Kareena agreed to do the film only because of Aamir. “I wouldn’t have agreed to do this for anyone except Aamir. He is a genius, and he would want to do the best for his film. If he asked me to audition, it is only because he knew I was perfect for the part. But he wanted to be sure of what he was seeing in me. There’s a science to that decision,” she had mentioned, in an interview with Mid-Day.
The film is a remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump, which was based on a 1986’s novel by the same name, written by Winston Groom. Tom Hanks played the lead character alongside Robert Wright and Gary Sinise.
