At the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, Vijay Sethupathi had revealed that he was in talks with Aamir Khan for a film. At the teaser launch of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, he repeated the same, though he did not mention much detail about the film.
While speculations are rife that he has been approached for Laal Singh Chaddha, there is still no official confirmation on this from any quarter. Assuming that Vijay does come on board the film, which is the remake of the Tom Hanks starrer Forrest Gump, the role that he would be offered is said to be that of Bubba, who was Forrest’s close friend.
If you have watched Forrest Gump, you know that Bubba and Forrest become friends in the army where Bubba teaches him everything that is to know about shrimps. The character is definitely up Vijay’s alley. It is heard that the character may be a Tamil-speaking person, given that Vijay will be playing it.
While we await more details on this, do let us know what you think about this casting in the comments section below.
