Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood, Aamir Khan was given a 25 page contract while signing the film 3 Idiots. The meticulous actor was surprised by such detailing gone into the contract.
Aamir is known for being very finicky when it comes to clauses in a film contract. But he was left stumped when producer of 3 Idiots Vidhu Vinod Chopra went to him along with the director of the film Rajkumar Hirani (of the Munnabhai series fame) with the film's contract. Aamir it is learnt didn't have any apprehensions about the contract clauses mentioned in such finely detailed manner. That including a special clause that clearly stated that he must not interfere in the filmmaking process.
Now everyone knows how Aamir Khan gets involved during the making of the film and can't resist giving a tip or two or his valuable suggestions to the filmmakers which at times are accepted and if not then how it leads to tension on his film's sets. Chopra and Hirani seem to have played a smart card by clearing this out once and for all well in advance with Aamir. But, Aamir didn't have any complaints this time and he signed the contract without any hassles bringing a sigh of relief on both Chopra and Hirani's faces.
3 Idiots stars Aamir Khan along with Kareena Kapoor, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani. Based on the best seller by Chetan Bhagat, Five Point Someone, 3 Idiots tells the story of three IIT graduates played by Aamir, Madhavan and Sharman respectively. The principal shooting of the film has begun recently along with the supporting cast of the film. Aamir, Sharman and Madhavan will join the team in early September. The film is scheduled to be shot in Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Ladakh, and is expected to be wrapped up by December 2008. Music has been given by Shantanu Moitra and lyricist of the film is Swanand Kirkire.
