Actor Madhavan started shooting for Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s next venture 3 Idiots on August 26 in Mumbai. That first scene is taking place in an aircraft under the direction of Rajkumar Hirani, who is already very excited about the movie. “We are literally off to a flying start. It was amazing to shoot inside a real aircraft. We are really excited and raring to go,” he said.
The shooting of the movie started a few weeks earlier with the supporting cast, and the next schedule will mark the debut of the much expected new pair, Kareena Kapoor and Aamir Khan, who will be shooting in Ladakh for 20 days. They will also be shooting for the movie in other locations such as New Delhi and Bangalore, and the film should be completed by December of this year.
3 Idiots is based on Chetan Bhagat’s famous novel “Five Point Someone”. It tells the story of three IIT graduates and their failure to cope with the IIT’s cruel system.
Rang de Basanti fans will be delighted to see, along with Aamir Khan and Madhavan, the facetious Sharman Joshi as the third idiot.
The movie, produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, has been written by Rajkumar Hirani and Abhijet Joshi. The lyrics are penned by Swanand Kirkire, and the music is being composed by Shantanu Moitra.
