en Bollywood News EXCLUSIVE: Sharman Joshi reveals the impact 3 Idiots had on his life; says “People started knowing me by my name only after this film”

Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots is easily the film that stands out from Sharman Joshi’s career. But the film that became his claim-to-fame was N Chandra’s Style in 2001. This is what he revealed in an exclusive video chat with Bollywood Hungama. “People started knowing me as Bantu (his character name in Style). They didn’t know me by name though,” he said.

But he achieved actual fame only after he did his first and only Hirani movie. “They started knowing me by my name only after 3 Idiots,” said Sharman proudly. Sharing an interesting anecdote, the actor said he still remembers the shoot of Style when he and his co-star Sahil Khan had dressed up as women. “The first day I dressed up (as a woman) and walked onto the sets and started delivering my lines, Chandra ji was laughing like anything.”

Sharman added that this actually was an appreciation of his performance. “He (N Chandra) was absolutely delighted by the way I was playing it out,” he recalled. “Of course, he had seen me during rehearsals but then he saw me in the whole costume. Everyone was loving it. And Sahil and me were wondering since we had done that daily during the rehearsals and not many people were praising it then.”
