Boy oh boy, were we anticipating this news! Ever since Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. hit our screens, the public just went wild with admiration for the movie’s catchy humour and Sanjay Dutt’s classic, comedic portrayal. A sequel titled Lage Raho Munna Bhai in 2006 also met the expectation of the prequel and impressed all. However, nine year elapsed and a third installment did not get made at all.
However, Rajkumar Hirani came up with the good news that there was indeed work going on to helm a third installment of the Munna Bhai franchise. This is what he said:-
“I am writing a script for Munna Bhai 3. Sanju will star in it, and will play his age. I spoke to him [about the film when he came out on parole recently], and he was very excited,” says Hirani, whose next is a biopic on Sanjay, starring Ranbir Kapoor. “I have a couple of ideas, so I am writing two more scripts besides Sanju’s biopic. While one is a Munna Bhai film, there’s also another new story.”
Rajkumar Hirani also divulged into details as to why he did not helm a third part of the movie. He cited the reasons that he had not found anything in particular which proved to him that the third part was as better as Lage Raho Munna Bhai, ot better.
Now, I have found a story that is as good as Lage Raho Munna Bhai or maybe even better. I wasn’t doing it (the third part) because I wasn’t finding anything that matches that level. Now, I have found it, but it will take some time to write it. I plan to take it up after wrapping up Sanju’s biopic,” added Hirani.
We know definitely a Munna Bhai 3 would be a marvelous flick indeed, owing to the magical collaboration of Rajkumar Hirani and Sanjay Dutt.
