‘Laal Singh Chaddha’: Aamir Khan’s desi remake of Tom Hanks’ ‘Forrest Gump’ pushed to Christmas 2021
With the ongoing pandemic and its adverse effects, most anticipated movies are going through a reshuffle of their release date as health and safety of people are of utmost importance. Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s much-awaited movie ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ that was initially headed for a Christmas 2020 release has now been shifted to Christmas 2021.
Aamir Khan has a long-standing association with Christmas. All his movies released during Christmas have been super successful, be it ‘3 Idiots’, ‘PK’, ‘Dhoom 3’, ‘Dangal’ and more. His latest movie, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ which is based on Tom Hanks’ ‘Forrest Gump’, has already shot a few parts in Chandigarh and Kolkata before the nationwide lockdown was implicated. While the situation in the country remains to be crucial, the actor is recently in Turkey to do a recce for the movie.
Ever since the makers dropped the first look of Aamir as a Sikh man fans went berserk over it. Keeping the current scenario in mind, Aamir and the makers have announced a new release date and shifted it from this December to next December as the movie deserves a grand release.
Apart from Aamir and Kareena, Mona Singh is also in a pivotal role in the movie. All 3 of them last worked together in ‘3 Idiots’. The desi version of ‘Forrest Gump’ is adapted by Atul Kulkarni and is directed by Advait Chandan. The music is by Pritam and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
