Laal Singh Chaddha poster out: Aamir Khan arrives with a box of sweets
Directed by Advait Chandan, the official Hindi remake of Forrest Gump also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan
Aamir Khan has arrived with a box of sweets — or is it chocolates? — in the first-look poster of Laal Singh Chaddha. The film, directed by Advait Chandan, is the official Hindi remake of Forrest Gump.
Just like the endearing, slow-witted protagonist of the Tom Hanks film, Aamir is seen flashing a grin as he sits inside a train. He is wearing a pink-and-blue checkered shirt and a matching turban.
Aamir tweeted earlier today, introducing the character.

Released in 1994, Forrest Gump tells the story of an Alabama youth whose life journey coincides with key events in 20th century America. The film was awarded six Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor.
Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh. Vijay Sethupathi is rumoured to play Aamir’s best friend in the film. Produced by Viacom 18 Studios and Aamir Khan Productions, the comedy-drama is set for release on Christmas 2020.
