Forrest Gump tells the story of a man (Tom Hanks) who does extraordinary things in his life. However, his only aim is to be with his childhood love Jenny.
In Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir Khan will be seen sharing screen space with his 3 Idiots co-stars Kareena Kapoor and Mona Singh. It is also the Bollywood debut of Naga Chaitanya.
Kareena Kapoor will play Roopa in Laal Singh Chaddha. The actress recently mentioned that she had to go for a look test for the first time in her career for this film. “It wasn’t arrogance, just that I had never done it before, so I was nervous. And when I told Saif, he said I think it’s really cool. You should do it. And I said What exactly is that! What will happen? He’ll say it didn’t work. So, that’s fine. I said it’s Aamir. And if I did. It would be for Aamir. So, I said listen whatever Well, I’m going to take the plunge and have fun with it,” she said.
