Munna is all set to make his return on the big screen as Sanjay Dutt confirms the release of Munna Bhai 3. The Munna Bhai franchise stood out as a positive turn around in the career of Sanjay Dutt. Munna Bhai MBBS was released in 2003 under the direction of Rajkumar Hirani followed by the sequel Lage Raho Munna Bhai. His character Munna aka Murali Prasad Sharma received a lot of appreciation from the audience and critics.
Sanjay Dutt says that he will focus on only next movie of Munna Bhai series after Bhoomi. Both the previous movies of the franchise, Munna Bhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munna Bhai were blockbusters on the silver screen. It is now time for all the fans and the star to enjoy the moment as it is finalized. Meanwhile, the makers are writing the script for this third installment.
At the recent trailer launch event of his upcoming film, Bhoomi, the Bollywood actor acknowledged that the next movie he would love to work on is Munna Bhai. He said in the front of the press:
“Instead of asking me, ask my brother who is sitting here (Vidhu Vinod Chopra), and Rajkumar Hirani, and my third brother sitting there.”
Vidhu Vinod Chopra talked about the movie and said:
“Just ask him (directing writer Abhijat Joshi) that question. He is still writing. We have been writing for three years.”
In addition to this, he said:
“He (Sanjay Dutt) was getting bored sitting at home, how much more we could’ve made him wait. Whenever he asked, ‘is it happening?’, we said, ‘Yes sir it’s happening’. So we will start the film as soon as the script is ready.”
Regarding the film, Rajkumar Hirani said:
“I’ve made four films by now, three of which feature him. My fifth one is about him (referring to a biopic on Sanjay Dutt). He has inspired me. He made Munna Bhai great. I really wouldn’t have been what I am without Sanju. We have been waiting to see Sanju the actor.”
