The movie will be directed by Advait Chandan, the director of Secret Superstar and will be titled as Lal Singh Chaddha. Said Aamir, “Uska naam hai Lal Singh Chaddha.

When asked on being compared to Tom Hanks, he said, “I don't see much similarity but all say we look similar..maybe our eyes and energy level is similar. I have been trying to get the rights of Forest Gump adaptation for 8 years.” Furthermore, he said, “We are still on a recce for it, but it will be in India, Punjab, all the North side.” Forrest Gump is based on a 1986 novel that starred Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson and Saly Field.
