Last seen in Yash Raj Films’ Thugs of Hindostan (2018), Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan will soon start shooting for his next movie Lal Singh Chadda. The film, written by Atul Kulkarni, is an official remake of the Tom Hank starrer Hollywood biggie Forrest Gump (1994). Khan announced the project on his birthday in March.

According to reports, Aamir Khan wants to keep Lal Singh Chadda as authentic as possible. To add authenticity, he is planning to shoot the movie at 100 real locations across India. The script demands the actor to showcase his character’s journey across different age groups starting from his childhood to his fifties. It requires him to be at different locations each time.

Since Aamir Khan is not the one who compromises on anything when it comes to filmmaking, he has asked his team to scout 100 locations across the country where the movie can be shot. Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bengaluru and Hyderabad are some of the cities where the team will be shooting for sure. Besides these cities, there will also be several states where Aamir Khan is planning to shoot for the first time.

Lal Singh Chadda will be directed by Advait Chandan. He made his directorial debut with the critically and commercially successful film Secret Superstar (2017), featuring Zaira Wasim and Aamir Khan.

Though the makers are yet to announce the name of the leading lady, rumours are rife that Kareena Kapoor Khan might reunite with Khan after their last film Talaash: The Answer Lies Within (2012).

Lal Singh Chaddha is scheduled to enter theatres during Christmas 2020.
