Recently, on Koffee With Karan 7, Aamir talked about what inspired him to do a remake of classic Hollywood film like Forrest Gump. He said that around 14 years ago, Atul Kulkarni asked him, ‘What is your favourite film?’, and he replied ‘Forrest Gump’ is one of them. Two weeks later, Atul called Aamir and said, ‘I have written a screenplay for you’ which was an adaptation of Forest Gump. After two years, when Atul narrated the script, Aamir fell in love with it.
