Laal Singh Chaddha


A life-affirming story chronicling the extraordinary life of an ordinary man, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is a retelling of the Academy Award®-winning motion picture ‘Forrest Gump,’ through the lens of India’s modern history and culture.  The film brings together Aamir Khan, star of the Academy Award®-nominated Lagaan, and Kareena Kapoor Khan to deliver audiences heart, humor and optimism.

With a childhood marked by a unique bond between Laal and his single mother, tempered with strong values, the story follows Laal’s journey of love, innocence and destiny as he triumphs over life’s many
challenges. As he wins the hearts of those he meets along the way, he reminds us that everyone, even
the most unlikely of people, has a story.

The movie was shot in over 100 locations around India, and also stars Mona Singh as Laal Singh
Chaddha’s beloved mother. Featuring songs including ‘Kahaani’ and ‘Main Ki Karan?,’ ‘Laal Singh
Chaddha’ will be theatrically released only in cinemas around the world on August 11.
