Aamir Khan is all set to play a character named Laal Singh Chaddha in the movie of the same name. Laal Singh Chaddha movie is an official remake of the 1994 Hollywood classic Forrest Gump.
The Indian version of the Hollywood adaptation was written by Atul Kulkarni. Aamir Khan plays the title role of Laal Singh Chaddha. Here’s looking at whether Laal Singh Chaddha, a Sikh guy whose life takes multiple twists and turns, was a real person or is just a fictional character.
Who Was Laal Singh Chaddha?
With Aamir Khan playing the title role of Laal Singh Chaddha, there was a very high chance that the character played could very well be real-life based. Mr. Perfectionist might have researched very well to make sure the character is real-life based and the audience’s emotions are very well connected. Aamir Khan in the past has played the character of Phunsukh Wangdu in 3 Idiots, a real-life character based on Sonam Wanghchuk.
Laal Singh Chaddha’s character is not real-life based. Laal Singh Chaddha is just another fictional character. There may be many ordinary people named Laal Singh Chaddha, but there has never been a known or famous personality or public figure that goes by the name Laal Singh Chaddha who has served the Indian army and received a medal of honor as shown in the movie.
Both Laal Singh Chaddha and Forrest Gump are not real-life individuals.
Was Laal Singh Chaddha a Real Person or Real Character?
The events shown in the movie such as Laal Singh Chaddha fighting the war and rescuing people and ultimately winning a medal are all fictional ones. There has been no such case of a person named Laal Singh Chaddha fighting and rescuing people in war and winning a medal from the President. So we conclude that Laal Singh Chaddha, played by Aamir Khan was not a real person as shown in the movie.
