Aamir Khan set to resume shoot for Lal Singh Chaddha in Turkey
After months of waiting for the Covid-19 crisis to end, Aamir Khan has finally decided to go ahead with the shoot of his much-anticipated film ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’. It is learnt that the team is planning to resume shoot the film in foreign countries. The makers have zeroed in on Turkey and Georgia as the ideal locations. Both these countries are separated by a two-hour flight distance and have done relatively well to control the pandemic.
‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is the official remake of classic American film ‘Forrest Gump’. The Hindi version is being 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.
Aamir Khan is also producing the film jointly with Viacom 18 Motion Productions. The makers had originally announced it as Christmas 2020 release but it seems highly unlikely as 30-35% of the portions still remain to be shot.
