Known to get into the skin of the characters he plays on- screen , versatile actor Aamir Khan has shared his first look from the much-awaited film “Laal Singh Chaddha”.
An official remake of Tom Hanks’ 1994 feature “Forrest Gump”, the film is being directed by Advait Chandan. Kareena Kapoor Khan is playing the female lead.
Aamir took to social media to post the first look poster from the film that introduces him as the titular character.
The actor, who seems to be sitting in a train compartment, sports an innocent smile as he looks at the camera. He is donning a light pink turban and has a thick beard with a handlebar moustache.

The video contained a brief song with the lyrics, “Kya pata hum mein hain kahani, ya hain kahani mein hum.”
