It has been a decade since the last Munnabhai film hit the theatres in 2006. And without a doubt, the fans have been eagerly waiting for the next Munnabhai film. However, after the trailer of Munnabhai Chale Amreeka nothing went on the floors. Moreover, the team even stopped the filming of the sequel – Munnabhai Chale Amreeka.
However, we have an interesting scoop for all the Munnabhai and Circuit Lovers –
The Sequel of Lage Raho Munnabhai Will Soon Go on Floors
But just when the fans were thinking that there wouldn’t be another Munnabhai film, Rajkumar Hirani is all set to surprise the audience. Well, the filmmaker has promised to bring Munnabhai back on the big screen. Yes, finally, it’s time to rejoice – Not because Sanjay Dutt will soon be out of jail but because the actor will give us another Munnabhai film along with Arshad Warsi in the third film of Munnabhai series. Well, the lead cast too has been confirmed by Rajkumari Hirani himself.
The Team Will Be the Same
Both Rajkumar Hirani and Abhijat Joshi who have worked on 3 Idiots and PK, post Lage Raho Munnabhai will come together for the 3rd film in the Munnaibhai series.Says Abhijat,
“We have found an idea for the next Munnabhai movie, which we think is as good as Lage Raho Munnabhai. For all these years we were not going ahead with it because none of the ideas were standing up to that level of Lage Raho Munnabhai. So we attempted various things.”
Will Munnabhai 3 Will Be Munnabhai Chale Amreeka?
Well, no! The reason being when the makers decided to do Munnabhai Chale Amreeka, Yashraj Films released ‘My Name Is Khan’ around the same time. Coincidently, My Name is Khan’s idea was quite familiar to Hirani and Joshi’s idea. So, they dropped the concept completely, and for the last 10 years, both Hirani and Joshi were busy toying with various things. Interestingly, this year, for the first time they had some Eureka moments, so stunning that they now think that they can make a film which can be as brilliant as Lage Raho Munnabhai.
What Will Be the Plot of the Munnabhai Movie?
When asked what can be possible plot of the film Abhijat refused to spill any beans. All he said was –
“I can’t reveal anything more, but I can definitely say that the idea is up there with Lage Raho Munnabhai. That’s why we are committed to writing it. It will take about six more months to finish it.”
Will the cast remain the same?
“As confirmed by Rajkumar Hirani, the cast will remain the same – Sanjay Dutt and Arshad WArsi in the lead roles. Wondering, who would be the heroine? Well, ‘she’ will only be finalized when the script is ready. Both the Munnabhai films had different actress – Gracy Singh in the first and Vidya Balan in the second.
But, but, but, the Fans Have to Wait a While……
Though the makers of the Munnabhai series have confirmed the news, the fans will have to wait patiently. The reason being, the director is busy shooting for the Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor. Munnabhai 3 will only happen once the filmmaker is completely done with the biopic.
