Mumbai: If all goes well, one could well hear director Rajkumar Hirani announcing the much-awaited sequel to his 2009 blockbuster film, 3 Idiots. We hear that scripting is almost nearing completion.

3 Idiots sequel is being co-written by Abhijat Joshi and Raju Hirani. More than half of it is complete and they are in the process of finishing off the remaining bit. Aamir has been kept in the loop about the progress of the script and they have been considering his inputs as well. Hirani doesn’t want to take 5 more years to direct his next and he is trying to finish this script off and get it on floors soon. The primary cast of the film remains the same and Raju has already spoken to R Madhavan and Sharman Joshi,” says a source.

We hear Aamir wants to kickstart the project as early as 2019 so that they can target a 2020 release.
