Sanjay Dutt has stepped into the Marathi film production world with ‘Baba’ and he was seen at the trailer launch of the film in Mumbai on Tuesday, accompanied by his wife Maanayata Dutt. At the event, Sanjay Dutt said he was eagerly waiting to start shooting for the much awaited third installment of the ‘Munna Bhai’ film series.

While interacting with the media there, he was asked about his most memorable blockbuster hit ‘Munna Bhai’ series and he said, “I pray to God it happens soon but this should be asked from Mr. Raju Hirani (Raj Kumar Hirani) director of ‘Munna Bhai…’ series. I think he would be in a better position to answer this question. I am eagerly waiting to start shooting.

The reports of sexual harassment against filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani have been doing the rounds and following that, there are rumours that the third instalment of the ‘Munna Bhai’ series has been put on hold until he does not get a clean chit against all the #MeToo allegations.

Sanjay Dutt was also asked about the kind of films he would like to do in the future and he said, “Now, I can’t dance around trees and do romance with girls but I will do some great characters like Mel Gibson and Denzel Washington do in Hollywood films.” He added, “I have had a very long and beautiful journey since my first film ‘Rocky’. I learnt a lot in that process because I worked with some of the great actors from the industry.
