Panaji, Nov 23:
Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra says he wants to make the blockbuster “3 Idiots” in various languages because it left an impact on many people’s lives.
“I’d like to make ‘3 Idiots’ in Chinese, French and English. I would love to make it in every language in the world. It changed many lives including my daughter. She left media studies and learnt Kathak. Now, she teaches dance,” said Chopra, who also confessed that while growing up, he couldn’t tell his father that he wanted to be a filmmaker and not a doctor.
The Rajkumar Hirani directorial, which criticised the education system in India without being too preachy, released in India in 2009.
The Chopra production featured Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi, R. Madhavan and Kareena Kapoor.
Chopra made the remarks Sunday here at the Film Bazaar’s “Master Class with Vidhu Vinod Chopra: a dialogue between Filmmakers”, where he was interviewed by director Sudhir Mishra, who had worked with him in 1985 film “Khamosh”. (IANS)
