India's 'Forrest Gump' Remake 'Laal Singh Chaddha' Official Trailer
"Some people don't believe, but miracles do happen." Paramount has revealed the official US trailer for an Indian film titled Laal Singh Chaddha, which is really an official remake of Forrest Gump set in India instead. Apparently this has been in the works for along time - they spent ten years adapting the script, then another ten years purchasing the remake rights, finally securing them in 2018. Laal Singh Chaddha has been filmed in more than 100 Indian locations. The plot is similar - events in India's history unfold through the perspective of Laal Singh Chaddha, a dim-witted man, as played by famous actor / filmmaker Aamir Khan. The film's cast also includes Kareena Kapoor, Naga Chaitanya, Mona Singh, Manav Vij, and Aaryaa Sharma. This actually looks amazing?! I'm serious! Bollywood is really rocking right now and this is a seemingly impressive that looks as endearing as the original. I want to see this. It might be pretty good.
