The first two instatements – Munna Bhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munna Bhai. Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi starrer ‘Munna Bhai’ series is considered as one of the most successful franchises of Bollywood. The fans are eagerly waiting for the third part of the film and now Rajkumar Hirani has confirmed that he will soon begin working on ‘Munna Bhai 3’ with Sanjay Dutt.
The director finally answered the question in a recent interview with Outlook. “We wanted to do the third Munna Bhai film and even wrote a lot of it, but we were not able to match the script with the first two. Now, I have found something, though we still have to write it,” Rajkumar Hirani said.
Talking about the success of the two films, Hirani said, “We were all new and naive at the time. While we were filming Munna Bhai MBBS, we didn’t think we were doing some kind of mainstream cinema. I only knew that I was doing a different kind of cinema. More than its commercial success, it fetched us a lot of love and affection from people. I was happy that my family and friends saw it. That joy itself was enough. Never in my life had I thought of anything like this.”
Interestingly, even Sanjay Dutt earlier joked about it to Aamir Khan. Raju tells us, “Once, when Sanjay met Aamir, he told him, ‘Raju Munna Bhai nahin likh raha hai, meri kahaani likh raha hai. And the latter joked, ‘Tumne usko batayi kyun? Usko woh zyada interesting lagi hogi.’”
