There have been a lot of speculations about Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan’s next project after his much-hyped recent release Thugs Of Hindostan, which bombed at the box-office without a trace.
Some recent reports suggested that the Dangal (2016) star was looking at making a seven-part web-series on Indian epic Mahabharata. However, the latest we hear that the superstar is keen on remaking a blockbuster Hollywood biggie in Hindi.
According to reports, Aamir Khan has bought the remake rights to 1994 American romcom Forrest Gump, which starred Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson and Sally Field in principal roles.
If reports are to be believed, the Bollywood remake of Forrest Gump will be helmed by Advait Chandan, who rose to fame after helming the Zaira Wasim starrer Secret Superstar (2017), produced by Aamir Khan Productions. Khan may play the male lead in the flick.
An official announcement is awaited.
