Rajkumar Hirani's 3 IDIOTS has achieved the All Time Blockbuster status within just two weeks of its release and the man behind it, the scriptwriter Abhijat Joshi is supremely happy.
Not many will know that Abhijat Joshi, apart from being the scriptwriter of the iconic LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI has also tasted failure with EKLAVYA and KAREEB, which he had co-written with producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Abhijat is 41 year old professor of English at Otterbein College in Ohio, America, and has been a part of the talented team since 1993, when he was approached by Vidhu Vinod Chopra to co-write KAREEB. Abhijat reveals the inspiration behind maverick director, Raju Hirani's work. He says that Raju is deeply influenced by Hindi writer Harishankar Parsai and gave him five volumes of Parsai's stories to read when they started working together.
Well, now you all know where the 'real' inspiration of 3 IDIOTS came from! Did someone say, Chetan Bhagat's FIVE POINT SOMEONE? Get your facts right fast!
