Indian ‘Forrest Gump’ Remake Starring Aamir Khan Delays To 2021 As Production Shifts To Turkey
Laal Singh Chaddha, the Hindi-language Forrest Gump remake starring Indian megastar Aamir Khan, is moving production to Turkey after a delay due to the pandemic.
Ajit Andhare, COO at producer Viacom18 Studios, took to Twitter to confirm that the pic would still be releasing for Christmas… but 2021 rather than the originally planned 2020 date, which is no longer doable due to the coronavirus disruption.
Laal Singh Chaddha was first unveiled last year, with Viacom18 Motion Pictures producing alongside Aamir Khan Films and Paramount having licensed the rights. Advait Chandan, who previously directed Khan in Secret Superstar, is helming the pic, which is not a direct remake but will transpose events from the 1994 Oscar-winning movie to India, tying it in with local historical events.
