Marking the occasion of his birthday Aamir Khan announced his upcoming next titled ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, which will be an official adaptation of Tom Hanks ‘Forest Gump’. The actor will be seen essaying the character of Tom Hanks, which will be directed by ‘Secret Superstar’ fame Advait Chandan and co-produced with the association of Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.

The actor shared the news on his birthday and had said, “My next film is finalized it is called ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. It is being made by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions together. It will be directed by Advait Chandan. It is an adaptation of Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’. We have bought the rights from Paramount… I am playing the lead role of Lal Singh. We have started the prep work on the film. The shoot will start from October. I will be prepping for six months. I have to lose weight. I will be losing 20 kgs. I have to be lean and slim. I have always loved ‘Forrest Gump’ as a script. It is a wonderful story about this character. It is a life affirming story. It is a feel good film. It is a film for the whole family.

The actor had also revealed he would be sporting a turban “for some part of the film”. The film, based on Winston Groom’s 1986 novel of the same name, follows Forrest Gump, a dim-witted man from Alabama, who witnesses and unwittingly influences several historical events in 20th century USA.

Ranbir Kapoor and Ajay Devgn are said to begin shoot for the film from the start of next year. The film will bring back Ranbir and Ajay for the second time after ‘Rajneeti’. The yet-untitled project has a great buzz online.

Both the films will be really big. Only time will tell if either of them decide to shift their release date. If they don’t it surely will be a boom-boom Christmas 2020.
