After the release of Ghajini, Aamir is busy shooting for 3 Idiots and to get into the skin of a character he is staying at the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, hostel. 3 Idiots is the adaptation of Chetan Bagat’s novel Five Point Someone. It is based on three students of IIM.
As we all know Aamir is perfectionist, he is staying in the IIM-B hostel as a student to get in the skin of the character. Aamir will spend 45 days along with the crew at the hostel in Bangalore.
Aamir was previously staying at a star hotel, but when he came to know that his other co-stars Sharman Joshi and Madhavan were put up at the IIM-B hostel, he requested director of the film and joined them at the hostel.
One IIMite said, “The star actor meets students regularly during mornings and evenings and chats with them about their routine studies and way of life. He enquires as to how an IIM-Bian student thinks.”
One more thing we came to know that Aamir is a regular jogger. A student of IIM who is a regular jogger said, “Aamir is one of the first to go for a jog every morning. I am a regular jogger inside the campus. But, to my surprise, I found Aamir too jogging. When Aamir saw me, he said ‘hi’ and continued his jogging”
The actor is also a great chess, badminton and tennis player. One student added, “When I was playing chess with my friend, Aamir just walked in and joined me for a game of chess. It was a hard game to beat him.”
The students also acknowledge that Aamir is always the first to say hi. “Aamir always greets us with a smile though he doesn’t know us,” added another student.
Aamir always ready for a photograph and had seen regularly playing badminton and tennis. However the cast and crew of the film have taken responsibility that none of their shoot will affect the routine class sessions. The actors are on a three month long shoot.
The film is being directed by director Raj Kumar Hirani and being produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Music for the film will be given by Shantanu Moitra, while Swanand Kirkire has written the lyrics. Raju Hirani and Abhijat Joshi have written the screenplay for a film.
