Bollywood’s legendary actor Aamir Khan is all set to complete the remaining half of his film Laal Singh Chaddha, a remake of the 1994 US comedy-drama starring Tom Hanks, in Turkey.

In March, the schedule of Laal Singh Chaddha was cut short abruptly due to Coronavirus pandemic. The shoot will now resume after nearly five months.

The film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role and is the official Hindi remake of the film Forrest Gump. The actor announced the film last year on his birthday.

Aamir Khan, who came to Turkey on a special invitation from the Culture and Tourism Ministry to promote his film Superstar in 2017, had shown great interest in Istanbul and Ankara.

Earlier, the film was scheduled to hit the theatres on Christmas. However, the pandemic delayed its release.

The original film, Forrest Gump, is an American comedy-drama based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Winston Groom.

The story showcases the life of Forrest Gump – the titular character played by Tom Hanks – who witnesses several historical events of the United States in the 20th century.

Forrest Gump was directed by Robert Zemeckis and also featured Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Sally Field, and Mykelti Williamson.
