Aamir Khan's to drink before filming drunk scene in 3 Idiots

In a conversation with BeerBiceps, Madhavan recalled how it was Aamir Khan's idea that in a scene where you are shown as drunk, you shouldn't act but actually get intoxicated. He revealed that they were supposed to shoot at 9 pm and the plan was to start drinking around 8 pm. 

He further said, "But what happened is that the lighting conked off, so at 8:30 they said another two hours left. So, we wanted to maintain the same level of alcohol in our blood, except we didn’t realise that the cold Bangalore air would have a complete different impact on our intoxication. By the time the shot came, we thought we were completely normal, except we didn’t realise we were taking hours to deliver the lines."
