Mumbai: Superstar Aamir Khan’s much-awaited movie Laal Singh Chaddha has finished its production, the makers announced Friday. Backed by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios and Paramount Pictures, Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan. It should be stated here that the last time Aamir Khan and Kareena were seen together in the film 3 Idiots.
Laal Singh Chaddha is an official adaptation of Hollywood star Tom Hanks’ 1994 movie Forrest Gump. The film went on floors last year and was shot across 100 locations in India. According to the makers, the shoot of the film recently wrapped up in the city, with the cast and crew celebrating the moment on its set. Those who have seen the rushes of the movies have been vociferous in praise of Aamir and Kareena.
Laal Singh Chaddha has been helmed by Advait Chandan. He made his directorial debut with the 2017 musical drama Secret Superstar, starring Aamir and Zaira Wasim.
Atul Kulkarni shares the screenplay credit for Laal Singh Chaddha along with Eric Roth, who had adapted the 1986 novel for the Hanks’ movie.
Forrest Gump chronicled the life story of the titular protagonist, a slow-witted but kindhearted man from Alabama. The movie had won six Academy Awards, including ‘Best Picture’, ‘Best Actor’ for Hanks and best director for Robert Zemeckis.
Laal Singh Chaddha is scheduled to be released on Christmas this year. Provided of course the pandemic again doesn’t hit the country with its third wave.
