Finally revealing why he had to quit Laal Singh Chaddha, Vijay said, “Then COVID happened. It ransacked all our plans. After the lockdown, I had five Telugu projects in various stages of production to complete. I just couldn’t accommodate Lal Singh Chadha in my schedule.”

Despite the lost opportunity to work with Aamir, Vijay is hopeful that someday they might collaborate for a film. “When I went to Mumbai, Aamir sir invited me to his house. He was the perfect host, not just once but twice. I can never forget his kindness and his knowledge in cinema. It would be an honour and a pleasure to work with him sometime in the near future, ” Vijay told the portal. Even we would love to watch these two powerhouse performers share screen space someday. Don’t you guys agree?
