The much-awaited sequel to the superhit Bollywood movie ‘3 Idiots’ has recently become the talk of the town after rumors spread on social media that it is in making and will again star the iconic trio of Aamir Khan, R Madhavan, and Sharman Joshi.
These rumors had led even the leading actress of the movie Kareena Kapoor to express that she had been kept in the dark regarding a prospective 3 Idiots sequel.
However, recently it was confirmed that they are actually rumors, and the sequel to 3 Idiots is not coming anytime soon. Instead, the 3 Idiots trio was seen promoting a new cricket betting app called Dream 11.
In a promotional video, the actors can be seen holding a press conference where they make fun of cricketers who try their luck in acting by appearing in TV commercials. They then announce their plan to enter the cricketing world. However, the video also includes reactions from cricketers who mock the actors.
In the ad, Aamir said,
Toh humne socha ye log acting mein busy hain to cricket hum kar lete hain.
Mocking this, Ravichandran Ashwin said,
bolne ke liye paisa nahi lagta hai bhai (talking is free).
The video showcases several cricketers making fun of and laughing at Aamir Khan for his suggestion to play cricket. However, the most hilarious discussion happened between Aamir Khan and Rohit Sharma.
The video shows a bunch of cricket players laughing and making fun of three actors’ portrayal of playing cricket. While discussing Aamir’s cricket prowess, one of the players, Rohit Sharma, said that playing cricket in a movie like Lagaan does not automatically make one a cricketer.
Referencing Aamir Khan’s iconic movie, Rohit Sharma said,
Lagaan mein cricket khelke koi cricketer nahi ban jata.
Then again, R.Madhavan made fun of him by pointing out that Aamir is the one who has produced “real hits” in his career. But again, Rohit makes fun of Aamir, adding,
2 sal mein ek hit deke koi Hitman nahi ban jata.
Furthermore, when actors flaunt Aamir’s 300 crore flicks, Jasprit Bumrah challenges the actors to play 150 on the field.
After this, while describing how difficult it may be for the performers on the field, Hardik Pandya added,
Ek bouncer aayega, zameen pe aajaoge
The summary of the viral advertisement is that everyone can play cricket on Dream11, supporting the #SabKhelenge tenet. The advertisement has hit the mark, receiving praise on the internet for its liberal sprinkle of nostalgia. On YouTube, the advertisement has received over 18M views.
