Previously, Atul Kulkarni, who penned the script for Aamir Khan starrer, spoke about the process began for adapting the Hollywood classic Forrest Gump. Talking to news agency PTI, he said, “I wrote the script for Aamir. It all began about 13-14 years ago. I’m happy and fortunate enough that it turned out well. Aamir liked it and decided to do it. We were talking about the films we like, that’s when Forrest Gump came up. The next day I was supposed to travel somewhere for my shoot but it got cancelled. So, I had 10-15 days on my hands and Forrest Gump was on my mind. I had not seen this film in a long time, so I thought I should watch it again.”
