After a long spell of twelve years, the hilarious duo of Munna Bhai and Circuit are set to return to the big screen in the third installment of ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’. The Indian director Rajkumar Hirani has confirmed that the third installment of ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ is on the cards. He stated that Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi would take up their lead roles of ‘Munna Bhai’ and ‘Circuit’ in the movie.
In an interview to a newspaper, Rajkumar Hirani revealed that the script for the third sequel of Munna Bhai is in the process. The previous two installments- Munna Bhai MBBS and ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ were a massive business for the team.
When asked if the franchise ‘Munna Bhai’ will return, Hirani said, “We wanted to do the third Munna Bhai film and even wrote a lot of it, but we were not able to match the script with the first two. Now, I have found something, though we still have to write it.”
Talking about the success of his two films, Hirani said, “We were all new and naive at the time. While we were filming Munna Bhai MBBS, we didn’t think we were doing some kind of mainstream cinema. I only knew that I was doing a different kind of cinema. More than its commercial success, it fetched us a lot of love and affection from people. I was happy that my family and friends saw it. That joy itself was enough. Never in my life had I thought of anything like this.”
His co-author Abhijat Joshi also hinted on the third sequel of Munna Bhai MBBS. He said, ‘the toughest thing is to match up to what we did in Lage Raho Munna Bhai. We are looking at something that will match the standards of ‘Lage Raho…’. We have an idea in place. It is something new and different.’
