In the lead up to his new film 'Laal Singh Chaddha', Bollywood star Aamir Khan visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar to seek blessings and also to calm nerves ahead of its release this week.

His co-star Mona Singh also paid a visit to the sacred shrine along with him. Several images went viral with Aamir and Mona surrounded by other devotees at the holy shrine in Punjab.

Aamir essays the role of a Sikh character in the movie which is the remake of the 1994 superhit Hollywood movie 'Forrest Gump' and Kareena Kapoor Khan is also a part of the film.

"We need your blessings guys. I usually get stressed before the release of my film, and this time also I am not able to sleep for the past one month, but I visited Darbar Sahib Golden Temple, post that I felt relieved, and now I believe whatever happens it will be fine as it is. So thank you so much," he told reporters at a premiere for the film.

Apart from Aamir, actors Kareena Kapoor Khan, Naga Chaitanya and the director and writer of the film Advait Chandan and Atul Kulkarni were also present at the premiere.

The 'Thugs of Hindostan' actor also said: "We are very happy that our film is finally releasing. I would like to say that we created this film with all our hearts, and I think this film will touch your hearts, the same way it touched ours. I am proud to say that Advait has directed the film so well, in the same way as we imagined.

“I am proud that it's a film about love, I am proud that this film shows our beautiful Indian culture. The film is getting a very big release, so I feel proud that through this film we can showcase the beauty of India and Indian culture and Indian civilisation. On the eve of the release of the film we are proud that we made this film and we hope the audience will like this film."

Kareena, on the other hand, stated: "After 'Talaash' and '3 Idiots' I got a chance to work with Aamir in such a special film. Atul Ji wrote such a beautiful story. When I first heard the narration of the film I wasn't able to hold my tears. I have done many films, but this is the first time I think I cried listening to a narration of the film.

“I have done this film just because of its storyline and my character. I think this is the perfect treat for all the fans. We are already getting very good reviews for the film internationally and our fingers are crossed, and I am quite sure everyone will love the film."

South Indian star Naga Chaitanya is all set to mark his big Bollywood debut with 'Laal Singh Chaddha', where he portrays the role of an army officer.

Talking to the media, he added: "It's quite a nervous moment for me. This has been a really special film in my career, very few films and very few opportunities come and go like this, but this has been really special and it's my first Hindi film, so I would like to thank the entire team.

“We have been having a few screenings in the last few days and the kind of response we have been getting from the audience is very overwhelming. So nice to see smiles on everyone's faces. The kind of patience and determination the entire team is having for the past three-four years towards it was amazing. I am so happy for them that it is finally out. So hoping for the best."

The filmmakers have announced that the film will be available on streaming platforms after six months of its release. Aamir recently expressed how he just got saved from having the same release date with that of KGF 2: “'Laal Singh Chaddha' was supposed to release on that day. But fortunately for us, Red Chillies was taking a little time on the VFX so we got saved! Otherwise, we would have come with KGF 2".

The August 11 release date of 'Laal Singh Chadha', however, clashes with Akshay Kumar's 'Raksha Bandhan'.
