That Aamir Khan is reeling from the poor response to his film Laal Singh Chaddha both critically and commercially is not a hidden fact. Reportedly, the majority of the negative reviews surrounding the movie aimed at Aamir’s performance not being effective enough as compared to Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump . Now an interview of the actor has been going viral wherein he could be revealing how he didn’t listen to the screenwriter of the movie Atul Kulkarni who had asked him to tone down his performance in the film.
The video interview has Aamir Khan saying how Atul Kulkarni wanted his performance in the movie to be a little ‘flat’ and ‘subtle’ but the actor along with Laal Singh Chaddha director Advait Chandan disagreed with the same. Aamir added how he decided to incorporate his own mannerisms in the movie. Take a look at the same.
However, it seems that the overconfidence of ‘Mr. Perfectionist’ has clearly backfired since the majority of the negative critics and audience reactions claimed that the actor went a little over-the-top with his performance. Some fans reportedly also alleged that Aamir Khan did a little overacting when it came to his facial expressions. Some audiences started comparing his performance to be repetitive to that of his act in PK and Dhoom 3 right after the trailer of the movie had been released.

Well, we wonder whether the superstar should have listened to Laal Singh Chaddha writer Atul Kulkarni now and regrets not doing so. The fans in the comments section of the video also expressed the same. A netizen stated, “Should have listened to Atul Kulkarni. Man is a tremendous actor himself and played a fantastic range of characters over his career.” A user also criticized Aamir’s performance saying, “There was no need to act like a goof with eyes wide open, and moving your head around like a wobble head. Not everyone with intellectual disability act like they are from a different planet.” The movie is currently faring very poorly at the box office and has only amassed Rs 45 crore to Rs 46 crore in five days of its release.
