Lal Singh Chaddha begins

The film has finally mounted the floorboards and will be put up for release on Christmas 2020.

Aamir Khan’s new film Lal Singh Chaddha will be mounting the floors today. The film, which is an official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks-starrer Forrest Gump, is an ambitious project for Khan, who has been working on the idea for about a year.

Indications of Khan and Hanks’ association came in much earlier when they exchanged pleasantries on social media, but it was made official on Khan’s 53rd birthday this year. It can be recalled that in the ’90s, even Kundan Shah wanted to do an unofficial remake of the film with Anil Kapoor, and then with Shah Rukh Khan.

“Aamir’s mother Zeenat Hussain is expected to give the clap for the film, which is being directed by Secret Superstar director Advait Chandan. It will also star Kareena Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi, and Yogi Babu, among a host of others. The film, which also speaks about the Golden Temple massacre and the assassination of Indira Gandhi, is incidentally — or perhaps intentionally — going on the floors on the day the former Indian Prime Minister was killed. Aamir plays a Sikh character in the film, and Kareena plays his love interest,” says a source.

Written by Atul Kulkarni, Lal Singh Chaddha will arrive on Christmas 2020.
