Aamir Khan’s brother Faisal Khan opened Aamir’s apology for his “intolerant” remark during Laal Singh Chaddha, calling him “opportunistic”. Before the release of the highly anticipated film, Aamir expressed his views on the boycott trend against his film, saying: “I feel sad that some people who say this believe in their hearts that I am someone who doesn’t love India. Believe in their hearts them, but it’s not true.”
Recently, Faizal responded to Aamir’s apology, stating that although his brother did the right thing, he could have apologized much sooner. Speaking to the UK Time News, Faizal said: “Yes, it was right to apologize. Nobody knows everything in life. There’s no harm in apologizing and correcting yourself. You’ll be a better person after that. He should have apologized immediately after that thing came out, not when his movie was released. That seems opportunistic. The Mela actor went on to add: “But if someone doesn’t realize they may have hurt someone, then you know I none of that. Because you don’t know when someone comes to realization.”

In the same conversation, Faizal Khan said he liked Laal Singh Chaddha in parts, but it fell below Aamir’s standard. “I thought Aamir should have chosen a better script, especially since he was going to come out with a movie after 4 years. You expect Aamir and other good actors to do a good job. They would blow your mind. But it did. didn’t happen to Laal Singh Chaddha, unfortunately. It wasn’t a ‘wow’ movie.”
Laal Singh Chaddha of Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan was released in theaters on August 11 with mixed reactions. The film was released with Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan, and they were both miserable at the box office.
