What is common between Aamir Khan and IIM Ahmedabad? Come on, it’s an easy catch! The link is 3 Idiots, Aamir Khan’s latest movie whose screenplay has been adapted from Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller ‘5 point someone’. Chetan Bhagat is an alumnus of IIM-A, a passout of 1997. On Feb 7, 2008, all roads in IIMA led to Class Room 10 where Aamir Khan was to deliver a lecture to a batch of around 80 second year students as part of their elective course “Introduction to Contemporary Film Industry”. Aamir Khan shared his experience in the film industry over the past two decades and gave a lot of insights into the ‘business’ side of film-making.
The initiative by Prof. Tejas Desai to float this course was hugely successful and all students were very pleased with both the experience of ‘learning’ from Aamir himself as well as the opportunity to understand the film industry in a systematic manner. Famous celebrities who have donned the new role of teaching before Aamir for this course include Apoorva Lakhia and Sanjay Gadhvi. This evening with Aamir is something no one who was there will ever forget!
