Indian Bollywood actor – Aamir Khan is gearing up for another film which according to reports will be a Hindi remake of Hollywood film Forrest Gump. One of the very important parts of the movie would be the controversial demolition of the Babri Mosque.
Aamir Khan, who declared the adaptation on the legendary Hollywood movie his 54th birthday, will essay the role of Tom Hanks. According to The Indian Express, the film will revolve around India’s national growth in the last couple of years
The movie titled as Lal Singh Chaddha will feature the highly-controversial 1992 demolition of Babri Mosque which is located in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. Not only this, the Dangal actor’s film will reportedly, also show the formation of the Modi government in India.
“Lal Singh Chaddha will show Aamir Khan meeting important political and historical personalities in VFX laden visuals. It will also show specific instances like the Babri Mosque demolition to other current political and national happenings like the formation of the Modi government and more,” an industry source told The Indian Express.
“Lal Singh Chaddha is not just a film. It will be a reference for the world to see what happened in India in the past few years like how the Paramount film Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks, did with reference to the US”.
The source added, “What Aamir and director Advait Chandan clearly understand is that the film’s political symbolism at many places will have different interpretations and hence, they are assuring that it will not rake up too much controversy and will not inadvertently create trouble for the film.”
Lal Singh Chaddha is scheduled to hit the screens in 2020.
