Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan recently shot for their upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha in Punjab here. The actors, who have previously worked in films Talaash and 3 Idiots, were in Rupnagar from November 12 to November 22 to film the project. An official remake of Tom Hanks' 1994 feature Forrest Gump, the film is being directed by Advait Chandan.
Aamir and Kareena had earlier filmed some portions in Chandigarh before heading to Rupnagar. The film here was shot on the right bank of river Sutlej at Garh Bagha village on Rupnagar-Nurpurbedi road, about 4km from the main city. During the shooting of the film, Aamir took some time off to pay obeisance at Gurudwara Bhatta Sahib here, which is associated with 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh.
Aamir, who was dressed in a off-white shirt, a saffron turban and had a free flowing beard, was honoured with a siropa (robe of honour) by the gurudwara authorities, an official said on Saturday. The actor released the first look of the film on Monday, introducing him as the titular character.
Laal Singh Chaddha is slated to hit the screens on Christmas 2020.
