Connaught Place had two special shoppers on Wednesday. Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor were spotted looking for cool bargains at a well known store. They weren’t going to buy anything though — they shopping for a scene from Raju Hirani’s 3 Idiots.
According to sources, the crew arrived at 6.30 pm and began setting up the equipment. Within minutes, the always-crowded shopping area was converted to a high security zone. The store was covered with black curtains and had more than 15 policemen and double the number of bouncers surrounding it.
The director arrived about two hours later while the stars, Kareena and Aamir waited at a nearby five star hotel. Kareena finally arrived at 8 pm and one of her make-up artists remarked, “Madam ka mood theek nahi hain. Itni der se intezar kar rahi hain aur ab yah itni bheed hai.”
Kareena was dressed in a casual kurta and salwar, with broad frame specs and straight hair — the make-up artist explained: “Dilli ki ladkiyan aise hi kapde pehnti hain naa.”
On the other hand, Aamir arrived looking fresh, in a pink t-shirt and jeans. After his scene was shot, the star spent quite a while chatting with the crew while sipping a cutting (chai).
The shoot wrapped up at about 4.30 am. Interestingly, all these scenes in Delhi will be shot at night.
A Reporters Escapade:
As we looked around, trying to figure out what was going on and hoping to get some contacts in place, one of the crewmembers called out to me, asking if I was a ‘part of the sequence’.
But judging the dumbfounded expression on my face, soon realized I wasn’t. Having got the cut that I could possibly fit in, I headed to a group of young, extremely decked up guys and girls who were being briefed by a middle aged man on how to go about the ‘crowd-shot’.
Soon, a man yelled out, rolling. Not sure whether that was a cue, or whether they were even filming, I pretended to be a part of the shot, desperately trying not to look out of place. Within minutes, the same guy yelled out ‘cut’, much to my relief. In all probability, it was just a rehearsal, but you never know… maybe I was part of the real deal.
