"Aamir said a considerable chunk of the audience did not know that he had made a film called '3 Idiots' (2009). The Hindi-speaking people thought the film's name was 'Aal is well' (because of the catchy song in the film). They did not connect with the '3 Idiots' title since it was in English. So, Aamir felt it was better to stick to Hindi so as to be able to widen our audience reach," says Nikhil.

Interestingly, Imran Khan, who is Aamir's nephew and plays the lead role in the film opposite Kangana Ranaut, had offered the same suggestion to Nikhil while shooting.

"I used to request Nikhil on a daily basis to rewrite English lines in Hindi.He would then ask me to do it. If you want to reach out to a bigger audience, then it is important to have Hindi lines," says Imran.

However, even as Imran rewrote a few lines, his maamujaan still thought English had been overused in dialogue writing, the young actor says, adding that he later dubbed for the re-written dialogues in Hindi, while Kangana's lines remained unchanged.
