Laal Singh Chaddha: Telugu star Naga Chaitanya to enter Bollywood with this Aamir Khan starrer?
Aamir Khan had announced his film Laal Singh Chaddha back in March 2019. Ever since then his fans have been eagerly waiting for the film’s release. The film’s release date, which was scheduled to be during Christmas 2020, was pushed owing to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier there were reports of Tamil superstar Vijay Sethupathi starring alongside Aamir in Laal Singh Chaddha. However, post Vijay’s exit from the film it is now being reported that Telugu star Naga Chaitanya has stepped into his shoes.
If the latest buzz is anything to go by, then Naga Chaitanya has been approached for the same role which was earlier offered to Vijay Sethupathi. The reports also state that Naga will kickstart the shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha in May this year. Interestingly if these reports turn out to be true then this will be the first time when Naga will be seen in a Hindi film.

Apparently, the makers of Laal Singh Chaddha will make an announcement about Naga coming on board for their film very soon.
Earlier, revealing the reason why he had to opt-out of this Aamir Khan starrer, Vijay had told The News Minute, “Then COVID happened. It ransacked all our plans. After the lockdown, I had five Telugu projects in various stages of production to complete. I just couldn’t accommodate Laal Singh Chadha in my schedule.”
Coming back to Laal Singh Chaddha, it is helmed by Advait Chandan of Secret Superstar fame. The film is an official adaptation of Tom Hanks’ The Forrest Gump that released in 1994. Apart from Aamir, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh.
