‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is the Bollywood rendition of Tom Hank’s popular film ‘Forrest Gump’. It will star Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor in lead roles showcasing India’s revolutionary growth in the last few decades.
On the occasion of his 54th birthday, Aamir Khan announced his next film ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’, the official remake of Hollywood’s ‘Forrest Gump’.
Aamir will be stepping into the shoes of Tom Hanks to showcase iconic historic events like the controversial 1992 Babar Dadri Masjid demolition and rise of Modi government along with other current political developments that have shaped the nation’s future.
According to industry sources, ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is not only a film, but it is also a reference for the world to see what all has happened in India over the last 40 years or so.
Pretty much like the Paramount Film ‘Forrest Gump’, Aamir will be seen meeting important political and historical personalities in VFX laden visuals.
Director Aadvit Chandan and superstar Aamir Khan duly understand the political standpoint of the film but they are hopeful that the film wouldn’t rake in too much controversy.
The reporters asked him about his decision to do a remake of the Hollywood classic; he said “I have always loved Forrest Gump as a script. It is a wonderful story about this character. It is a life-affirming story. It is a feel-good film. It is a film for the whole family.”
The film will be produced by Viacom 18 and Aamir Khan Productions, directed by ‘Secret Superstar’ director, Advait Chandan and will star Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in lead roles.
The makers have purchased the film right from Paramount pictures as ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is the remake of 1994 super-hit ‘Forrest Gump’ starring Tom Hanks. The shooting will begin in October and it will likely hit the silver screens in December 2020.
