Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has been working on the official Hindi adaptation of the Hollywood movie Forrest Gump that starred Tom Hanks. The movie that has been titled Laal Singh Chaddha has been scripted by actor Atul Kulkarni. Kulkarni had written the script nearly 10 years ago. In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Atul Kulkarni reveals why it took so long for the film to go on floors.
When asked about his experience on writing Laal Singh Chaddha, Atul Kulkarni said, “It has been a really long, long journey, because I had written it almost 10 years back and Aamir took a couple of years because he did not believe that I must have written a good script. So he did not want to hurt me. We used to meet but he never heard the script. After a couple of years he heard the script and within 30 seconds he said I am going to do the film. For the last 7-8 years we were trying for the rights because it is completely based on Forrest Gump. It is an adaptation of the film. We could not get the rights. Aamir made multiple trips to LA and he met the studio bosses and a lot of other people. But after 7-8 years we got the rights. We have started the shoot. I think we have completed 60-70 percent of the shoot. But now because of corona the shooting has stopped and we hope to complete it soon.”
