5 INTERESTING UNKNOWN FACTS:

1. Rajkumar Hirani’s father, Suresh, migrated from Sindh (now Pakistan) to India during the time of Indo-Pak partition. Suresh was only 14 at that time.

2. His father started a typing institute in Nagpur, initially with just 2 typewriters. In a matter of months, his father was training around 1000 students with 16 batches a day. However, the typewriters were soon replaced by computers and the business was forced to shut.

3. Although Hirani’s parents wanted him to become a Chartered Accountant, he was more inclined towards theater and acting. During his college days, he was an active participant in the field of Hindi Theatre.

4. After watching their son’s zeal to become an actor, his parents made every possible effort to fulfill his dream. As a result, they sent Hirani to a reputed acting school in Mumbai. However, he could not adopt the environment of the school and came back to his house a few days later.

5. After graduating, Hirani struggled for many years in Mumbai, in order to become a film editor. Finding no success, he then shifted to the field of advertising, where he slowly and steadily established himself as a director of commercial advertisements. He himself started featuring in many commercials soon after.

5 FAMOUS QUOTES:

1. Yes, I have shown it as well as some scenes to him. He gets overwhelmed. In fact, I told him to see the full film, but he said no, he would watch it when it’s complete. He came to the sets only twice. I think he is pretty brave. He has talked about everything in his life. I don’t think everyone will have that courage.

2. Success is all about being able to do what you want to do.

3. PK gave us the maximum trouble. After this experience, I felt that if in six to eight months we can`t crack a script, we should push it aside and start something else.

4. You can never be happy with your script. We always feel it could be made better.

5. I initially thought you can`t work with another writer. Writing is a lonely process.

5 MOST POPULAR DIALOGUES:

Aye Mamu…jadoo ki jhappi de daal aur baat khatam.

206 type ka sirf haddi hai…todne ke time apun log sochte they cake.

Bachcha kabil bano,kabil…kamyabi toh saali jhak maarke peeche bhagegi.

Dost fail ho jaye toh dukh hota hai…lekin dost first aa jaye toh zyada dukh hota hai

Jo darr gaya, so mandir gaya!

CONTROVERSIES:

• In the year 2009, Rajkumar Hirani`s Blockbuster movie, 3 Idiots, garnered some negative publicity when author Chetan Bhagat alleged the filmmakers of copying the movie`s story from his novel- Five Point Someone. Terming it as a clear case of defamation, Hirani said that Chetan Bhagat had already been paid the amount mentioned in the contract and that the latter was now resorting to cheap techniques for materialistic gains.                   

• Hirani`s next project, PK (2014), also made headlines at the time of its release. The film was criticized for portraying religion and godmen in a bad light. Despite the controversy, the film managed to cross the 300-crore mark in the domestic market.
