Aamir Khan Confirms Shah Rukh Khan’s Appearance in Laal Singh Chaddha; Here is what he said

Aamir Khan has officially revealed that Shah Rukh Khan will be making an appearance in his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha. Aamir explained in a new interview how he persuaded Shah Rukh to be part of the film. However, Aamir did not indicate what role Shah Rukh will play.

Aamir portrays the main character of Laal Singh Chaddha. The story follows Laal (Aamir) as he pursues his aspirations and his love. The film, directed by Advait Chandan, also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya.

When asked how he convinced Shah Rukh to make an appearance, Aamir told Canadian journalist Alexandra: “Well, Shah Rukh is a pal, and I told him that I wanted someone who could symbolize what Elvis (Presley) meant in America.” I need the most famous celebrity in India, that’s why I’m going to you (laughs). He was quite nice and replied, “Yes”.

So far, Shah Rukh and Laal Singh Chaddha’s team, which includes Aamir, have not commented on his involvement in the film. Shah Rukh Khan hosted an Ask Me Anything event on Twitter earlier this year. “Laal Singh Chaddha dekhi (Have you watched Laal Singh Chaddha)?” asked a fan. He had said, “Aamir asks, ‘First, show me Pathaan!’ #Pathaan”

The official Hindi version of Forrest Gump by Tom Hanks from the 1994 Hollywood film Forrest Gump is titled Laal Singh Chaddha. The film, backed by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions, is set to release on August 11 in countries.
