Everyone knows that that Aamir Khan is a perfectionist to the core. The cast and crew of “3 Idiots” had a surprise encounter of the perfectionist on the sets.
For a particular scene in the film, Amir Khan, Sharman Joshi and R. Madhavan had to be shown drunk. It was a night shoot and Aamir suggested that they actually get drunk to make the scene look more authentic. The director Rajkumar Hirani agreed and soon a bottle was brought and Aamir, Joshi and Madhavan started sipping and after a few gulps started shooting.
Director Rajkumar Hirani was happy with the way actors were giving their takes and wanted to shoot various options to choose the best. Sources of the unit say the scenes came out in a very authentic manner.
