Aamir Khan’s ambitious project ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is gearing up for release on August 11. Since the actor is making his big-screen comeback after a four-year absence, people have high hopes for this movie. Aamir claimed to have been working on this project for many years in numerous interviews.
Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump, a Hollywood classic, is officially remade as “Laal Singh Chaddha.” Aamir, who is regarded as one of the best method actors in Indian film, has a soft spot in his heart for “Forrest Gump.” He once said in an interview that it nearly took him ten years to obtain the rights to adapt “Forrest Gump.” That in itself has made it clear how fervently Aamir Khan feels about this picture.
Aamir Khan is attempting to reach out to a larger audience with this movie at the same time as pan-Indian cinema has acquired popularity in our nation. In order to boost “Laal Singh Chaddha” in the south Indian market, Aamir offered south star Vijay Sethupathi a significant role in the movie; however, for an unspecified reason, Vijay backed out of the project, and the role ultimately went to Tollywood actor Naga Chaitanya.
Aamir anticipates that Naga Chaitanya’s fame in Telugu areas will help him gain market share in South Indian markets. But with his supporting part in the movie, does Naga Chaitanya have the ability to aid Aamir’s movie a triumph in Telugu-speaking states? Given Naga Chaitanya’s current career situation and the colossal failure of his most recent film, “Thank You,” this is an extremely difficult undertaking for Chaitanya. Additionally, compared to actors today, the “Thank you” actor is less popular among the general public. Seems like Aamir has picked the wrong option from Tollywood.

Laal Singh Chaddha directed by Advait Chandan, backed by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions, the film is scheduled to be released worldwide on August 11. The film also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya in lead roles.
