The eagerly anticipated movie Laal Singh Chaddha has finally been screened in theatres. It is the official remake of the 1994 Hollywood blockbuster Forrest Gump. The Tom Hanks-starring film explored various significant historical occurrences in America. He used Indian prime ministers instead. He also delivered a great tribute to Narendra Modi when he came to him.
 
At the beginning of Laal Singh Chaddha, the main character begins running throughout India. He is seen running in a setting at what appears to be the Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, ghats. Narendra Modi's image and the phrase 'Ab Ki Baar, Modi Sarkar' are painted on the wall just behind him. In the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections, this catchphrase was utilized to help elect Modi. It quickly caught on. In the same year, Narendra Modi was elected prime minister.
 
Lal Krishna Advani is another leader of this group who is depicted. When the seasoned leader had embarked on a Rath Yatra in Delhi in the early 1990s, Laal Singh Chaddha encountered him.
 
In the second half, Lal Krishna Advani is once more seen sitting in the Rashtrapati Bhavan as Laal Singh Chaddha is honoured for saving troops' lives during the 1999 Kargil War.
 
After assuming power, Narendra Modi launched the 'Swacch Bharat' campaign to educate the populace about cleanliness. This campaign also receives attention in a scene.
 
Indira Gandhi is another Prime Minister who is referenced and has a significant role in the movie. In a photo taken in October 1984, Laal and his family are seen posing in front of her home while hearing gunshots. There is an implication that she was murdered when those rounds were fired. It causes rioting in Delhi and triggers a pivotal story point.
