LOS ANGELES, CA (ANI) – Despite low box-office collection so far, Aamir Khan’s latest release ‘Laal Singh Chaddha‘, which is the official remake of ‘Forrest Gump,’ has managed to win appreciation from many — including the Academy.
The official Twitter page of the Academy shared a video featuring a compilation of scenes from ‘Forrest Gump’ and ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ and hailed ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ as a “faithful adaptation’ of ‘Forest Gump’.
“Robert Zemeckis and Eric Roth’s sweeping story of a man who changes the world with kindness receives a faithful Indian adaptation in Advait Chandan and Atul Kulkarni’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ feat. Aamir Khan in the role made famous by Tom Hanks,” the tweet read.
Reacting to the post by The Academy, co-producer Ajit Andhare of Viacom18 Studios tweeted, “Finding a piece of academy & history through an Indian adaptation is a proud milestone.”
