The buzz is that Rajkumar Hirani is making changes in the script of 3 Idiots.. or is he? Vajir Singh has the details.

Talk in the trade is that Rajkumar Hirani and his writers are planning to make changes in the script of 3 Idiots toplining Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor, which is said to be based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel Five Point Someone.

Reason: Hello, the adaptation of Bhagat’s novel One Night at a Call Center, laid an egg at the box office.

Halt right there
According to the trade, besides the inclement weather the film’s shooting at Ladakh came to halt because Hirani wanted to re-work on the script.

On being contacted, Hirani didn’t want to comment on the trade speculations. Meanwhile, a spokesperson of Vinod Chopra Films, said that in any case the script of 3 Idiots was not adapted from Five Point Someone.

It was added that Five Point Someone was just the starting point — ‘the inspiration.’ The script of 3 idiots remains just the way Abhijat Joshi, Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani conceived and wrote.

About the halt in the shooting in Ladakh, the spokesperson stated that already two shooting schedules of the film have been completed and the next one is on the cards shortly.
