Aamir Khan’s ‘Forrest Gump’ Remake For Viacom18 Shifts to Turkey Shoot, Delaying Release
Production of “Laal Singh Chaddha,” starring Aamir Khan (“Dangal”) and Kareena Kapoor Khan (“Angrezi Medium”) has moved to Turkey, due to the continuing coronavirus crisis in India.

“Laal Singh Chadha” is an official remake of Paramount Pictures’ 1994 Oscar-winner “Forrest Gump,” being produced by Viacom18 Studios and Aamir Khan Productions. It is adapted by Atul Kulkarni from Eric Roth’s screenplay.

The film’s shooting schedule in Punjab, northern India, was halted in March due to the pandemic. Consequently, the film’s release, originally scheduled for Christmas 2020, has now been pushed to Christmas 2021.

“We will still keep the Chirstmas (sic) date, not 2020, but in 2021. #LaalSinghChaddha. New Release Date. @aamir_khan @Viacom18Studios All focus on film completion for now!,” tweeted Viacom18 Studios COO Ajit Andhare.
