Aamir Khan will co-produce the Hindi adaptation along with Viacom18 Motion Pictures. Aamir has reportedly lost 20 kilos to play the younger version of his titular role of Laal Singh Chaddha. Directed by Advait Chandan of Secret Superstar fame, and written by Atul Kulkarni, the film will feature Aamir's 3 Idiots co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan as his love interest and will release on Christmas 2020. Aamir Khan also recently took to Instagram and shared a poster with his look in the film. In the poster, Aamir Khan can be seen donning a turbaned look with an innocence in his smile.
