Vidhu Vinod Chopra clears the air regarding third installment of ‘Munna Bhai’; Read Details
One of the most loved sequels of Indian cinema is Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Munna Bhai’ and there is no doubt in it. After the success of ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S’ and ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’, news of the third installment of the ‘Munna Bhai’ series has been doing the rounds for quite some time now. Since the release of ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’, there hasn’t been a single public event where Vidhu Vinod Chopra hasn’t been asked about the third installment.
Giving a sigh of relief to the fans of Munna Bhai and Circuit, Vidhu Vinod Chopra has finally given a green signal to the third installment of the ‘Munna Bhai’. In an interview with indianexpress.com, Vidhu Vinod Chopra revealed that if all goes well, then the film will go on floors later this year.
The filmmaker said, “I haven’t yet made my next ‘Munna Bhai’ because I didn’t get a proper script. I hope I make it this year.”
It is, however, uncertain if director Rajkumar Hirani will return to direct the third installment of ‘Munna Bhai’ owing to an allegation of sexual harassment against him.
Earlier in an interview, Arshad Warsi confirmed that he will be a part of the third part. As quoted by news agency PTI, Arshad had said, “I do know that the script is pretty much ready. I do know from Raju [Rajkumar Hirani] that the film will go on floors this year – either mid or the end of the year. The work on the script is going on. As of now, yes it’s Sanju and me. These are the things I’ve been told.”
In the year 2016, Vidhu Vinod Chopra had announced that the third installment of Munna Bhai will begin in 2017. However, the project got delayed.
It is to be noted that Vidhu Vinod Chopra is currently riding high on the success and critical appreciation for his latest film, ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’. The film is directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar.
