Rajkumar Hirani says, 3 idiots scene is inspired by his life:

Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani recently shared a personal anecdote during an event in Kolkata, shedding light on the inspiration behind a famous scene from his film “3 Idiots.” In this iconic confession scene, R. Madhavan’s character expresses his desire to become a wildlife photographer to his father. Interestingly, this scene was inspired by a real-life experience from Hirani’s own life.

As a young man, Hirani initially considered pursuing engineering but eventually followed his uncle’s advice and enrolled in Chartered Accountancy (CA) studies. However, he soon realized that CA was not his true passion. Bravely, he confessed his feelings to his father, mirroring the emotional conversation portrayed in “3 Idiots.” Reflecting on this pivotal moment, Hirani shared, “The scene from ‘3 Idiots’ where R. Madhavan tells his father he wants to be a wildlife photographer—that is one scene out of my life. I gathered the courage and told my father that CA was not my calling, and he asked me to join him. I can’t tell you the joy and relief I felt” . It’s fascinating how life experiences can shape art and storytelling.
