Laal Singh Chaddha is one of the most anticipated films of 2020, ever since the announcement. The shooting had already begun for Laal Singh Chaddha and pictures of Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor are making the rounds on the internet.

After completing the 4th schedule of the film in Amritsar on March 17, makers decided to call off the shoots after cine bodies decided to suspend all shoots. The film slightly went off-schedule due to the spread of coronavirus and it is likely to be postponed from its original release date - Christmas 2020 due to the on-going crisis.

A Mid-day report suggested that Laal Singh Chaddha’s shoot is yet to be concluded, it might not make it to cinemas for Christmas. Yes, you heard that right!

The report also quoted a source saying; “The unit was to head to Chandigarh for another round of filming. The shoot was moving like clockwork, and Aamir was hoping to release the first teaser around Diwali. However, the lockdown has put the brakes on his plans. Even if the shoots resume by August or September, it is unlikely that the movie will hit screens by December. It may target April 2021 for release."

The source even spoke about the film and added, “Besides presenting Aamir as a 20-something who grows older as the narrative progresses, the film will also depict events like the Babri Masjid demolition and the Kargil war. It won't be easy to complete such intricate VFX work in a short time.”

For the uninitiated, Laal Singh Chaddha is an official Hindi adaptation of Tom Hanks's Forrest Gump (1994).

After 3 Idiots, we will get to see the pair of Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor once again in the film along with South superstar Vijay Setupathi, who will be seen in an important role in the film.

Written by Atul Kulkarni, the film is helmed by Advait Chandan and will be produced by Viacom18 Studios and Aamir Khan Productions. The movie is slated to hit the theatres during Christmas 2020, next year.

Default Star Cast of Laal Singh Chaddha


Aamir is no doubt one of the most dedicated actors in this world. With his recent success in India and China markets combined he has got the title of World's Biggest Superstar. He went through rapid transformations in his body structure for his films to bring out the reality factor in his characters. This is also one of the reasons why his films and he is loved all over the world. His most visible changes include the movies like Ghajini, 3 idiots, Talaash, Dhoom 3, PK and Dangal. With his recent successful movies like Dangal, Pk , Talaash and TV serial Satyamev jayate, his image has become more of a serious actor. However, the truth is that he is a fabulous actor when it comes to comedy too. He has played some really funny iconic characters in some cult comedy movies like Andaaz Apna Apna, Ishq, Mela, Dil chahta hai and many more. He has also done a lot of TVC where his character was funny like Coca Cola, Tata Sky and Snapdeal.

Aamir khan is said to open Chinese market for Indian Films. Lagaan in 2001 released in china nationwide. 3 idiots became a cult hit in china. After 3 idiots becoming a big hit, his other movies like Taare zameen par and Ghajini also went on to gain huge fan following. Aamir Khan's next big movies like Dhoom 3 (2013), PK (2014) and Dangal (2016) also became successful on chinese box office. His recent movie Secret superstar (2017) became a huge hit too in China.

Aamir was first introduced as a child artiste in the 1970's hit Procession of Memories (1973) - he was the youngest child in the trio.

His performance in Earth (1998) as the Ice-Candy man has received rave reviews from Indian and international critics. Using classic "method acting" and an adopted technique inspired by his seniors Sanjeev Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand and Shammi Kapoor, Aamir acts in all genres of Indian films - comedy, action, drama and romance. He is regarded as a complete Indian actor of the post 1990 generation of actors for his diverse choice of roles and films. In 2007 he turned director with the film Taare Zameen Par (2007), which not only brought him immense critical acclaim but was also a huge box office success. Many of his films are considered as cult classics like Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India (2001), Dil Chahta Hai (2001), Rang De Basanti (2006), He Who Wins Is King (1992) and Andaz Apna Apna (1994). He divorced his first wife in December 2001 and married Kiran Rao in December 2005.

In 2008 his first all out commercial action film Ghajini (2008) went on to become the highest grossing film of its time in Indian Cinema and 4th highest inflation adjusted, grossing a total of Rs.226 on the worldwide box office and the first film to cross 100 crores on the domestic Indian box office, making a total of Rs.115 crores. This record didn't last long, though, since his next release 3 Idiots (2009) went on to shatter not only the highest grosser record but many more. It not only made the highest opening first day, first weekend and first week records but subsequently continued to shatter many records on the following weekends and weeks, making many circuits on the way. It made a total of Rs.202 crores domestically and Rs.400 crores on the worldwide box office, becoming the highest overseas grosser to date, a staggering feat given that no other film had even come close to making Rs.100 crores on the domestic box office until then, except for his own Ghajini (2008) the previous year.

Aamir is said to be the actor who first started the trend of actors working in one film at a time, when the others worked in four or five at the same time. He is also known to shun popular film trade magazine awards like Filmfare, Star Screen, etc. as he doesn't have trust in their credibility and transparency. Recently he was awarded the third highest civilian honor Padama Bhushan by the government of India.

Aamir Khan's range of characterizations remains unparalleled and because of this diversity, and his ability to portray different characters believably on screen, today he is regarded as not only one of the biggest Superstars but also one of the finest actors of Indian Cinema.

Default Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan will soon resume Laal Singh Chaddha shoot in Mumbai amid coronavirus crisis!

Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are ready to shoot for their upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha. The team will be shooting at Film City in Goregaon and Vrundavan Studios in Malad post the approval for work from the government...



The nationwide Coronavirus lockdown stalled the shoot of many upcoming films and the entire Bollywood industry was at a loss. While the industry gradually tries to revive itself from the four-month slumber, several actors have taken up the baton and started off the shooting for the upcoming projects.

Meanwhile, a recent Mid-Day report has stated that Aamir Khan is ready to shoot for his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha. The actor along with the film’s leading lady Kareena Kapoor Khan will resume the shoot in Mumbai from September 7.

The report also suggested that last month the unit swiftly began constructing two sets at Film City in Goregaon and Vrundavan Studios in Malad post the approval for work from the government. Kareena Kapoor Khan, who plays Khan's love interest in the official adaptation of Forrest Gump (1994), will join the actor during the Film City leg.

"Aamir is certain that he wants to begin with indoor shoots. A set of a house has been erected at the Goregaon studio, where the two actors will shoot their joint scenes. Post that, Aamir will move on to Vrundavan Studios where a huge set of military hospitals is being constructed. This leg is crucial to the narrative as the unit will shoot the portions where his character Laal Singh Chaddha is seen returning from the war," reveals a source quoted by the Mid-Day report.

"As the producer, Aamir feels responsible for the safety of his crew, and hence, has appointed a special team that will monitor the safety measures being adopted on the set. The cast and crew will undergo COVID test every week, apart from the daily temperature and oximeter checks. Considering Kareena is pregnant, Aamir Khan has instructed Advait that only a skeletal crew be present on set when she is scheduled to shoot," the source added.

Previously, the upcoming film’s Ladakh shooting schedule was called off amid the rising tensions between India and China. Earlier, the shoot was put on hold due to the coronavirus scare. After 3 Idiots, fans will get to see the pair of Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor once again in the film along with South superstar Vijay Setupathi, who will be seen in an important role in the film. Written by Atul Kulkarni, the film is helmed by Advait Chandan and will be produced by Viacom18 Studios and Aamir Khan Productions, and the Advait Chandan directorial was deferred to Christmas 2021.
