Kareena Kapoor's latest film Laal Singh Chaddha, co-starring Aamir Khan in the titular role, released on 11 August. Ahead of the film's release, Kareena talked to The Quint about how the Forrest Gump adaptation and her character Rupa were tweaked for an Indian audience.

"We've of course 'Indian-ised' the part a lot because the way we react (to things) is also so different. Atul Kulkarni has kept all that in mind when he's written Rupa's character. She's actually the soul of the film...she's driving the film," Kareena said.

Talking about working with Aamir, Kareena said that every film she's done with the actor has been different.

"This time he was also the producer on the film. I think everyone worked doubly hard. It's been 30 years that I've actually known him and each time I work with him I'm always in awe. He truly is such a brilliant artist and such a brilliant mind."
