Munna Bhai 3:
Sanjay Dutt starrer Munna Bhai might get a sequel almost after a decade. His co-actor Arshad Warsi in an interview claimed, “if everything falls into place, the third installment of the ‘Munna Bhai’ franchise will go on floors by the end of the year”. Munna Bhai MBBS, which is directed by Rajkumar Hirani. The previous two films record the story of a cordial thug (played by Sanjay Dutt), and his loyal assistant Circuit (played by Arshad Warsi), together took on the code of conduct and conditions of the hospital and also the depreciating values that Mahatma Gandhi taught.
When questioned about the third installment of the film, Arshad told PTI,
“I do know that the script is pretty much ready. I do know from Raju 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.”
The first film ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ was released back in 2003 and its sequel ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ was released in 2006. Though this time there is a gap of more than a decade and the circuit of the film says “it’s slightly ‘scary’ to pick up the character from where I left.” He confesses,
“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 ‘Munnabhai.’ When I came for the second part, I was doing the same role differently. I realized 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.”
Apart from this, on the promotional events of his upcoming comedy film Fraud Saiyaan, directed by Sourabh Shrivastava, when asked about the status of ‘Golmaal 5’ he says, “it will also happen soon.” The whole ‘Golmaal’ squad had a cameo in a song of Rohit Shetty’s recent film ‘Simmba’, where they gave hint about the upcoming installment of the Golmaal film series. “That will happen too.
