Aamir said that “Rajkumar Hirani offered him a good role of the late actor politician and it had many layers as it traced a rather complicated relationship between the father and his prodigal son but the only character which totally excited me was Ranbir’s key role. If I does the movie, it would only be for the central character. The role was so well written that I totally suited into it”.
