Viacom 18 Studios, one of the production companies backing the film, shared the clip on YouTube on Tuesday evening. The video opens with Laal taking his mother’s blessings as the next scene shows he is telling Kareena’s character that his mother wants him to join the Army but he is uncertain as he doesn’t like beating people. A montage then shows Laal’s life at the Army training school where he meets his friend Bala (Naga Chaitanya). At the end, the drill sergeant compliments Laal and calls him a genius, in a scene that mirrors the original, Forrest Gump.
