Aamir Khan: Aamir Khan is in the news for his film ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’. Actor Aamir Khan was working on this film for a long time. After giving this project many years, ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ was released. The film has often been described as a true blue American story. As much as it is the story of a man, it is also a journey of the country. In this it seems unusual to adapt it to another country. But this is what Atul Kulkarni has done. The writer of this film is Atul Kulkarni and the hero is Aamir Khan.
Reminiscences from Forrest Gump
Atul told that he spoke to Aamir Khan about the difficult task of adopting Forrest Gump and he refused to read the script for two whole years. Kulkarni explains that there was a premiere after which we went to Aamir’s house and during the dinner chat the topic of favorite movies came up, we both mentioned Forrest Gump. I had to go the next day for an outdoor shoot for 10-15 days which got cancelled. I watched the Forrest Gump DVD at my home and it came fresh in my mind.
Atul told that at that time I had free time. So I decided to watch it. After some time I thought if this incident happened in India then when would it start and I started taking notes. During 1 hour of the film I said why not try a script. After 10 days of writing the script of this film realized that the scripts are complete. I prepared the second draft in the next three-four days. It all started with a discussion between the two actors.

script not read for 2 years
He approached Aamir Khan as soon as Atul’s script was completed. But the actor did not give him time to study. Aamir Khan didn’t read the script for the first 2 years. After 2 years, when Aamir Khan was asked, he answered immediately. He said you are not a writer and you tell me you wrote an adaptation of Forrest Gump in 15 days. You are a close friend and I don’t want to disappoint you by saying that you write poorly so are not listening to the script.

Produced film with acting
After this, when Aamir Khan read the script, he agreed to act in it. Along with acting, Aamir Khan also decided to produce the film. Now Aamir’s look as Lal in this film has been the subject of much discussion. The long beard and the traditional Sikh turban are shown as an Indian tradition. The role of a Sikh character was to be played in this film. But I wrote all the dialogues in Hindi. Aamir felt that he should speak in Punjabi. So my dialogues were translated into Punjabi.
