amine group present in aniline undergoes lewis acid base reaction with catalyst aluminium there is no more aluminium chloride left for reaction to take place . however if aluminium chloride is taken in excess , some meta isomer is produced.

This is because in presence of AlCl3, reaction occurs between NH2 group of aniline & AlCl3.

Because of NH2 has Lewis Base character then aniline reacts with Lewis acid AlCl3 and inhibit the synthesis of electrophile Which is necessary to attack on benzene ring
