Actor Olivier Lafont said that it's amazing how his character, Suhas Tandon is still remembered and people are apologising him for misunderstanding his character
Aamir Khan, R Madhavan, and Sharman Joshi-starrer 3 Idiots is still best remembered for its memorable characters and hilariously comical scenes, and the perfect balance between tear-jerking emotion and comedy. Apart from Rancho, Raju Rastogi, Farhan Qureshi, and Chatur Ramalingum, Suhan Tandon is also considered one of the memorable characters from the film.
When the movie was released, Suhas was considered a heartless character. However, many netizens do agree that they misunderstood the character, and they are finding Suhas relatable and correct. One of the users shared a post on his analysis about Suhas Tandon and called him a 'good person' who valued money and was correct. The post went viral, and even French actor Oliver Lafont, who played Suhas came across the viral analysis of his character, and acknowledged him and other people who are apologising for misjudging his character.
Olivier Lafont shared the screenshot of the tweet on Facebook and wrote, "Lately, I've been getting messages from people 'apologizing' about misunderstanding the character of Suhas Tandon that I played many years ago in the film 3 Idiots, and then this post by Aaraynsh Singh went viral highlighting the conversation about a balanced understanding and appreciation of the place of money in life. It's amazing that both the movie and the character had such an impact then, and even now. It's also nice that Suhas is finally getting some love."
Here's the post

Oliver shared the viral post that says, "Suhas, I used to laugh at you as a kid, but as I grew up, I realized you were a good man. Losing a 4-lakh rupee watch, for which you had worked tirelessly, would drive anyone crazy. I now understand now how it feels when a pair of 400 dollar shoes get dirty."
