Aamir Khan to shoot remake of ‘Forrest Gump’ in Turkey
Bollywood film star Aamir Khan has set his foot in Turkey to restart shooting of his film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ – an official remake of Tom Hanks starrer ‘Forrest Gump’, as India has not yet lifted ban on shooting movies because of pandemic situation.

Half of the film has already been shot in Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Kolkata, Chandigarh and Kerala, until Feb 12, 2020.
Aamir Khan had made announcement about the film on his last birthday in 2019, which was slated to release on Christmas 2020. He has come to Turkey on initiation of the Culture and Tourism Ministry to promote his flick Superstar (2017).
