Aamir Khan unveils first look of '3 Idiots' in Mumbai.

Byline: ANI

Mumbai, Nov 5(ANI): Bollywood actors Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan and Sharman Joshi on Thursday unveiled the first look of their upcoming film '3 Idiots' in Mumbai.

'3 Idiots' is a celluloid adaptation of author Chetan Bhagat's best selling fiction 'Five Point Someone'.

Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the movie '3 Idiots' is a story of three friends whose dismal grade point averages at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) influenced their friendship, love life and career choices.

Addressing the media while presenting the maiden look of their film, Aamir Khan said that film is inspired from individuals, who were considered to be idiots for working on certain causes, but finally made a mark changing a lot in society.

"There are many people like this in history. When we see them initially, we feel amused, but later on we realize that they are doing the right thing. So, the tag line of the film is 'Don't be stupid, be an idiot'. Stupid is someone who is 'bewakoof' (unintelligent), but being an idiot is a good thing and not wrong. People would realize this if not today, but surely in the future," Aamir Khan said.

Aamir plays the character of Rancho, who is a free-spirited young man and ever confused about kissing.

Indeed, he has tasted success playing roles of a college student in movies such as 'Dil Chahta Hai', 'Rang de Basanti' and now it is the turn of '3 Idiots'.

R. Madhavan, who has worked with Aamir in their last successful film 'Rang De Basanti', said that his character is of Farhan Qureshi, who quite willingly deviates towards the wrong path making him look like an idiot in the film.

"My name is Farhan Akhtar... Farhan Qureshi. This is my idiocracy. I love animals a lot and there is an adage in English 'Barking up the wrong tree'. So, I am like that always walking upon the wrong path with full enthusiasm," R Madhavan said.

The film is produced and directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and it is slated for a Christmas release. (ANI)
