Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan is celebrating his 54th birthday today and as usual, on his special day, the actor treated his fans with a very big announcement. Yes, the actor has announced his next film and it is called ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ (tentative title) which is an official adaptation of the hit American comedy-drama ‘Forrest Gump’.

For quite some time now, rumours abounded that Aamir is thinking about remaking Tom Hank’s iconic film ‘Forrest Gump’. Today, by confirming the news, Aamir has given his fans a reason to rejoice because after the debacle of ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’, everyone was eager to know about his next project.

‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ will be directed by Advait Chandan, who has previously directed ‘Secret Superstar’. Now we all know how much effort Aamir puts in his roles, and for this one too, he is going to lose 20 kgs and will be sporting a turban in a specific part in the film.

Today, while interacting with the media, Aamir spoke about his fondness for ‘Forrest Gump’ and how it took him eight long years to acquire the rights of the cult classic.  The actor said that he always wanted to make this film and now that it is finally happening, he is over the moon.

Bankrolled by Paramount Pictures, Viacom18 and Aamir Khan Productions, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ will hit the silver screens in 2020.
