3Anushka Sharma : 3 Idiots
Third in our list of Bollywood auditions one cannot afford to miss is the audition tape of feisty and spirited actress, Anushka Sharma, for the film ‘3 Idiots’ (2010). Yes, you heard that right, for the film ‘3 Idiots’, which starred Kareena Kapoor Khan, Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi, R. Madhvan and Boman Irani in principal roles. Directed by noted filmmaker, Raj Kumar Hirani, the coming of age comedy drama is considered to be a landmark film of Indian cinema with a massive fan following in Asia region. But do you know that Anushka Sharma would have played the role of Pia Sahastrabuddhe in place of Kareena Kapoor Khan had she been chosen?
Today, we cannot imagine any other Bollywood actress in the role of Pia Sahastrabuddhe, which was eventually played by Kareena Kapoor. But it is true that the makers had first auditioned Anushka Sharma for the pivotal role. Another interesting trivia related to the said role is that when Anushka auditioned for it she had no idea which film she had auditioned for. She only realized it recently when her audition tape went viral on social media.
