On his birthday this year, Aamir Khan announced the film by revealing a few details about it. The actor, who will try to re-create the mesmerising story of Forrest Gump, went through a physical transformation for his role in the film. Earlier, in an interview with the news agency PTI, he revealed his plan to lose 20 kilos to prepare for the role. "I have to lose weight. I will be losing 20 kilos. I have to be lean and slim," he told PTI.
The original film - Forrest Gump - is an American comedy-drama based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Winston Groom. The story revolves around the life of Forrest Gump - the titular character with a golden heart- who witnesses several historical events of the United States in the 20th century. Forrest Gump was directed by Robert Zemeckis and also featured Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Sally Field, Haley Joel Osment and Mykelti Williamson in the lead roles.
Coming back to Lal Singh Chaddha, directed by Advait Chandan and produced by Viacom18 Studios and Aamir Khan Productions, the film is written by Atul Kulkarni.
