The trailer of Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, was unveiled on May 29.
The film, produced by Aamir Khan productions, is the Hindi remake of Forrest Gump -- the classic Hollywood movie starring Tom Hanks. Hanks plays the titular character of Forrest Gump -- a slow witted and gentle man who inspires those around him with his undying optimism while navigating major socio-political events of the 60s and 70s.
Laal Singh Chaddha, which also stars Mona Singh and Chaitanya Akkineni, has been directed by Advait Chandan. It will be out in cinemas on August 11.
