‘Munnabhai Chale Dilli’ to go ahead without writer Subhash Kapoor
The third instalment of the popular ‘Munnabhai‘ franchise has been in the making for quite a few years now. The movie kept getting delayed with Rajkumar Hirani working on ‘PK’, and later got shelved after Sanjay Dutt went to serve his jail term.
But soon after Sanjay was released, director Hirani got us excited again as he confirmed the movie. While he is currently busy with his Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor, he has confirmed that he will be directing the third part of the ‘Munnabhai’ series, titled ‘Munnabhai Chale Dilli’. However, it will now go ahead without the involvement of writer-director Subhash Kapoor. (Also Read: ‘Jolly LL.B 2’ making: Akshay Kumar and Subhash Kapoor make for the craziest actor-director duo)
Subhash was earlier roped in by producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra to direct the third part. But later when Hirani came on board, Sushash was said to be writing the film. He was working the story for the last couple of years, but he and producer Chopra had some creative differences with the final draft. Both had different visions and decided to part amicably.
And now while Hirani directs the movie, it is Abhijat Joshi (writer of films like ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘PK’, ‘Kareeb’, ‘Wazir’ and ‘Mission Kashmir’ among others), who has been roped in as the writer of ‘Munnabhai Chale Dilli’.
Well, let’s just wait for the third outing of Munna and Circuit then. It has been too long already.
