Here comes a heart melting new for the fans of ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ series which is considered as the most loved among Sanjay Dutt’s movies.

After the success of ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’, ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’, the 3rd part of the franchise is much-awaited.

The iconic duo Munna Bhai, a kind-hearted goon played by Sanjay Dutt and his trusted sidekick, Circuit played by Arshad Warsi garnered lot of love and appreciation from fans and critics.

After the success of ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’,  the filmmaker RajKumar Hirani had begun working for third part of the series – ‘Munnabhai Chale America’ and even had its teaser out. However, the film had to be shelved due to various reasons including the lead actor Sanjay Dutt serving a jail term over the possession of arms during the Mumbai blasts.

Since Sanjay is back now, Hirani has again started working on ‘Munna Bhai Chale America’ which will be executed as soon as the shooting of Sanjay Dutt’s biopic gets over.

 In an interaction with Mumbai Mirror, Raju Hirani was quoted saying, “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.”

 He further added, “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.”

While talking about ‘Munna Bhai Chale America’ Hirani said, “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.”
