Anil's gesture wasn't out of the blue and had definite reasons behind it. Mukesh Ambani had helped director Raj Kumar Hirani get permission for shooting inside IIM Bangalore using his influence. IITs and IIMs do not usually open their campuses for such purpose but Mukesh made sure that Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi and Madhavan could dance and shoot in the sprawling greenery of one of India's best B Schools.
If you though there was no love left between estranged brothers Anil Ambani and Mukesh Ambani as many might have missed Anil's warm gesture to his brother Mukesh in the movie 3 Idiots. The opening credits of the Reliance Big Pictures' movie 3 Idiots thanked Mukesh Ambani. This raised many eyebrows as the two brother have had bitter relationship since splitting their family business a few years ago.
