3 IDIOTS has seen a huge global release and as expected, it has enticed audiences enough to check it out in dozens. While the days leading to the New Year have pretty much belonged to 3 IDIOTS with every conversation centered around the film, it's the simplicity factor that is most talked about. For this, all credit goes to one man who goes by the name of Rajkumar Hirani. In spite of two superstars Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor, he refused to get carried away by their star presence and instead chose a path which is synonymous with his name. Also, it's the plain, real and simple look that Aamir carried which connected with the audiences across all age groups.

"Not to forget the reality in the way he approached his performance as well", Hirani is quick to add, "This is how Aamir wanted it all the time. He wanted it all real instead of going through the rounds of 'draamebaazi'. In the past we have had some great performers like Raj Kumar saab or Pran saab who kept audiences entertained through their unique way of dialogue delivery. But you know, it involved a lot of over the top drama as well."

Commenting on the way today's acting style is emerging, Hirani continues, "Today's style is a little underplayed and knowing current sensibilities, Aamir and I felt that it would just suit the film's subject if we tone down everything. Actually for Aamir, it was double the effort since from GHAJINI to 3 IDIOTS, he didn't just have to make an entire shift in the way he approached his character but also loosen all the muscles that he had gained."
