Aamir Khan announced his next film on the occasion of his 54th birthday. He announced that his next film will be an official adaptation of Tom Hanks starrer, Forrest Gump and he will be seen as Laal Singh Chaddha. At the media meet at his house, Aamir Khan announced his next project and mentioned that he will be losing weight to fit into the shoes of the character in the film. As the last project, Thugs of Hindostan didn’t work at the box office, Aamir wants to work even harder on this project. 

Aamir mentioned to the media that he will be giving himself 6 months of prep time before actually going ahead with the shooting of Laal Singh Chaddha. Aamir also announced that the shooting of the film will start in October and that he is excited to bring something good for the audiences. Aamir went ahead and mentioned that for the past 8 years, he had been trying to get the rights to Forrest Gump and when he finally received it, he decided to go ahead with it. Laal Singh Chadha is being written by actor Atul Kulkarni. Aamir had shared the idea with him during the Rang De Basanti shoot. 

Aamir revealed the process of selecting the film. He mentioned, "During the shoot, he had shared that the Forrest Gump is one of his favourite movies. Atul approached me with adaptation script later on but I did not take him seriously. I read the script after 2 and a half years and loved it. After that, I went behind taking the right of the movie.

Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha will be directed by Secret Superstar director Advait Chandan. 


Sorry to break it to you Aamir, but this remake already exists, it's called My Name is Khan. They sold it as a religious persecution hot topic movie, but really it's Forrest Gump, an autistic man's love story takes him through major American historical events of the decade, but through the average Indian-American eyes, in MNIK we see 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, meeting the president... all stuff Forrest would do if the movie was set in the 2000's and not the 60-70's.

he already tried to copy johnny depp/jack sparrow and failed. another straight rip off of a hollywood classic seems to be the downfall of aamir to me

Get rid of the nepotism in Bollywood. Then maybe they will get ideas to do an original story for once.

Congrats on your next commercial and artistic failure, Aamir.

Somehow I am not surprised and that's disappointing. This is like the type of role Aamir falls back on.

Why is it always a Punjabi character when a story about a half-wit naive person is being written

Amir always copies Tom Hanks. And our public goes ga ga over him. He is soooo overrated.

Noooooooooo....pls leave that classic alone! I always felt Aamir overacts....but among the superstars he is best...

nooo do not touch this classic!

I’ve long thought that there’s a resemblance between Tom Hanks and Aamir Khan, appearance and even acting wise.
