Laal Singh Chaddha is the Hindi remake of the globally acclaimed Tom Hanks starrer Forrest Gump. Chaitanya’s participation in the film was motivated by his respect for Aamir Khan rather than a desire to aggressively pursue a Bollywood career. He believes that audiences today are open to good content, regardless of the language, and noted that many Telugu films, including some of his own, have been dubbed in Hindi and appreciated by Hindi-speaking audiences. Chaitanya believes that quality content will always find its audience.
