Aamir Khan; Bollywood's bonafide Mr. Perfectionist, deliver one of the biggest flops of his career in Thugs of Hindostan last year. But now; the actor who turned 54 yesterday, announced his next film to the press during his interaction with them while cutting his birthday cake!


Aamir revealed," My next film is finalized it is called Laal Singh Chaddha. It is being made by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions together. It will be directed by Advait Chandan. It is an adaptation of Hollywood film 'Forrest Gump'. We have bought the rights from Paramount... I am playing the lead role of Lal Singh."


He further revealed," I have always loved Forrest Gump as a script. It is a wonderful story about this character. It is a life-affirming story. It is a feel-good film. It is a film for the whole family."


For the uninitiated; 'Forrest Gump', directed by Robert Zemeckis, released in 1994 and is considered to be a timeless classic which went on to win 6 Oscar awards including the Oscar for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor for Tom Hanks!


Forrest Gump' was a book adaption of Winston Groom's 1986 novel by the same name. The book takes you through the journey of a dim-witted man whose life mirrors some of the most important events of the 20th Century America.


Revealing further details; the PK actor said," We have started the prep work on the film. The shoot will start from October. I will be prepping for six months. I have to lose weight. I will be losing 20 kgs. I have to be lean and slim."


Though a remake to such a timeless classic will be no cake way, we certainly can trust Mr. Perfectionist to ace the character and do justice to the film. Aamir also revealed that he will be seen sporting a turban for some parts of the film!


Well well well....we certainly can't keep calm!
