Indian superstar Amir Khan will be playing a Sikh in his fifties in Laal Singh Chaddha. In the first poster of the film, the actor is dressed in a checkered shirt and a pink turban. He sits inside a train compartment, as a flickering smile peeps through his lush beard and moustache.
Amir Khan shared the first look of Laal Singh Chaddha on social media recently. “Sat Sri Akaal ji, myself Laal... Laal Singh Chaddha,” he wrote in the caption.
The film, an official Hindi adaptation of Hollywood star Tom Hanks’ 1994 hit, Forrest Gump, is being directed by Advait Chandan, with Kareena Kapoor as the female protagonist.
Amir Khan and Kareena Kapoor were last seen together in the box-office hit, 3 Idiots, directed by Rajkumar Hirani.
Earlier, Amir Khan shared a short video clip that revealed the forthcoming film’s logo. The video contained a brief song with the lyrics, Kya pata hum mein hain kahani, ya hain kahani mein hum.
Laal Singh Chaddha was announced by Amir Khan on his birthday in March this year.
The film, a joint production of Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions, is set to hit theatres next year, during Christmas.
