Aamir Khan has rolled up his sleeves and getting ready for the official Hindi adaptation of Oscar-winning Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump‘. The actor revealed that he has to lose about 20 kgs to fit into the character, at an event.

At the event, he said, “I play a young man in the movie, so I need to lose 20 kilos. I have already lost three and a half kilos in two weeks under the guidance of Dr. Dhurandhar.”

Announcing the film on his 54th birthday, Aamir said, “Uska Naam hai Lal Singh Chaddha. (Name of the film will be ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’) It’s being made by Viacom and Aamir Khan Productions together. Iske director honge Advait Chandan, jinhone banayi thi Secret Superstar (Advait Chandan will direct the movie, who also directed ‘Secret Superstar’). Ek angrezi film ayi thi, Hollywood film, Forrest Gump, uska adaptation hai,(It is the adaptation of Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’) we have bought the rights from Paramount.” He said that the movie will be set in Punjab and in the North.

Atul Kulkarni penned down the script of the film when Aamir Khan casually told him that ‘Forrest Gump’ had left a lasting mark on him. The duo was busy shooting for the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorial when they had a small talk about the Hollywood film. Atul wrote its Hindi adaptation with screenplay and dialogue, within a fortnight.

Aamir said, “During the shoot, he had shared that the Forrest Gump is one of his favorite movies. Atul approached me with adaptation script later on but I did not take him seriously. I read the script after 2 and a half years and loved it. After that, I went behind taking the right of the movie.”
