Apart from Aamir and Kareena, Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Mona Singh and Vijay Sethupathi in pivotal roles. The film has completed shooting in various locations like Delhi, Rajasthan, Chandigarh, Amritsar and Kolkata. The crew and cast were to shoot in Ladakh next but it got cancelled due to India - China clash in the Galwan valley. The team has now jetted off to Turkey for the next schedule.
