Work wise, Khan was last seen in Thugs Of Hindostan. Post the failure of this film, Khan took a supposed sabbatical and started working on Laal Singh Chaddha. The film is the official Hindi remake of Forrest Gump where we will get to see the actor step into the shoes of Tom Hank’s role. The film also reunites Khan with his 3 Idiots’ co-stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh. Laal Singh Chaddha was scheduled to hit the theatres on Christmas last year, but with the current situation, the release date has been shifted indefinitely.
