That Aamir Khan’s one of the highest grossing film 3 Idiots was inspired from Chetan Bhagat’s novel Five Points Someone, is something that we all are aware about. So it was a tad surprising when the superstar while talking about the film, forgot Chetan’s name.
At the teaser launch of Secret Superstar, when a journalist asked Aamir if he met Sonam Wangchuk during 3 Idiots and if his character was based on his life, the actor refused and said, “It was based on this author’s novel…. Arre what is his name?”
When the audience prompted with Chetan Bhagat’s name, Aamir said, “Yes yes. The film was inspired by Chetan Bhagat’s book Five Point Something… Someone.”
We wonder how would Chetan Bhagat react to Aamir’s surprising act!
