ABOUT LAAL SINGH CHADDHA
Writer Atul Kulkarni has called Laal Singh Chaddha a very 'desi' film. He said that apart from the soul of the film, everything else has been adapted, keeping the Indian sensibilities in mind. When asked if he is nervous about the box office numbers, Atul said that he is not. "I've been doing films for last 22 years now. And one has learned not to take the pressure. You have also learned to watch it from a distance as to what happens to a film. So, I've learned that during last few years that I've been working, so I don't get nervous with releases," he said.
Along with Laal Singh Chaddha, Akshay Kumar's starrer Raksha Bandhan is also releasing in theatres. Akshay's film is less than 2 hours this time.
Meanwhile, Laal Singh Chaddha is directed by Advait Chandan.
