Speaking (in Hindi) to the press in the said video, Khan is heard saying, “We tried our best. We didn’t leave any stone unturned, but somewhere we went wrong. There are some people who liked the film, and we would like to thank them, we are happy that some people liked it. But they are in a small minority. Majority of the people didn’t like our film and we realize this. So, definitely we went wrong somewhere and I take the full responsibility for it.”

EastMojo’s team found out that the video going viral now is in fact an old one, and has no connection with the film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’.
