The superstar Aamir khan has announced that his next will be the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump. Titled Lal Singh Chaddha, the film will trace the journey of a dim witted sardaar who witnesses some of the most monumental events in the history of India.
The film will also mark a reunion for Aamir and his 3 Idiots co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan. Source told Pinkvilla, “Kareena is the perfect choice for the film. They have locked both the actors’ dates from October this year. They plan to shoot three schedules, back to back and Aamir will have different looks for each era. The film begins in the 70s and ends in present time. From the Emergency and Kargil War to Pulwama and Uri and the changing government, the film will showcase some of the biggest highlights in the last five decades of the nation’s socio-political history.”
For the film, the makers – director Advait Chandan and Aamir have also researched several looks. “There will be four to five different looks for each part of the time frame. Both the characters age with time and Aamir and Advait has been looking at the clothes, the culture and the looks that were prevalent for every era and redesigning it for a sardaar. They are going to keep a few days off right now to complete the look test before they roll out with the first schedule.”
