SGPC approves the depiction of Sardar character in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’

Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha is good to go for release. The movie, an official adaptation of Forrest Gump, sees Aamir portray a Sikh character for the first time in his career. While Aamir’s bearded and turbaned look in the movie has made buzz among the fans, it has also won the approval of Sikh religious body Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).

The movie, especially Laal’s life growing up, is set in Punjab. As of late, the producers held a special screening of the movie for the SGPC. Speaking about how they received the movie, Aamir Khan, who is likewise producing the movie, says, “I was very touched with the reaction of the members of the SGPC. I am so glad that our film touched their hearts so deeply.”

According to the sources from the production, “As the film is based in Punjab and Aamir Khan is playing the character of a Sikh, the makers wanted to get every single detail right and now that the film is ready, they screened it for the members of SGPC who loved the film.” The producers inform that they had already showed the movie’s script to the members from the SGPC prior to starting the shoot “they wanted to get every single nuance correct “. Laal Singh Chaddha, like the Hollywood original, accounts the journey of the protagonist during the major historical occasions that shaped India.
