Rajkumar Hirani is one filmmaker who has consistently pushed the boundaries by delivering some of the most beloved films to the audience. His films offer a joyous journey of emotions, laughter and love, infused with a personal touch. Through his greatly entertaining storytelling, Hirani has carved an irreplaceable place for himself.

Among his actors, Hirani shares a special rapport with Boman Irani, and the former’s smash-hit debut, Munna Bhai MBBS, established the latter also as a formidable actor. Irani continued his marathon run with the maker in Lage Raho Munna Bhai and 3 Idiots, also doing important roles in PK, Sanju and Dunkee.

Recently, Hirani and Irani were at an event and Irani hailed the filmmaker and shed light on his stories, saying, “Raju’s films are personal, as they originate from his belief system. There is a part of him in every story he writes.” And over the two decades-plus he has directed movies, Hirani has also shown that there is also Irani in every film he writes and makes!

In turn, the filmmaker also revealed that the highly-acclaimed scene, where R. Madhavan’s character Farhan expresses his desire to become a wildlife photographer to his father in 3 Idiots, was inspired by his own life. It is fascinating how he brings his personal approach to life through cinema, making it more relatable and interesting for the audience.
