Laal Singh Chaddha is the official Hindi adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 film Forrest Gump, which had Tom Hanks in the lead role.

Yet, Aamir and his siblings (Faisal Khan, Farhat Khan and Nikhat Khan) would be always late to pay their fees. The actor said that the principal would give them one or two warnings, and later, the principal would announce their names in the assembly, in front of the entire school," reported Hindustan Times.
