The original film Forest Gump by Hollywood star Tom Hanks in 1994 was about a slow-witted guy who witnessed some historical events in the United States in the 20th century.

As per the trailer, it seems the same will be showcased for the Indian Remake only difference will be we will witness some significant historical witnesses of India on the big screens, such as the Kargil War, major Economic depression etc. (This is our assumption)

It was reported that Aamir had lost 20 kgs for Laal Singh Chaddha.

We all know how dedicated Aamir Khan is when it comes to filmmaking. During Dangaal, he had put up weight for a small portion of the filming and again went back to being Ripped on screen for the latter half of the shooting.

So it will surely be interesting to see his journey in Laal Singh Chaddha, which is all set to release on 11 August 2022.
