Makers of Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, reveal the trailer. Helmed by Advait Chandan, it’s the Hindi adaptation of the acclaimed Hollywood film, Forrest Gump.
The first glimpse gets released during the first innings of the IPL 2022 finale. In the trailer, Aamir plays the role of a Laal, a specially-abled child, while Mona Singh plays his mother. She implores that her son will receive equality within society.
As the trailer continues, the grown-up Laal (Khan) is shown running without the help of leg braces. He then joins the Indian Army where he becomes friends with Naga Chaitanya’s character and serves the country. In fact, this role marks Chaitanya’s Hindi debut.
We also get a taste of Aamir and Kareena Kapoor’s romance, followed by heartbreak. He wants to marry Vimmy (Kapoor Khan), but she rejects him on the basis of it being a directionless relationship.
Towards the end of the trailer, Aamir is sporting a full-grown beard and a turban. Just like in Forrest Gump, Tom Hanks says “Mama always said life is like a box of chocolates.” Similarly, Laal says, “Maa kehti thi zindagi golgappe ki tarah hoti hai, pet bhale bharjawe, maan nahi bharta.”
Laal Singh Chaddha is backed by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios and Paramount Pictures. The Bollywood adaptation is written by award-winning actor, Atul Kulkarni.
The picture releases on August 11, 2022.
