Bollywood often has remade movies from other languages, especially Hollywood. However, rarely that seemed to have worked out. Aamir Khan reportedly seems to prepare for another Hollywood remake of Forest Gump, the Hindi version of which will be called Laal Singh Chaddha.
Aamir Khan was last seen in Thugs of Hindostan which also starred Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The concept was allegedly inspired from popular Hollywood franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean. Although neither the producers or the cast have confirmed these rumours, netizens found quite a lot of similarities between the two movies, especially with Aamir Khan’s character. Notwithstanding these rumours, however, the movie was a major box office flop. While its budget was approximately 300 crores, the movie only made a little more than 100 crores at the box office.
