Apparently, Biswaroop Roy Chowdhury (who deals with memory enhancement techniques) has gone ahead and made a 35 minute animation film called The 4th Idiot. The movie starts where 3 Idiots ends i.e. at Phunsuk Wangdu's school and tells the story of a young boy Pappu who achieves his many dreams using the techniques taught by Rancho in 3 Idiots. What's even more surprising is that Omi Vaidya, who was seen as Chatur Ramalingam in 3 Idiots, has given his voice-over for this animated film. The 4th Idiot was to be screened for students at the World Unity Convention Centre in Lucknow recently. However, the makers seem to be in a soup now as Vidhu Vinod Chopra Productions have taken legal action against them
Vidhu Vinod Chopra is furious with the makers of this film for using a similar title, story idea and setting in their film. He has even slapped a law-suit on producer-director Biswarop Roy Chowdhury for copyright violation. Chopra is now awaiting the verdict on this case.
