But did you know? Anushka Sharma also auditioned for the role played by Kareena Kapoor Khan? Yes, you heard that right. However, her audition was not even seen by Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan until they all united on PK sets. And well, the reactions on seeing it, were hilarious!
Before the release of PK, Anushka Sharma released a video revealing the news. “I had auditioned for a lead role in a film in 2007. And, that film was 3 Idiots. No one knows it, no one watched the audition. You have not watched it, Raju sir has not watched it,” she could be heard saying.
Rajkumar Hirani was in denial when he heard the news. He could be heard saying, “Anushka auditioned for 3 Idiots? No, no, no. Anushka never auditioned for 3 Idiots.”
The camera then pans to Aamir Khan and Hirani watching the audition tape. Anushka had delivered a monologue from Munnabhai MBBS. The trio were all cracking up together and it was an adorable moment.
