Aamir Khan, Bollywood actor has talked about feeling "emotionally hurt" by the failure of his last film, Laal Singh Chaddha, released on August 

During his appearance at the ABP Ideas of India Summit 3.0 on Friday, the 58-year-old actor mentioned that he found it funny that he received a lot of love after the film, Laal Singh Chadda didn't do well.

He said, “It’s a film close to my heart, Advait, Kareena and the whole cast and crew worked hard and it didn’t do well. Two things happened, after a long time my film didn’t work, so family and friends would come home to ask me, If I’m okay.”

“I realised that I’m getting a lot of love after a flop. That was the funny side of it. The real side is, failure teaches you what really has gone wrong,” Aamir added.

The PK actor continued, “It gives you an opportunity to understand what was your mistake in terms of communicating that story."

He added, "I gave it a lot of thought, it was a big learning for me. I remember telling Kiran once, ‘I made so many mistakes in this film on so many levels. Thank God I made these mistakes in just one film. Emotionally, I’m hurt that the film has not worked, I’ve taken time to absorb the grief.”

Aamir also discussed the importance of interesting stories in the films, saying that even if a movie carries a social message or not, it's okay as long as it's entertaining.
