Aamir's move has come as a surprise as many in the industry were hoping that he might do a film with Aditya Chopra, Rajkumar Santoshi or Karan Johar. But, Aamir has finally preferred to do Reema Kagti's film instead.

Last time Aamir, Farhan and Ritesh created a film together, (DIL CHAHTA HAI) which became a cult film for gen next Indians.
An elated Aamir Khan says, "I found this script written by Reema and Zoya really exciting and I am looking forward to working with Ritesh and Farhan once again."
Says Farhan Akhtar, 'It feels great to be collaborating with Aamir a decade after DIL CHAHTA HAI. We had been hoping do a film together since then and I'm thrilled that it is finally happening with this script.'
Adds Ritesh Sidhwani, 'I have been waiting to work with Aamir since DIL CHAHTA HAI and it's finally happening. It's special this time as we are also producing it together, can't wait to start filming!'
