Two and a half decades after its release, Forrest Gump is making a return to the silver screen in the form of a Bollywood remake. The Tom-Hanks-led comedy drama is being picked up by no other than Bollywood actor/producer Aamir Khan, who announced the news last Thursday on the actor’s 54th birthday at a media event in Mumbai. “We have bought the rights from Paramount,” Khan said. “I have always loved Forrest Gump as a script. It is a wonderful story about this character. It is a feel-good film. It is a film for the whole family.”

Entitled Lal Singh Chadha, the film will be produced wholly in Hindi, but given Khan’s previous work and their success, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the film was to be translated and subtitled for release in other countries across the globe. Khan himself will be playing the lead role, taking up Tom Hanks’ mantle, and the remake will be directed by Advait Chandan, whose other work include the 2017 musical drama Secret Superstar, in which Khan also played a role. The lead actor’s banner, Aamir Khan Films, will helm production alongside Viacom India’s film unit, Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

As of now, there is no release date yet for Lal Singh Chadha.
