The first part of the ‘Munna Bhai’ franchise ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S’ won lots of hearts, awards and appreciation in the industry, which starred Sanjay Dutt, Boman Irani, Arshad Warsi and Gracy Singh in the lead roles.
The second part ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ with the same cast – except for Gracy Singh being replaced by ‘Vidya Balan’ in the female lead – was a much bigger hit than the previous one as it knew how to capture the hearts of the audience by picking up a simple and common topic. The movie’s concept of ‘Gandhigiri’ took off well.
Finally coming from the director of the movie ‘Rajkumar Hirani’ who has till now kept his record of not delivering a flop officially announced the plan of filming the third and the last part, according to a report in Hindustan Times.
Munnabhai series had lots of comedy and emotion in it which is why it is great news to hear the director’s announcement to make the third part. There was a lot of news of part three to be named as ‘Munnabhai Chale Amerika’ but this will not be the name after all.
Hirani in an interview with Outlook 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. We started on it immediately after finishing Lage Raho Munna Bhai. We even shot a trailer. It was a funny script but the second half didn’t work out. I will surely make one more Munna Bhai.”
There is official confirmation from the director that this will be his last Munna Bhai movie after which someone else can take it ahead.
Raju Hirani told Mumbai Mirror why in the first place it took so much time, “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.”
