Advait Chandan of ‘Secret Superstar’ fame is directing the film, which is the official remake of widely acclaimed American film ‘Forrest Gump’. The film’s first look has been released and it features Aamir Khan sporting a turban and a long beard. Kareena Kapoor plays the female lead in the film.
‘Forrest Gump’ starring Tom Hanks is a Hollywood classic that got released in 1994. It is a comedy drama based on the novel of the same name by Winston Groom. The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Eric Roth. It had won six Academy Awards for best picture, best director, best actor, best adapted screenplay, best visual effects and best film editing.
It will be interesting to see how ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ has been adapted to suit the sensibilities of the Indian audience as the original had a lot of references of American pop culture.
