The official trailer of the much awaited Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha finally released yesterday on May 29 during the IPL finale which saw Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans compete against one another. The film is an official remake of the 1994 American film Forrest Gump which itself is based on Winston Groom's 1986 novel of the same name, the film stars Aamir Khan as the titular character along with Kareena Kapoor and features Mona Singh in an important role. It also marks Naga Chaitanya’s Bollywood debut with Shah Rukh Khan reportedly playing a cameo in the film and is all set to release in theatres on 11 August 2022.

The trailer begins with Khan picking up a feather and progresses onto his character saying, “Meri mummy kehti thi zindagi golgappe jaisi hondi hai, pet bhale hi bhar jaave, mann nahi bharta”, which is essentially the Hindi version of the famous line said in the original movie - "My mama always said, life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get”. It also looks to cover Laal Singh Chaddha across different age groups and his journey from being a physically challenged child to getting enrolled in the Indian Army. Almost every scene in the trailer seems to be shot in a different location, giving the audience a sense of the grand scale of the film.

The upcoming comedy drama film is directed by Advait Chandan and screenplay written by Eric Roth and Atul Kulkarni. The film is produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios and Paramount Pictures. Advait Chandan has previously directed Khan in the 2017 film Secret Superstar, which also featured Zaira Wasim and Meher Vij in prominent roles. This is also the third collaboration between Aamir and Kareena after the Rajkumar Hirani directorial 3 Idiots (2009) and Reema Kagti’s Talaash: The Answer Lies Within (2012).
