Aamir Khan has answered questions about when he may potentially return to acting.
Aamir Khan’s last film Laal Singh Chaddha was a box office disaster. The official Hindi remake of Hollywood classic Forrest Gump, the film opened to mixed reviews and poor box office collections, and earned way less than expectations. Post the film’s release, Aamir had said that he would take a break from acting. Now, at a recent event, the actor has opened up about the timeline of his return.
Aamir Khan on Tuesday said he is enjoying spending time with his family right now and will decide to do a film when he is "emotionally ready". In November 2022, three months after Laal Singh Chaddha’s release, Aamir said he was taking some time off, maybe "a year and a half", to prioritise family over career.
At the trailer launch event of Punjabi film Carry On Jatta 3, Aamir was asked why he didn't announce a new film after Laal Singh Chaddha. He was last seen in a cameo in the Kajol-starrer Salaam Venky. In his response, the actor said he is "feeling good" about spending time with family at the moment. “Today, we should ideally only talk about Carry On Jatta, but since you all must be curious, let me quickly give you an answer. I haven't decided to do any film as of now. I want to spend time with my family right now. I'm feeling good about it because that's what I want to do right now. I'll do a film when I'm emotionally ready, for sure,” Aamir told reporters.
Carry On Jatta 3 stars Gippy Grewal, Sonam Bajwa, Kavita Kaushik, and Gurpreet Ghuggi. Gippy expressed gratitude towards Aamir for extending his support for the upcoming film. “Thank you so much, paaji (Aamir). Thank you everyone for coming here. It's the first Punjabi film that's releasing on this level. We've made an effort to add (English) subtitles, so that you all can understand it,” the Punjabi star added.
