Seems like the New Year is bringing in more cheer for Bollywood buffs than we anticipated! One of the most awaited sequels and one of the biggest movie franchises, 'Munnabhai' is coming back and for good!
The first installment, 'Munnabhai MBBS', paved way for how happiness and cheer was perceived in Bollywood and Raju Hirani instantly became everyone's favourite director. The movie also established a cult bromance between Sanjay Dutt and his side kick 'Circuit', Arshad Warsi. The second installment 'Lage Raho Munnabhai' had Sanjay Dutt practicing Gandhian philosophy after being inspired by 'Bapu' himself.
After the huge success of the second movie, the third movie was eagerly awaited but due to Sanjay Dutt's sudden jail sentence being announced, all plans were shelved. However, almost 13 years later, fans are rejoicing after during a recent interview, Arshad Warsi confirmed that the script was ready and the movie was going on floors very soon. “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. I tend to do my film and forget about my character and I move on to the next one. I tend to forget, which is what happened with Munna Bhai. When I came for the second part, I was doing the same role differently. I realised something isn't quite right. Then Raju and I saw a couple of scenes from the first one and remembered how I should be doing. This time too, I'm sure I'll do it.”
