Laal Singh Chaddha is an upcoming Hindi comedy-drama film directed by Advait Chandan and based on a script by Eric Roth and Atul Kulkarni. Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios, and Paramount Pictures are collaborating on the project. Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, and Naga Chaitanya appear in this remake of the 1994 American film Forrest Gump, which was based on Winston Groom’s 1986 novel of the same name (in his Hindi film debut)
Over the course of two decades, the adaptation of Forrest Gump underwent several revisions, with Atul Kulkarni spending the first 10 years developing the script and another ten years buying the remake rights. Aamir Khan, who purchased the film’s rights in early 2018, formally revealed the film’s title on March 14, 2019.
Laal Singh Chaddha was filmed in over 100 sites around India. On October 31, 2019, principal photography began in Chandigarh.
However, due to the COVID-19 epidemic in India, filming was suspended in March 2020 before restarting in Delhi in mid-September 2020, delaying the film’s initial release date of Christmas 2020 by a whole year. It will now be released in theaters during the Christmas season of 2021.

Aamir Khan stated in August 2018 that he had bought the remake rights to the 1994 American drama Forrest Gump from Paramount Pictures, the film’s producer and that he would play the lead role in the film. Khan formally revealed the project, which has been dubbed Laal Singh Chaddha, on March 14, 2019, his 54th birthday, with his ex-wife Kiran Rao co-producing. The adaptation will be helmed by Advait Chandan, who previously directed Khan’s Secret Superstar (2017).
The Hindi version of the original was written by Atul Kulkarni, who earlier collaborated with Khan in Rang De Basanti (2006). “I wrote the script 10 years ago,” Kulkarni said in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, “but Aamir took a few of years because he didn’t believe I must have written a strong story.” As a result, he didn’t want to damage me. He heard the script after a few years and stated within 30 seconds, “I’m going to do the picture.” “It took another 7-8 years to obtain the remake rights from the producers of the original (Paramount), as the film is completely based on the original, and Aamir made numerous visits to Los Angeles to see the studio leaders and get the rights of the film,” Kulkarni added.
He claims that all legalities were finished and the picture could be filmed after seven or eight years.”
Kareena Kapoor was announced to portray the female lead role in June 2019, with Khan playing the eponymous character for the third time following 3 Idiots (2009) and Talaash: The Answer Lies Within (2012). Vijay Sethupathi was signed with Khan in August 2019, however, he subsequently pulled out owing to other obligations. Yogi Babu was approached in September 2019 to play a key role. Mona SIngh, who also featured in Khan’s 3 Idiots, was cast in the crucial role in November 2019. Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are also expected to make cameo appearances with Aamir Khan. For the younger version of his part in the film, Aamir Khan dropped 20 kilos.
Naga Chaitanya, who would be making his Bollywood debut, was announced to be a member of the ensemble in May 2021.
Pritam scored the music for the film, which is his third collaboration with Aamir Khan following Dhoom 3 (2013) and Dangal (2016), while Amitabh Bhattacharya wrote the words for the songs. In August 2019, Khan’s Panchgani House hosted a piece of music sitting discussion with composer Pritam and lyricist Bhattacharya, who was working on the film’s soundtrack. Kannan Mohan of the Agnee band recorded the title tune of Laal Singh Chaddha, which was used in the motion poster, in January 2020.
