On the topic of releasing the film on OTT platforms, Aamir told media sources that he was in no rush to release the film for streaming, saying “I think the curiosity of going to theatres has reduced because films come on OTT right after they come in theatres, they come on OTT very fast. So I have always tried to keep a 6-month gap for my films. I don't know what the industry follows, but I like to keep a 6-month gap. So that's what I tried to do for all my films and up till now, we have managed that (sic).”

Laal Singh Chaddha will be released in theatres on August 11. It also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya along with Aamir.
