Actor Aamir Khan is in news again. In a viral video, the popular actor can be seen seated in the economy class of an Indigo aircraft. The actor looks unassuming, seated by the window seat of the aircraft. He is wearing a pale blue cap and has his signature spectacles on. The actor looks around and keeps to himself.

The video has come into focus more so as the Indian airlines industry is hit by the Jet Airways crisis. In the past, Bollywood celebs are known to usually opt for business class.

Speaking about the project, he said: “My next film is finalized. It is called Lal Singh Chaddha. It is being made by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions together. It will be directed by Advait Chandan. It is an adaptation of Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’. We have bought the rights from Paramount... I am playing the lead role of Lal Singh.”

Aamir’s last film, the ambitious Thugs of Hindostan, ranked badly at the box office, despite the presence of big stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh, apart from Aamir. According to a report in Pinkvilla, the actor will unite with his 3 Stars co-star Sharman Joshi for Laal Singh Chaddha. The report says he will have a prominent role in the film.
