After weeks of rumours, Kareena Kapoor Khan has been confirmed opposite Aamir Khan in the Hindi remake of ‘Forrest Gump’ called ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’.
While Aamir Khan essays the titular role in the film, Kareena will be seen paired opposite him for the third time. The superhit duo has shared screen space in the past in ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Talaash’. ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is directed by Advait Chandan of Secret Superstar fame and is being written by Atul Kulkarni. The film will release in Christmas 2020.
Delving a bit deeper into the association with Aamir Khan Productions and Paramount Pictures, Ajit
Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Studios says, “It gives me immense pleasure to announce our upcoming
venture with Aamir Khan titled Laal Singh Chaddha. For every cinephile out there, the must watch list
of films would be incomplete without the mention of Forrest Gump. To be able to adapt the classic
for Indian audiences is a long-cherished dream for many of us. Knowing Aamir’s burning passion for
this subject for many years, he is the perfect partner to bring to life this dream. I also want to thank Jim, Andrew and the wonderful team at Paramount Pictures for believing in our vision and
continuously supporting all endeavors to bring some of their best content to the Indian markets.”
“We’re thrilled to be in business with Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Studios, and to see
them bringing this timeless story to a whole new generation of audiences,” said Andrew Gumpert,
Chief Operating Officer of Paramount Pictures.
