Aamir Khan: Forrest Gump gets the Bollywood treatment

The American film Forrest Gump won the Oscars and has been hailed by many as a cinematic classic since its release in 1994.

Now, an Indian version featuring movie legend Aamir Khan is set to air later this month. Laal Singh Chaddha follows very similar themes to the 1994 film, traversing key chapters in India’s history.

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