Laal Singh Chaddha: Aamir Khan gets knee injury while shooting running sequence

New Delhi|: Aamir Khan’s highly anticipated film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is gearing up for its release and the audience is very enthusiastic about the film hitting cinemas.

Aamir, who plays the titular role will be seen donning multiple hats in his professional life throughout the different phases, one being where he runs across the country for a long time.

“While the idea of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ running for a long time sounds exciting to the audience, Aamir who played the lead, pushed his limitations while shooting for this sequence. When Aamir started shooting the long-running sequence, his knee was injured, and was undergoing physiotherapy. Yet, despite all the odds he took the call. The actor was constantly on painkillers to avoid the pain that was caused while running,” the makers said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The reason why Aamir chose to run despite the injury was- the delay in shooting due to the pandemic. The shoot for ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ was continuously getting postponed and Aamir Khan didn’t want to wait on the shoot of this long sequence. The shoot did turn out to be very grilling and over-taxing but the star didn’t give up and gave his best shots,” it further added.

The ‘Running Sequence’ from the film is one of the most talked-about scenes. In this sequence Laal Singh Chaddha runs for years, passing through every picturesque location in India, and achieving another milestone in his life.

‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Kiran Rao, and Viacom18 Studios, also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, and Chaitanya Akkineni.

It is an official remake of ‘Forrest Gump’. The film will be released on August 11.
