Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha is all set to release this week on 11 August 2022, coinciding with Raksha Bandhan and Independence Day. Ever since the film was announced, there has been a lot of questions going about whether the Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, will have a cameo appearance in it. Now Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan, reacts to these speculations.
We all know that SRK and Aamir share a great bond and there is no hiding this fact. But recently in an interview, the PK actor opened up about how he convinced King Khan to make a cameo appearance in the film Laal Singh Chaddha. He said, “Well Shah Rukh is a friend and I told him that, 'I need someone who can represent what Elvis Presley represented in America. I need the biggest iconic star of India, which is why I am coming to you'. He was really sweet and he said, ‘Yes’.”
The upcoming film has been directed by Advait Chandan and produced under the banners of Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Studios. The film serves as the official remake of the 1994 Hollywood film Forrest Gump which starred Tom Hanks in the lead. The film itself was based on the 1986 novel of the same name written by Winston Groom.
Other than Aamir, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, and Naga Chaitanya who will be making his big Hindi film debut with this flick. The film score is composed by Tanuj Tiku while the original songs featured in the film are composed by Pritam and lyrics for the songs are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
