It’s a known fact that Anushka Sharma will be seen in Rajkumar Hirani’s PK. But did you know that she had auditioned for his last film, 3 IDIOTS? You heard that right. Anushka had auditioned for Kareena Kapoor Khan’s role in 3 IDIOTS. And you know what? The filmmaker was clueless about it.

Reveals Hirani, “I had no idea Anushka had auditioned for 3 IDIOTS.  A lot of auditions happen, some reach me and some don’t. While we were shooting for PK, my AD (Assistant Director) team informed me that Anushka had auditioned for 3 IDIOTS. When I refused to believe them, one of the ADs, actually scanned all the auditions of 3 IDIOTS and finally showed Aamir Khan and me Anushka’s auditions. It’s quite unbelievable that such kind of things can happen. “

In the audition, Anushka Sharma enacted a dialogue from MUNNABHAI MBBS.

Interestingly, Anushka didn’t have to audition for PK. Says Hirani, “I saw her in RAB NE BANA DI JODI and BAND BAAJA BAARAAT. After I saw her in BAND BAAJA BAARAAT, I thought she was perfect for PK. When she met me and asked if she had to give an audition, I said no because I had already seen in BAND BAAJA BAARAAT.”

Also starring Sushshant Singh Rajput, Sanjay Dutt, Boman Irani & Saurabh Shukla, PK is all set to release on 19th December.
