Tom Hank’s Forrest Gump an Oscar award winning film sure still lives. The film is known to be one of the best of Hank’s as he plays the role of protagonist. It is a 1994 blockbuster film with amazing acting and direction. Bollywood star Aamir Khan according to Pinkvilla has got the rights to Robert Zemeckis masterpiece.
PK star failed to impress tha audience with his latest film Thugs of Hindustan however it did break and set new box office records. According to the reports Khan is ready to make a long awaited sequel of Forest Gump and he is currently in talks with Secret Superstar director Advait Chandan on this project.
Aamir has currently set aside his ongoing projects including Mahabharata and Mogul focusing on this particular sequel. In past Khan has played a somewhat similar role in his hit film PK so it might not be that big of a challenge for the actor as he is known to be a perfectionist.
The superstar’s last release, Thugs Of Hindostan failed to impress audiences, also opening to not so favourable reviews. However, it still excelled at the box office.
The report further adds that Aamir, who was supposed to begin work on Mahabharata and Mogul, has kept these projects aside. His main focus now remains the Forrest Grump remake.
As Aamir reportedly gears up for one of the most challenging roles of his career, his performance in Rajkumar Hirani’s PK seems eerily similar to Tom’s character in the Academy-winning film. So, this might just work out well for him.
Forrest Gump starred Tom as the protagonist alongside Robert Wright and Gary Sinise. The film was based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Winston Groom, that revolved around several decades in the life of its character (Hanks), a simpleton from Albama.
The film emerged as one of the biggest flicks of 1994. It went on to win the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Visual Effects and Best Film Editing. Hanks also bagged the accolade for Best Actor. It also earner many other awards and nominations including Golden Globes, People’s Choice Awards, and Young Artist Awards.
