Laal Singh Chadha happens to be an official Hindi remake of Hollywood star Tom Hanks' 'Forrest Gump'.
Earlier, talking about the film, Aamir told PTI, "I have always loved 'Forrest Gump' as a script. It is a wonderful story about this character. It is a life-affirming story. It is a feel-good film. It is a film for the whole family."
In the same interview, Aamir revealed that he would don a turban "for some part of the film". Aamir was last seen in Yash Raj Films' Thugs of Hindostan alongside megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The film, however, bombed at the Box Office.
