Kareena Kapoor has fuelled speculations about a sequel to her 2009 comedy-drama 3 Idiots, the hit Rajkumar Hirani directorial that starred Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi and R. Madhavan as three best friends.
In an Instagram post on Friday, the actress expressed her suspicion over a sequel to 3 Idiots being made without her in it. The video shows a picture of Aamir, Sharman and Madhavan from a ‘press conference’ with 3 Idiots written in the background.
“I can’t believe this!! How can they do this without me? 😡 @boman_irani have they kept this a secret from you also?,” Kareena wrote alongside the video.
In the video, Kareena says that while she was away on a holiday, the three seem to have confirmed a 3 Idiots sequel. “I just got to know that when I was on a holiday that these three were up to something. This press conference ka clip that is going around is from the secret that these three are keeping from us. Something is fishy and please don't say this is Sharman ka some movie promotion. I think they are coming for a sequel. But only these three, without me? I don't think even Boman knows about this. Calling Boman right now to check aakhir chal kya raha hai yaar. This smells like a sequel for sure,” the actress says.
After Kareena, actor Boman Irani, who played the role of Virus in the film, also shared a video on Instagram in which he looks visibly upset to know that a sequel is in the works without him in it.
“How can they make a #3Idiots sequel without Virus? Virus villain nahi hoga toh kaun hoga, aur kya hi hoga?? 🥸🥸,” he wrote alongside the video.
In the video, he talks about calling actor Javed Jaffrey, who appeared in an impactful cameo in the original film.
Later, Jaffrey posted a video on Instagram to express his disappointment. The 59-year-old actor captioned the video, “Arre.. @kareenakapoorkhan & @Boman_Irani ko nahi liya..Toh phir pakka @monajsingh ko bhi nahi liya hoga”
Based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel Five Point Someone, 3 Idiots went on to become a blockbuster and grossed over Rs 400 crore worldwide.
