News has surfaced that ‘Laal Singh Chaddha,’ Aamir Khan’s official remake of the Tom Hanks classic ‘Forrest Gump’ (1994), begins in the year 1968, when the protagonist is a child, and ends in the year 2018.
This means that some of the significant events in India like the Emergency, 1983 Cricket World Cup, Operation Blue Star, the Rath Yatra and the 1999 Kargil War will also haven been incorporated in the script.
Additionally, Shah Rukh Khan also has a cameo, reports Bollywood Hungama. As per reports, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is shown interacting with the younger Shah Rukh, and it’s said to be one of the most memorable sequences in the film.
A trade expert says, “It’s an interesting idea and by showing the bygone era, the film will also appeal to the older generation and the old-timers. Aamir Khan is known for being the box office king. Laal Singh Chaddha has the potential to be yet another grosser if these details are anything to go through.”
The movie is co-produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Studios and is directed by Advait Chandan of ‘Secret Superstar’ (2017) fame.
‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ releases on 11th February next year.
