Directed by Advait Chauhan of Secret Superstar fame, Lal Singh Chadda stars Kareena Kapoor, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya in lead roles. The film will release in theaters on August 11.
When asked about the changes made from the original to suit the Indian audience, Aamir Prabhat told Khabar, “Lal Singh Chadha is majorly inspired by the original, Forrest Gump. However, we have made some changes to suit the sensibilities of the Indian audience. The Hollywood film had some adult scenes, which we have not taken in our film. We want people to watch our film with their whole family.
Aamir told the daily that he wanted to grow his beard a little longer for his role in Lal Singh Chadha, but could only grow it up to six inches long. When everyone started appreciating son Junaid Khan’s work in the audition clips, Junaid decided to do it and cut his beard. It was later decided that Aamir should take it up instead of Hosaba, which he said did not leave enough time for Aamir to grow a long beard.
As the release of the film approaches, many internet users have raised a boycott against the film. Reacting to the trends, Aamir told ANI on Monday, “Boycott Bollywood…Boycott Aamir Khan…Boycott Lal Singh Chadha…I’m sad because a lot of people who are saying this in their hearts believe that it’s me. Anyone who doesn’t like India… in their heart they believe that… and that’s very false. I really love the country.”
