Adapted by Atul Kulkarni and directed by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha is an official Hindi remake of Robert Zemeckis’ 1994 Oscar-winning film Forrest Gump, which starred Hollywood star Tom Hanks. Laal Singh Chaddha is said to be unfolding some of the historical events in India through the eyes of a man.
During a recent interview with India.com, when Sargun was asked about Aamir’s accent in Laal Singh Chaddha, she said, “If Aamir Khan would have said in pure Punjabi, no one could have understood. If the superstar then makes a Bengali movie and uses too many Bengali words, we won’t be able to understand it.”
Sargun added: “Aamir sir is not Punjabi and he has taken on a role. Actors are supposed to take on versatile roles. I can say he could have done a little better but jitna bhi unhone kia hain bahot kaam and mehnat lagti hain sirf utna karne mein bhi (Whatever he did in the movie, it takes a lot to get the results. He’s worked really hard).”
Last year Sargun shared on her Instagram account that she has started shooting Mission Cinderella in the UK. In addition to Sargun, Akshay Kumar, Rakul Preet Singh and Chandrachur Singh will also star in the film. Mission Cinderella is an official remake of the critically acclaimed Tamil film Ratsasan.
