Rajkumar Hirani’s Munna Bhai MBBS released in 2003 and it was a big hit at the box office. In the film, Sanjay Dutt highlighted as a local goon Murli Prasad Sharma, who insists on becoming a doctor to retaliate for his father, who was humiliated by the dean of a medical college. In 2006, Munna Bhai MBBS was followed by a sequel titled Lage Raho Munna Bhai, in which Murli Prasad Sharma pretended to be a history professor to impress the love of his life.
Vinod Chopra said that Abhijat Joshi is still writing Munna Bhai 3’s story.
Mr Chopra added, “Sanjay Dutt was getting bored sitting at home. How much more we could’ve made him wait. Whenever he asked, ‘Is it happening? We said, ‘Yes sir it’s happening.’ So, we will start the film as soon as the script is ready.
Sanjay Dutt said that both director Rajkumar Hirani and writer Abhijat Joshi, along with his friends and family, have been with him through the thick and thin and he cannot wait to start the next Munna Bhai movie with them.
The 58-year-old actor also added, “Raju and Abhijat have given me the best film of my life and that’s Munna Bhai MBBS. After Bhoomi, I won’t do anything else and just focus on Munna Bhai 3.”
Director Rajkumar Hirani and Sanjay Dutt have worked together in films like PK and the Munna Bhai series.
