We know Anushka Sharma got her big Bollywood break opposite Shah Rukh Khan in 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' in 2008. But did you know the actress had auditioned for Rajkumar Hirani's '3 Idiots' at the age of 19? On her 27th birthday today, we take a nostalgic trip to her early days in Bollywood and present you her audition video for '3 Idiots'.

Watch Anushka Sharma's audition for '3 Idiots' in the video below:

As the video reveals, Anushka delivered a monologue from 'Munnabhai MBBS' during her audition for '3 Idiots'. It is interesting to note that Rajkumar Hirani, director of '3 Idiots', did not know Anushka had auditioned for the film, and was taken by surprise when she showed him the clip. Aamir Khan's reaction to her audition clip is hilarious and worth a watch too!
