A few days back, Aamir and Kareena’s look from Laal Singh Chaddha was leaked on social media. Aamir looked unrecognizable in a pink turban and sporting a long beard.

Kareena was also seen wearing a pink kurta with white pyjama and a dupatta.

Directed by Advait Chandan and written by Atul Kulkarni, Laal Singh Chaddha is a remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump.

Speaking about starring in remakes, Aamir had said that he does not have a problem with it. “I say yes to a script whenever it excites me. I have done remakes in the past too. It Happened One Night was remade into Dil Hai KI Maanta Nahi and Tamil film Ghajini was remade as Ghajini in Hindi. However, most of the time I work on original scripts,” Aamir told Hindustan Times.

He also said that the character of Laal Singh Chaddha will connect well with the audience. “The character is very innocent. He has a different way of looking at things and you will definitely empathize with Laal Singh Chaddha,” he added.

When asked about whether it’s a challenge portraying the character when he is above 50 (Tom Hanks was 28 when he acted in Forrest Gump), Aamir said that each running shot in the original film is around 30 seconds, so that isn’t a problem at all.
