Soon, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen together in Lal Singh Chadha which is a remake of Tom Hanks starrer Forrest Gump. The movie has released in 1994. In the remake, Aamir Khan will be seen in the character played by Tom Hanks. Kareena has been signed to play the character of Robin Wright from the original movie. Shooting of Lal Singh Chadha is going to start from 31st October, 2019.
During an interaction with Rajeev Masand, Kareena Kapoor Khan has talked about her experience of auditioning for the movie Lal Singh Chadha. It is certainly first time in her career when she has auditioned for a role. Kareena has said “Knowing the way Aamir is, I think he wanted to be like 100 per cent sure. So very randomly, out of the blue, I got a call from Aamir. ‘I want you to hear this film, this and that and I am very excited about it.’ So, it just happened very organically. I heard the script like just then the minute he called me and he was just like let’s read some scenes. I want you to read some scenes. So, I was like yeah, I have never done anything like this. I thought like what the hell. I want to see myself if I want to do this or not and you know there is nothing wrong in that.”
Later on, she has added “I think the times are changing and if I don’t evolve and I behave like I am some diva or this is beyond me… And Saif (her actor husband Saif Ali Khan) was the one who told me, ‘What’s wrong with you? Even an Al Pacino would test for the part. There is nothing wrong, we all have to be sure as actors and artists.”
Release of Lal Singh Chadda is scheduled on Christmas, 2020.
