As of late, Aamir Khan reported that he will be producing and starring in the remake of Oscar-winning Hollywood blockbuster Forrest Gump that featured Tom Hanks in the lead role. According to News18, the remake is likely titled Lal Singh Chaddha and will be directed by Advait Chandan.
Aamir Khan made the declaration amid a press meet on his birthday on 14th March, where he included that he will experience a physical change for the job too. While he has unquestionably given outstanding motion pictures previously, reproducing one of the Hollywood greats like Forrest Gump is no child’s play.

3. Not a child’s play
Its not going to be an easy task to remake such an all time cult like Forrest Gump. But someone like @aamir_khan is definitely trustworthy. Lots of looks, mannerisms, episodes, changeovers, he can pull it off. This is an exciting news. #LalSinghChadha

12. How about that?
Forrest Gump is very similar to Aamir Khan’s PK. He nailed that role and I’m sure he’s going to nail Laal Singh Chaddha too!

13. Telling it like it is!
Bollywood nowadays: Jingoism, Half-baked manipulated biographies and sports dramas. With @aamir_khan venturing into H'wood remake, don't be surprised if a series of remakes follow. Bollywood sucks big time of late. #LaalSinghChaddha #ForrestGumpRemake #SHIT

15. Mind = blown!
Aamir Khan's next is an official adaptation of Forrest Gump and I am not surprised. He must have wanted to do this for the longest time.
So much so that he was subconsciously playing the part in many roles he did like P.K. , Dhoom 3 etc
