'Lal Singh Chaddha' to feature 1984 riots, not Babri Masjid?

Days after it was reported that Aamir Khan's Lal Singh Chaddha will feature the highly-controversial Babri Masjid demolition, it's now said that it would be based on 1984 anti-Sikh riots instead.

According to reports, the riots will play an important part in the plot.

The report also said that Aamir was very particular about his next since Thugs of Hindostan tanked at box office.

The 1984 anti-Sikh riots killed 4,000 Sikhs across India

A report published in Pinkvilla confirmed the development, saying the movie would revolve around the horrifying riots, which killed 4,000 Sikhs across India, as per official estimates. The anti-Sikh riots erupted after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards.
