Aamir Khan: “Curious to see Tom Hanks’ reaction to ‘Laal Singh Chaddha”
Laal Singh Chaddha starring, Aamir Khan, and Kareena Kapoor Khan is all set for its release on 11th August 2022.
Aamir Khan, who is preparing to premiere his upcoming film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha,’ says he is looking forward to seeing Tom Hanks’ reaction to the Bollywood rendition of the legendary film ‘Forrest Gump.’
Talking about it Aamir said, “Forrest Gump is an iconic film. I am very curious to see how Tom Hanks reacts after watching the film. He is a wonderful actor”.
Interestingly, at a meeting with Steven Spielberg, Aamir Khan met Tom Hanks. Spielberg was in Germany at the time, filming a film with ‘Forrest Gump’ actor Tom Hanks. When Aamir met Spielberg and Tom Hanks, he was startled to learn that they had both seen 3 Idiots three times. Not only that, but Spielberg referred to Aamir as India’s James Cameron when introducing him to Tom Hanks. The true ice-breaking took place during this encounter when Aamir respectfully requested that Spielberg speaks with Robert Zemeckis.
Aamir was told by Speilberg that his bond with Zemeckis was similar to that of a father and son. In addition, the Hollywood legend stated that father and son don’t always get along. Nonetheless, Spielberg revealed to Aamir why Zemeckis refused to meet with him. The director of Forrest Gump and the Back To The Future films apparently didn’t want to say no to Aamir. Aamir, never one to give up easily, persisted and was eventually able to get the remake rights to Forrest Gump from producers Paramount Pictures.
‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, and Chaitanya Akkineni.
