Aamir Khan: ‘Forrest Gump’ is getting a Bollywood treatment

The American film Forrest Gump won an Oscar and has been recognized by many as a classic of cinema since its release in 1994.

Now the Indian version, starring film legend Aamir Khan, is due to be shown later this month. Laal Singh Chaddha follows very similar themes to the 1994 film, interweaving key chapters of Indian history.

Mr Khan spoke to BBC’s Matthew Amroliwala and told him how the iconic phrase “life is like a box of chocolates” has been adapted for Indian audiences.
