An official adaptation of Hollywood star Tom Hanks' 1994 movie "Forrest Gump", the film went on floors last year and was shot across 100 locations in the country.

According to the makers, the shoot of the film recently wrapped up in the city, with the cast and crew celebrating the moment on its set.

"Laal Singh Chaddha" has been helmed by Advait Chandan, who made his directorial debut with the 2017 musical drama "Secret Superstar", starring Aamir Khan and Zaira Wasim.
