I can already see him trying to act perfect.. But we don't want to see 'perfect'

FLOP. Forrest Gump is the quintessential American movie. In order to properly adapt it, you would have to have "Lal Singh Chaddha" go thru major Indian historical events just like Forrest does in the movie, and India is not so cool about that s**t. Are the audience going to be ok with Lal Singh Chaddha meeting Indira Gandhi right before her assassination or accidentally exposing the Bofors scandal, cause that is literally Forrest Gump india style?
