In an interview to Hindustan Times, Aamir revealed he does not have any problems with remakes despite there being criticism about Bollywood losing its originality. "I believe that whenever a script excites me, I want to do it. I have done remakes in the past too. It Happened One Night was remade into Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi, and Tamil film Ghajini was remade as Ghajini in Hindi. However, most of my films are original scripts. As a creative person, I feel it gives you an opportunity to reinterpret the same material,” he said.
Laal Singh Chaddha is slated to release on Christmas 2020.
