Five point someone or someone else!
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
May 26, 2008

That’s a question that has been asked quite a few times now but we still have not got a reply that makes us any better informed. What we know for sure is that Rajkumar Hirani is making a film titled Three Idiots for which best selling author Chetan Bhagath is writing the script. The movie revolves around the college life of three guys who couldn’t have

been worse misfits in the institution (going by the title). Aamir Khan plays one of the idiots and news received recently also confirms Madhavan as another Idiot. The movie will have just one leading heroine and that is Kareena Kapoor. So, three guys running from pillar to post in an institution and one leading lady; for those who have read Five Point Someone these clues are good enough for confirmation that the movie is based on the book. But ask Chetan Bhagath or Rajkumar Hirani about it and they have something else to say.

As Chethan Bhagath said the other day in an interview that mainly focused on Three Mistakes of my Life (his latest book), he was writing a script for a movie which meant less pressure because no one cared about language or spellings here, and there was no direct reference to Rajkumar Hirani, Three Idiots or Five Point Someone. Rajkumar Hirani said that when they had started they too had looked to build a script based on Five Point Someone but the whole string of incidents of the book could not be effectively put into a movie script. So, they took to a different story that too revolves around three guys in college, which will be as funny or even more than the book.

So, even though we swallow this only with a pinch of salt, for the moment we have to believe that Three Idiots is not Five Point Someone- it came straight from the director’s mouth.

Other details about the movie are as follows. Rajkumar Hirani had wanted Shahrukh to be cast in the lead but it did not work out due to certain production details and this is not the first time that a SRK-Hirani has failed to work out. But all seems to have ended well since Hirani now has Aamir Khan, and things couldn’t get better. Looking forward to relive the Dil Chahtha Hai experience.
