Rajkumar Hirani confirms working on the sequel for his blockbuster film 3 Idiots
3 Idiots is unarguably one of the most loved Indian films of all time. The movie directed by hit maker Rajkumar Hirani had Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi in the lead roles. Based on Chethan Bhagat’s best selling novel Five Point Someone, Rajkumar Hirani, Abhijat Joshi and Vidhu Vinod Chopra scripted a coming-of-age comedy entertainer that revolved around the lives of three engineering students. Upon its release in 2009, the movie shattered all pre-existing records and emerged as the highest grossing Indian film of all time.
Rajkumar Hirani has now revealed that he has started works for the sequel of 3 Idiots, in collaboration with his writer Abhijat Joshi. He is quoted saying, “I definitely want to make a sequel to 3 Idiots. In fact, Abhijat and I started writing something a few days ago. But it’s still in the initial stage and we will take a fair amount of time to develop the script.”
The sequel is expected to bring back the crazy friends Rancho (Aamir Khan) Farhan (Madhvan) and Raju (Sharman Joshi). If things go as per plans, the movie will start rolling once Hirani wraps his next project, Munna Bhai 3, the third installment in the hugely popular Munna Bhai franchise. The director is currently busy with the promotions of Sanju, the biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt. Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead is slated to hit screens worldwide on June 29.
