Kareena Kapoor Khan says working in Laal Singh Chaddha was a memorable experience as the film reunites her with one of her most loved co-stars, Aamir Khan.

Laal Singh Chaddha, the official remake of Tom Hanks’ Hollywood blockbuster Forrest Gump, marks the third collaboration of the two Bollywood stars after 3 Idiots (2009) and Talaash (2012).

Kareena said that everyone in the team, especially Aamir, has gone through a lot in the last two years during the making of the film.

“I am extremely excited to have Aamir and I come together after 3 Idiots and Talaash. It is very special and we have worked very hard. Especially Aamir, he has done a lot. It’s a great script and I hope so. That’s how it will come on screen and everyone is going to love it.”

Advait Chandan, who made his directorial debut with the 2017 musical drama Secret Superstar produced by Aamir, has directed the film.

Actor-writer Atul Kulkarni shares screenplay credit for the film with Eric Roth, who adapted the 1986 Winston Groom novel of the same name for Hanks’ 1994 film.

Laal Singh Chaddha is supported by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios and Paramount Pictures.

The team wrapped up the shooting of the film last month and for Kareena, shooting amid the coronavirus pandemic was a new and fulfilling experience.

“We finished our part during the Covid wave in Delhi. This was the first time I went on a set amid the pandemic and we followed all the protocols.

“It made me believe that I can do really well while shooting films with fewer people,” the actress said. She said that she was five months pregnant with her second child, Jeh, when she shot her major part for the film.

Kareena, who recently walked the ramp at the Lakme Absolute Grand Finale of the FDCI X Lakme Fashion Week ‘Physical’ edition, feels it is more productive to work with fewer people on the sets.

“It is better to work with fewer people because when there are fewer people one can concentrate more. It is better than having 200 people around when they are not really needed at that time. Working hours have also become stricter now,” she said.

Laal Singh Chaddha is slated to release on Valentines Day next year. The film, starring Naga Chaitanya and Mona Singh, was originally slated for a Christmas 2021 premiere.
