To this he said, “It has been a long journey in real, as I wrote it almost 12 years back and it took a few years for Aamir to say yes to this film. Because he didn’t believe that I wrote a good script.” That’s why he didn’t want to hurt me by not doing the film.”
Atul further said, “We used to meet, but he never listened to the script. After a few years he heard the script and within 30 seconds he said that I am going to do this film. For the last 7-8 years we have been working on this film. Were trying for the rights. Because it’s completely based on Forrest Gump. It’s an adaptation of the film. We weren’t getting the rights.
