On R Madhavan’s birthday, his friend and co-star Sharman Joshi has shared a special memory from their film 3 Idiots. Released in 2009, the film was a big hit and also starred Aamir Khan
Sharman, who played the character of Raju Rastogi in 3 Idiots, told ETimes, “I especially remember the one scene where Aamir, Maddy and I were drunk and cursing Boman Irani’s character in the film. Aamir suggested that we drink and perform.
Aamir and I were on time to start drinking but Maddy had some work and reached a little late. Aamir told him to catch up with us. Madhavan is not much of a drinker but in order to catch up with us, he had a few drinks too fast. By the time we were ready for the scene, we were a little too high, but Maddy was even more so. He performed the scene brilliantly!”
Sharman further called Madhavan a “lovable guy”. He added, “Not often do you get to see Madhavan like that because he rarely gets drunk (laughs). That scene is a really memorable one for us. After the release of the film, Rajkumar Hirani sir, Maddy, and I went on a trip to Aruba and it was absolutely fantastic. Maddy is a very lovable guy; he is very pleasant with everyone. On that trip, we shared a lot of things.”
3 Idiots is a coming-of-age film based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller Five Point Someone. While Aamir Khan played Ranchhoddas Shamaldas Chanchad aka Rancho, Madhavan portrayed Farhan Qureshi.
Before 3 Idiots, Aamir, Madhavan and Sharman had shared screen space in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Rang De Basanti (2006).
