Laal Singh Chaddha: stars Aamir Khan along Kareena Kapoor Khan and Naga Chaitanya; Crew shot scenes in Kargil

Aamir Khan’s look for upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha shows a really interesting look of the Dangal hero. This film Stars Amir Khan along with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Tollywood’s Naga Chaitanya.

This film is an Adaptation of Forest Gump by Winston Groom. Aamir Khan bought the rights of the film in early 2018 and announced it in 2019. The movie was all set to be released in 2020 but the pandemic hit hard the world and was thus delayed.

The film was shot first in Chandigarh then the crew flew to Kargil, Jammu and Kashmir to shoot for an important sequence of the film. Aamir Khan held a conference with ex wife Kiran Rao where the 90s actor said,  “Humari film Laal Singh Chaddha mein ek sequence hai jo Kargil jo humara war hui thi, us par based hain. Ek incident hai, toh zahir hai, hum Kargil aayege. Kyunki jo Kargil ki war hai wo yahi hui thi tho hum chahege jitna hum accurate rahe, lihaza, ek sequence hai film ke andar Kargil ki war ka jo humne yaha shoot kiya hai.”

Another detail that Aamir went on to share was that a part of the film is based on the Kargil War and to stay true to the authenticity, Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist and his team decided to shoot that portion exactly where it happened.  Doing the shoot of the film, the actress Kareena Kapoor Khan was pregnant and so the shots had to be shot soon before she got bloated and this too was a tough job during the pandemic.
