Munnabhai 3 has been in the pipeline for a long time. Finally the producer of the Munnabhai series, Vidhu Vinod Chopra has revealed that the work on the third installment of the francise will start next year.
“It will go on floors next year. I am writing it,” Chopra told PTI when asked about the status of Munnabhai 3.
Loved by the audiences as The character of Munna Bhai has been loved by the audience. The actor walked out of jail this February after serving a sentence in connection with the 1993 Bombay blasts. On being asked if Munnabhai 3 will lift Dutt’s career, Chopra said, “Yes, sure, absolutely I am hoping. Sanjay is a great actor. He deserves the best.”
Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, the Munnabhai series follows the comic adventures of Munnabhai aka Murli Prasad Sharma and his sidekick Circuit, played by Arshad Warsi. Asked if he feels a sense of pressure surrounding the forthcoming project, Chopra replied in negative, saying he is “too lazy to think about pressure.”
“I believe in writing a good story. I don’t think anything else. I believe in chasing excellence and not success as said in 3 Idiots,” he added.
The first two parts were helmed by Rajkumar Hirani. It will be interesting to see that who will be in the director’s seat for the third part as Raju Hirani will be busy in Sanjay Dutt biopic next year.
