Three IdiotsThree IdiotsThree Idiots is a forthcoming Indian film starring Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Kareena Kapoor, and Boman Irani in pivotal roles. The film, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, is loosely based on a famous novel, Five Point Someone by Indian writer Chetan Bhagat. Vidhu Vinod Chopra will be producing the film whilst Abhijat Joshi and Raju Hirani have written the screenplay. The film’s soundtrack will be composed by Shantanu Moitra with lyrics penned by Swanand Kirkire. Three Idiots has been confirmed for a release on December 25, 2009.

The shoot of the film with the supporting characters began on July 28, 2008. Hirani and his team left in late August for the shoot with the principal cast. The film was shot in Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Ladakh and Shimla. Aamir and rest of the cast began shooting in early September. Hirani planned to wrap up the film by December. The first scene was shot in an aircraft with Madhavan. From Mumbai, the crew and cast comprising Aamir and Kareena went to Ladakh for a 20-day schedule. The shooting also took place at the Indian Institute of Management – Bangalore for 33 days as a part of the second schedule of production.

The lead casting was announced to be comprised of Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Kareena Kapoor and Boman Irani. Kajol was supposed to play a lead in the film but turned it down. The role went to Kareena Kapoor. Kajol will however make a cameo appearance. Shahrukh Khan was supposed to play the main lead in the film, but that changed and Aamir stepped in instead.

R. Madhavan joined the cast and was asked by the director to lose weight for his part along with the other two leading men. He said “It’s not about looking thinner or younger. All three of us need to look convincing as IIT students. How we choose to do so has been left to us”. Actor Aamir Khan had to do the same and reportedly lost 8 kgs of weight and shed muscles which he had acquired for his previous film Ghajini. Mona Singh of Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin was roped in to play a role created specifically for the movie only. Newcomer Rahul Kumar has been signed for playing a small part in the film.
