The actor’s team had started intense research on the film. “Some of us, who were researching for the project, are disheartened after seeing Rustom. It has very little to do with the case. The tone of our film was going to be totally different. It’s one of the most important cases of our times and deserved to be brought to celluloid with some responsibility,” DNA quoted a source as saying.

Aamir even had Nanavati’s widow Sylvia on board. “Aamir was very eager to do a film on the case. He was collaborating with director Ram Madhvani on the same. After the director helmed the true-life account in Neerja effectively, Aamir felt Madhvani was the best filmmaker to piece together the intricate jigsaw pieces of the real-life Nanavati case,” DNA quoted a source as saying.

Actor Pooja Bhatt and Soni Razdan also announced their film Love Affair which is based on the same story.
