Addressing his fans in the clip, Aamir can be heard saying, "Forrest Gump begins with a feather, the feather comes floating down from the sky and it goes over people’s shoulders and drives over a car, the wind kind of pushes it here and there. Advait Chandan, the director of this film, and I often joke that after taking on this film, our lives have become like a feather — different winds are pushing us in different directions, and we are just kind of flowing with it and we are just going to figure out where we land up by the end of the film.”

Aamir and Kareena are said to be good friends, both on and off-screen. The former even shed light on working with Bebo in Laal Singh Chaddha. He quipped, "While the rest of the world was dealing with Corona, we were dealing with Corona and Kareena, who was the heroine of the film. She got pregnant, another complication, so we were like one more gust of wind has pushed us in another direction.”

Aamir shared that if all goes well, they still expect to release the film on Christmas this year. The actor had announced Laal Singh Chaddha on his 54th birthday in 2019. “I have always loved Forrest Gump as a script. It is a wonderful story about this character. It is a life-affirming story. It is a feel-good film. It is a film for the whole family. It’s a wonderful film so I really like it,” he had said at the time.
