The 1994 Oscar-winning Hollywood classic Forrest Gump, which follows Tom Hanks’ titular character’s development through the course of American history, served as the inspiration for Laal Singh Chaddha. The trailer for Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor and released between the IPL 2022 semifinal and championship, suggests that the film will follow a similar path. It shows a young Aamir Khan overcoming both physical and mental obstacles to complete a life-changing cross-country marathon.
In Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir Khan appears with an oversized beard like Tom Hanks, probably just before running the marathon, as shown in the movie’s trailer. Despite never being able to fully overcome his psychological barrier, Aamir Khan has managed to accomplish remarkable feats while taking part in numerous significant occasions in Indian history. The similarities to Forrest Gump are undeniable, but since Aamir is involved, we can’t wait to see how he differentiates this version of the story from the original.
