Director Advait Chandan's Laal Singh Chaddha features Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Atul Kulkarni wrote the screenplay of Forrest Gump. In an interview, Atul revealed that FOrrest Gump is a film that cannot be remade.
Atul Kulkarni told IndiaToday.in, “I don't think there will be comparisons, because right now, people have not seen the film, but the moment people start watching here, they will realise that this is a completely independent film. It is, of course, adapted, which means the screenplay is similar, but it is a completely freshly written film.”
He added, “Forrest Gump is a film which cannot be remade, because it is very specific to the cultural milieu of a particular nation. So, if we are making an Indian film, it must be a completely desi film. It is a film that an entire family can sit together and watch. Once people see it, I'm sure people will know what I'm saying. The delay was because we did not get the rights to make the film from Paramount. So, that was the whole delay. As far as the draft and the script is concerned, it is pretty much the same as what I had written. Of course, we changed and added a few nuances but, whatever was written in the script has been translated into films.”
