Imtiaz and Rahman has worked together on Rockstar, Highway and Tamasha and they share very close bond, when asked Imtiaz whether biopic should be made on Rahman, Imtiaz said, “Definitely.. I think biopic should be made on A. R. Rahman sir but I don’t think, this is the right time to make film on his life.

“If anybody is interested making a film on him then they have to start their research about that but it should be made later on. He is too young and he is in the middle point of his career”

Talking about his excitement about watching One Heart, he said, “I feel no matter what you expect but you will still be surprised. I don’t know what’s going to happen with me because I am not expecting anything. I am really looking forward to the surprise. I think it is going to be musically interesting and in terms of format it will be very surprising”
