The Aamir Khan starrer is the official Hindi adaptation of the 1994 Oscar-winning Hollywood comedy-drama ‘Forrest Gump’. The ace actor got the rights of Forrest Gump from the foreign studio, Paramount Pictures.
Reportedly, Khan will play a Sikh in the film and for his role, he had to lose 20 kgs. At an event, he had said, “I play a young man in the movie, so I need to lose 20 kilos. I have already lost three and a half kilos in two weeks under the guidance of Dr. Dhurandhar.”
Atul Kulkarni wrote the script within a fortnight when Aamir casually told him that ‘Forrest Gump’ had left a lasting mark on him. Old friends Atul and Aamir were busy shooting for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorial Rang De Basanti when they talked about this film.
