Ali Fazal revealed that when he landed the role of Joy Lobo in Rajkumar Hirani’s hit film 3 Idiots, he had no idea how to play the guitar. He recounted how he diligently learned all the chords for the song Give Me Some Sunshine before shooting began, but faced a challenge when Hirani instructed him not to look at the guitar while playing. Fazal also fondly recalled the guidance he received from Aamir Khan.

Recalling his casting, Fazal mentioned, “I just remember getting a call. I remember going in for the audition wearing this one t-shirt, which I probably used to wear like 4 days a week and getting cast and being told, ‘Woh, tum shirt wahi le aana beta, hume wohi shirt chaiye’.”

He admitted to initially learning the guitar and mastering every chord, only to face gentle teasing from his musician friends later because he played flawlessly on set. However, Hirani intervened and advised him not to look at the guitar, while Aamir Khan suggested sticking to common chords.

Portraying the passionate engineering student Joy Lobo, whose project faces rejection in the film, Fazal also mentioned that the shirt he wore during auditions made its way into the movie. He added that it got damaged during a tragic scene, but the makers stitched it back together and returned it to him. The 2009 movie was a massive success.
