Laal Singh Chaddha might be one of the riskiest Hollywood films ever attempted to be remade in India. The Tom Hanks-starrer Forrest Gump (1994), which is the inspiration behind Laal Singh Chaddha, is known for simple yet terrific storytelling and an official first look poster of Aamir Khan from the Bollywood remake was revealed on Monday.
There were leaked pics from the sets of the Advait Chandan directorial earlier in the week that had Aamir Khan wearing a turban and thick beard and the official first look poster is along the same line. Aamir's look is simple as his eyes shimmer with hope and affection. He seems to be sitting inside a train. The film also features Kareena Kapoor in the lead role opposite Aamir as they both reunite after the mega successful 3 Idiots (2009).
Check out the first look poster of Aamir Khan from Laal Singh Chaddha below:
