in the country, has got support from abroad. The film has been encouraged by the most prestigious Academy Awards and has also shared the video of the film.

Similar scenes of Forrest Gump and Lal Singh Chaddha are shown in the video.

Aamir Khan in the role made famous by Tom Hanks.”

In the caption, the Academy Awards praised Forrest Gump and also told about the awards it won. Forrest Gump was nominated in a total of 13 categories in the year 1994. Giving information about the awards won in the video, it is written, ‘1994 Forrest Gump was nominated for 13 Oscar Awards, including Best Actor (Tom Hanks), Direction (Robert Zemeckis), Film Editing (Arthur Schmidt), Best Picture (Wendy Feinerman, Steve Tisch and Steve Starkey, Producers) and Adapted Screenplay (Eric Roth) won 6 awards.
