After the stupendous success of the Munnabhai series, Rajkumar Hirani is now busy with his next. As is by now well known, this time Hirani has opted for Shahrukh Khan, who was the original choice for Munnabhai Mbbs, but it did not work out, and in walked Sanjay Dutt. And the rest, as they say, is history!
Coming back to the SRK-Hirani project, apparently it is based on Chetan Bhagat's book on the IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) culture, 'Five Point Someone'. The paperback is about three friends, who are unable to cope with the pressures of being in the premier institution. As per sources, the script is being reworked, keeping SRK's age and image into consideration.
While on Hirani's next in the Munnabhai series, Munnabhai Chale Amerika, he will take it up after completing the Shahrukh Khan project, that some refer to as Idiots.
