“Munna Bhai” that one of the most loved film, has not made any other sequence yet. In 2003, Munna Bhai MBBS was released and its sequel “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” was released in 2006.
Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra said if he makes the third Munna Bhai, it will be a superhit. He also said he must be mad for not making it. He said that even after many people have advised them, they are not doing so because they do not have a good enough script.
Arshad Warsi who played the role of a supporting actor in Munna Bhai with Sanjay Dutt in the main lead said that Munna Bhai 3 seems to be dead. To this, Vidhu in an interview said, “Our joy comes from creating cinema. Our joy comes from striving for excellence. Honestly, I have not made the third Munna Bhai, which will get me how many crores you can ask industry experts because I still don’t have a script I like, then I must be crazy.”
Arshad in a recent interview mentioned that director Rajkumar Hirani was busy with other projects. “Nothing is happening. I think you should all go and go out to Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raju’s house and threaten them to start fast. I don’t know. I don’t think it is going to work. It’s been a bit too long. Raju is busy with other things. I don’t think so,” he said. “Sad for all of us,” he added.
Vidhu in reply said that all this is in Arshad`s head and the third sequel will definitely be made once they a script that suits best is finalized.
“I really want to make Munna Bhai,” he said at a press event for his last film, Shikara. “It (Shikara) was a very tiring film because it was very close to my heart. I want to make some fun films now. I have been wanting to do Munna Bhai for a long time. Now finally, we have something that I would want to do.”
