Aamir Khan recently opened up about how Laal Singh Chaddha took 14 years to see the light of day in a new podcast he recently launched.

In the first episode of Laal Singh Chaddha Ki Kahaaniyan, which dropped on May 5, the actor talked about the long drawn process of obtaining Forrest Gump’s copyright so he could remake it in Hindi. He also spoke about the movie’s first song ‘Kahani’, which was released on April 28.

“In June-July, the film will complete 14 years, since we started it. It has been quite a journey. First few years, we were running behind the rights of the film,” revealed Aamir.

It is known that Aamir bought the rights to Forrest Gump in early 2018 with the help of LA-based producer and director Radhika Chaudhari. The movie was officially announced on March 14, 2019.

The podcast can be viewed below:

Aside from Aamir and Kareena Kapoor, the cast also includes Naga Chaitanya, Mona Singh, and Manav VJ. Laal Singh Chaddha marks Aamir and Kareena’s onscreen reunion after 2009’s 3 Idiots.

The movie is directed by Advait Chandan from a screenplay originally written by Eric Roth and adapted in Hindi by Atul Kulkarni.

Laal Singh Chaddha is backed by Aamir Khan Productions, Kiran Rao, and Viacom18 Studios. It will be released in cinemas worldwide on August 11, just a few days before the Indian Independence Day.

Meanwhile, Laal Singh Chaddha Ki Kahaaniyan’s debut episode is available on YouTube, Saavn and RedFM.
