Bollywood Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan, who scored a debacle with his last release Thugs of Hindostan, is remaking Tom Hanks’ Oscar-winning 1994 film Forrest Gump in Hindi with the title Lal Singh Chadha. The film will be directed by Advait Chandan, who made his directorial debut with Aamir’s production venture Secret Superstar in 2015. 

We recently reported that Aamir Khan recently met Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi to play an important role in one of his upcoming films. The latest buzz says that Vijay Sethupathi has been approached to play Mykelti Williamson's role in Lal Singh Chadha. In the original, Mukelti played Bubba, Tom Hanks’s friend in the army camp. Later, Tom Hanks gives a share of profit from his Shrimp business to Bubba’s mother in the film. We hear that in the remake, Bubba’s character is a Tamilian so they want Vijay Sethupathi to play the particular character.

Produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures, Lal Singh Chadha is expected to go on floors in October. The film is slated for release on Christmas 2020.
