Rajkumar: I'll surely make one more Munna Bhai

By Neharika, Bollywood.com News Network

Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Munna Bhai’ film series turned out to be one of the most acclaimed comedy drama series. ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.’ was the first film made under this franchise that released in 2003, followed by ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ in 2006.
 
Ever since the release of the latter, everyone was expecting the third instalment.
Rajkumar Hirani started working on the script of ‘Munna Bhai Chale America’, which was tentatively regarded as the third instalment of the Munna Bhai film series.

It was even reported that Jolly LLB fame Subhash Kapoor will helm the project. The flick didn’t even hit the floors and male lead of the project Sanjay Dutt was awarded the jail term and subsequently, the film was shelved.

However, a new update about is sure to make Sanjay’s fans happy. Hirani, who is currently working on Dutt’s biopic with actor Ranbir Kapoor, has divulged information about Munna Bhai 3.

Talking to Mumbai Mirror he revealed that he has five half written scripts with him, he says, “I could’ve taken any of them and released another film, knowing people would watch it. But I don’t want to make a Munna Bhai which is not as good, if not better, than the previous two. I’m going to make just one more after which someone else can take the franchise forward and it has to be equally good.”

“Now, while I am shooting this film, Abhijat is working on the script of Munna Bhai 3. Hopefully, by the time I’m done with the biopic, it’ll be ready and I can jump into it in the new year. It’s a great idea and in the same territory as the other two, but still just a half-worked idea,” he admits.

Talking about ‘Munna Bhai Chale America’, he says, “We started on it immediately after finishing Lage Raho Munna Bhai. We even shot a trailer. It was a funny script but the second half didn’t work out. I will surely make one more Munna Bhai.”
