On his 54th birthday, Aamir Khan announced his next film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ which is an official adaptation of the Oscar-winning movie ‘Forrest Gump’. The Mr.Perfectionist will be playing the lead character of Laal Singh Chaddha in the film. For this, there will be six months of preparations and he will lose 20 kgs for the role. Now, a report in Bollywood Hungama says that the ‘Dangal’ actor has locked a release date for the movie. Yes, the film will release in Diwali next year.
The web portal quoted a source saying that the preparation for it has started and Aamir is yet to finish his research. “We all know that Aamir sir takes only one film at a time and ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is currently his priority. He will be prepping for the next six months after which the film will go on floors in the last quarter of 2019. Hence, keeping the schedules in mind, the team decided that Diwali 2020 would be best for the release,” said the source.
Talking about ‘Laal Singh Chaddha, the movie will be co-produced by Viacom 18 and Aamir Khan Productions. The rights for the movie have been bought from Paramount (it took them eight years to get the rights). The Hindi adaptation has been written by Atul Kulkarni who was seen with Aamir in ‘Rang De Basanti’. The movie will mostly be shot in North India in states like Punjab, Delhi, and Himachal Pradesh.
