The producers of Aamir Khan’s upcoming film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha' have released a brief glimpse into the film’s world with a new clip. In the 20-second clip, we see Aamir’s titular character begin his training to join the Indian Army. Co-actors Kareena Kapoor, Naga Chaitanya, and Mona Singh also make brief appearances.
Viacom 18 Studios, one of the production companies backing the film, shared the clip on YouTube on Tuesday evening. The video opens with Laal taking his mother’s blessings as the next scene shows he is telling Kareena’s character that his mother wants him to join the Army but he is uncertain as he doesn’t like beating people. A montage then shows Laal’s life at the Army training school where he meets his friend Bala (Naga Chaitanya). At the end, the drill sergeant compliments Laal and calls him a genius, in a scene that mirrors the original, Forrest Gump.
Directed by Advait Chavan, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha' is the official Hindi adaption of Tom Hanks' Hollywood film, Forrest Gump. Starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Naga Chaitanya, and Mona Singh in important roles, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha' is scheduled to release in theatres on August 11, 2022. The film is produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios, and Paramount Pictures.
Meanwhile, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha' has been facing calls for a boycott on social media with many people unhappy with Aamir Khan’s past statements about India.
