On his birthday this year, Aamir had shared details of his next project, Lal Singh Chaddha. The actor had been on a hunt for locations in Punjab where he met Punjabi star Gippy Grewal and he gave the Lal Singh Chaddha star a special gift.
Fans of Mr Perfectionist, Aamir Khan have been eagerly awaiting to see him back on screen after the Thugs Of Hindostan fiasco. The Rang De Basanti star had announced his next film, Lal Singh Chaddha on his birthday. Khan also had informed that the film will be an official adaptation of Tom Hanks starrer Forrest Gump and will star Kareena Kapoor Khan with him in the Hindi film. Since then, Aamir has been working on his look. With a huge beard and moustache, Aamir is often seen heading for location recce for Lal Singh Chaddha.
Now, as per a report in Mid-Day, while hunting for locations in Punjab, Aamir met his good friend and Punjabi actor-singer Gippy Grewal. Not just this, Gippy being a fan of Aamir helped him with location hunting in Punjab for Lal Singh Chaddha and also assigned his close friend Rana Ranbir and Ardaas Khan to help with the screenplay of the film as well as with Punjabi dialogues. Amidst this, since Gippy looks up to Aamir and knows he is playing a Sikh in the film, the Punjabi star gifted him a ‘Kada’ (bracelet) as a token of good luck.
As a source quoted to Mid-Day, “Gippy Grewal is an Aamir fan. Whenever the superstar goes to Punjab, Gippy makes sure to meet him. Recently, when the actor went to Punjab for a recce, Gippy joined the film’s crew and helped them zero in on locations. Since he knew that Aamir plays a Sikh in the movie, he gifted the superstar the Guru da Kada as a token of good luck. Aamir was touched by the gesture, and promised the Punjabi singer that he will sport the kada in the film.”
Though Aamir wanted Gippy to assist with the Punjabi dialogues and screenplay, the Punjabi star could not due to his prior commitments. However, he has assigned his best men on the job to help Aamir with the film. Now, that surely is a sweet gesture. Aamir has been recently seen sporting a ‘kada’ in a video he shared on Janmashtami. Lal Singh Chaddha will reportedly be shot in 100 locations and will bring together Kareena and Aamir on screen again after 3 Idiots. Directed by Advait Chandan, Lal Singh Chaddha will release on Christmas 2020.
