Aamir Khan to remake Hollywood classic Forrest Gump, his role not decided yet

Aamir Khan works on only one film in a year. This year on his birthday he had announced to produce a remake of Hollywood classic Forrest Gump.

The Hindi-language film will be entitled Lal Singh Chadha and likely to star Khan in the lead role. However, it is not yet confirmed.

It will be directed by Advait Chandan who helmed the actor’s 2017 musical drama Secret Superstar.

Lal Singh Chadha will be produced by the actor’s banner Aamir Khan Films along with Viacom’s Indian film unit, Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

Aamir has been working on the role in this film for quite some time.

Aamir, who is called Mr. Perfectionist, does a lot of research on all roles and also experiments for a different look.

According to sources, Aamir is gearing up to make films under his production house.

A source revealed: “It is very rarely that Aamir has worked on two films simultaneously. Last time he had worked for Dangal and Secret Superstar. But he had limited role in Secret Superstar. He is likely to work on one more film besides Forrest Gump. He has registered two titles ‘Uncle’ and ‘Uncle Ji’ for his production. There is not much information about this movie but it is said that Aamir would soon start work on it.”

Aamir’s team is working for the film but it is not clear whether he would act in the film or only produce it under his banner.

As far as Lal Singh Chadha is concerned, Aamir is going to reduce his weight by 15 kg for the film. Director Advait Chandan will lock the casting for the film and it will start this year.
