Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan started shooting for their much-awaited film Laal Singh Chaddha last year in November. The film was decided to release this year in December, but due to ongoing pandemic, the makers were unable to wrap-up the shoot. We recently reported that the unit had two major schedules left pending in Ladakh and Delhi when the coronavirus led lockdown brought its shoot to a halt in March. Later, the makers of the film decided to cancel the Ladakh schedule due to the India-China military standoff at Galwan valley. Now, according to reports, news of the makers travelling to Turkey and Georgia to shoot the pending schedules have emerged.
According to a report by The Times Of India, a source said—
Advait Chandan (director) and Aamir waited it out for quite some time, but it’s more than four months now since Coronavirus invaded and the number of cases is still spiking. How long can you go on waiting for a big canvas film like ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’? So, they have planned for Georgia and Turkey.
The source further added—
It now remains to be seen when the final wrap up will be possible. The movie is working out very well and keeping the flow in mind, it is imperative that the balance part is rolled out ASAP.
Helmed by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha is the Hindi remake of Tom Hanks‘ Forrest Gump which released in 1994. The film is being produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.
