Aamir Khan’s Lal Singh Chaddha pushed to Christmas 2021
‘Lal Singh Chaddha’, Aamir Khan’s Hindi version of the English classic ‘Forrest Gump’, is eagerly awaited by many. The film was originally planned as a Christmas 2020 release and the makers were on track with swift progress in shoot, before the pandemic struck. Works have been put on hold for the last few months and that has forced a change in release plans. The film has now been pushed to next year December.
Trade anlayst Taran Adarsh broke the news about the release postponing. He tweeted,
NEW RELEASE DATE… #LaalSinghChaddha – starring #AamirKhan and #KareenaKapoorKhan – will now release on #Christmas2021… Costars #MonaSingh… Directed by Advait Chandan… Produced by #AamirKhan, #KiranRao and #Viacom18Studios.
‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is directed by Advait Chandan of ‘Secret Superstar’ fame. Veteran actor Atul Kulkarni has scripted the film. Kareena Kapoor plays the female lead and Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi is also said to be playing an important role.
The makers are planning to resume shoot in foreign countries. The remaining portions of the film will be shot in Turkey and Georgia. Both these countries are separated by a two-hour flight distance and have done relatively well to control the pandemic.
