Aamir Khan recalls avoiding Laal Singh Chaddha script for two years

Tom Hanks starrer Academy Award winning film 'Forrest Gump' is often called one of the greatest movies of all time and this is the reason why it came as a surprise when Aamir Khan decided to remake it in Bollywood. However, in a recent promotional interview, Aamir revealed that initially he was reluctant to even listen to the script but eventually he ended up producing the project.

Talking about writer Atul Kulkarni in a recent interview with Cinestan, Aamir said, "Yes. I was a little worried because he had written his first script. He hadn’t written a script before. He asked me to listen to it very enthusiastically. I felt if I listen and don’t like, he would feel bad. Also, a film like Forrest Gump, which is such a cult classic, is very difficult to imagine to adapt into another film. That’s why I didn’t listen to his script for two years."

The actor further added, "I was like, 'How dare you make me read Forrest Gump?' You can’t even think of making Forrest Gump again. It’s like making Mughal-a-Azam and Mother India again. I felt why should I waste my time listening to something I don’t want to make? But when I heard it, I was blown. I felt, yes, he has done it. It was a very moving experience for me. The moment I heard it, I said I want to do this."

Directed by Advait Chauhan, 'Laal Singh Chaddha' is set to release theatrically on 11th of August.
