Vijay Sethupathi to reduce weight for Aamir Khan’s Lal Singh Chaddha
As we already know, Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan is starring in the official remake of classic American film ‘Forrest Gump’. The remake titled as ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is being directed by Advait Chandan of ‘Secret Superstar’ fame. Veteran actor Atul Kulkarni has scripted the movie. Shoot is progressing at a brisk pace as it is scheduled for Christmas release this year.
Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi will be making his Hindi debut by playing a crucial role in the film. It is widely reported that he will be essaying the role of Benjamin Buford Bubba from ‘Forrest Gump’. It is an army man’s character, so we hear that Vijay Sethupathi is set to shed a few pounds. The actor will be working out hard to reduce weight and look fit for the character. It is a very prominent role and needless to say, it will be interesting to see Aamir and Sethupathi sharing screen space.
‘Forrest Gump’ starring Tom Hanks is a Hollywood classic that got released in 1994. The movie was directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Eric Roth. It won a total of six Academy Awards including best picture, best director, best actor, best adapted screenplay, best visual effects and best film editing. Apparently, the Hindi version, ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ has been adapated to suit the sensibilities of the Indian audience.
Aamir Khan is also producing it jointly with Viacom 18 Motion Productions. The film that has Kareena Kapoor as the female lead is currently being shot across India.
