Sanjay-Arshad will continue to be my divine fools; Will make just 1 more Munna Bhai film - Rajkumar Hirani

Two best friends, Munna Bhai and Circuit, and rest is history! Director Rajkumar Hirani had the audience in splits with the first two parts of Munna Bhai series - Munna Bhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munna Bhai. Hirani did kickstart the third part of the series - Munna Bhai Chale Amkica- but it got shelved.

Now Raju, who is currently directing a biopic on Sanjay Dutt's life, is all set to roll the third part of the Munna Bhai series, post he finishes the Ranbir Kaooor starrer. 

In an interaction with a leading daily, Raju spoke about how hopeful he is set to start his 3rd Munna Bhai film bringing back the lovable gangster and his hilarious aide, Circuit. As per Hirani, since the release of both Munna Bhai films, 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 said

Raju further added, "Now, while I am shooting this film, Abhijat (Joshi) is working on the script of Munna Bhai 3. Hopefully, by the time I'm done with the biopic, it'll be ready and I can jump into it in the new year. It's a great idea and in the same territory as the other two, but still just a half-worked idea." 

On the third part, Hirani said, “It's too early to say where it is going, but I had a great time working with Sanjay and Arshad earlier and I wanted to continue with them. The topic is such that it will suit an older Sanjay and Arshad. Physically Munna and Circuit might change a bit but they will continue to be my divine fools."
