Aamir Khan has admitted he would like to work on the follow-up to the 2009 hit film 3 Idiots. Speaking at a special screening of Saala Khadoos, Hirani’s latest production, Aamir said, “Raju Hirani has given me a hint about 3 Idiots sequel and I am giving you all a hint. The film will happen if and whenever he will write the script. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.”
Director Rajkumar Hirani also shared the actor’s excitement for the 3 Idiots sequel. He said, “We have a great idea for the sequel to ‘3 Idiots’. The idea is very sketchy but if everything falls in place, we would love to work together again”.
In 3 Idiots, Aamir Khan plays the role of Rancho, who has a very quirky and refreshing outlook towards the system of education in India. Actors R Madhavan and Sharman Joshi played his college mates. The film followed Madhavan and Sharman as they travelled across the country to find their best friend, Rancho. The film went on to become the highest-grossing Bollywood film in overseas markets.
The movie was also successfully remade in Tamil as Nanban, starring actors Vijay, Srikanth and Jiiva.
Aamir Khan after 3 Idiots, joined hands with the director for the film PK. The movie was declared a massive success at the box office. The director has been missing in action since then.
