Rajkumar Hirani is currently busy with the shoot of Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, starring Ranbir Kapoor. The director has also confirmed the third part of Munna Bhai series.

In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, the director said that he will be going to make Munna Bhai 3 once Dutt biopic is completed however also revealed that it will be the last film in the series, “I’m going to make just one more.”

The daily reports that since the release of Lage Raho Munna Bhai in 2006, he has five half-written Munna Bhai scripts lying with him. “I could’ve taken any of them and released another film, knowing people would watch it. But I don’t want to make a Munna Bhai which is not as good, if not better, than the previous two. I’m going to make just one more after which someone else can take the franchise forward and it has to be equally good,” he asserts.

A third of the Munna Bhai series, the film was titled Munna Bhai Chale America. The title was announced by the director himself in 2010 but film was shelved because of Sanjay’s arrest in 2013. Now Hirani has revealed that Abhijat Joshi, the writer, has already started work on the film’s script. And hopefully, right after the wrap of Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, Hirani would start working on Munna Bhai 3.

Arshad Warsi, who will reprise the much loved character of ‘Circuit’ in the third film in the Munnabhai franchise, said the script for the third installment is ready.

“Rajkumar Hirani spoke to me. He gave an idea about the story and it is just superb. The story is very much relevant in today’s time. The script is ready. As soon as the biopic is done, we will start shooting it in 2018.”

“You will soon see the same innocent idiots coming up with a social issue once again. They will make you see the world we want to see. The film will be very sweet and lovely. It’s good that Raju told everybody about this. It’s nice. It will be great fun. It’s a great script. The thought is beautiful. That’s what Raju looks for. He likes a good thought and then weaves a beautiful story around it.”

Talking about Munnabhai Chale America said, “That (Munnabhai Chale America) was another fabulous script. It had such funny and emotional moments. It was unbelievable. Raju is very dedicated to his work. He works so hard but if it’s not coming along well, he will drop it. He had a problem with the second half of the film. I wish somebody should make it. Or they should just go back, rework and make it. That was just a beautiful script.”
