The iconic doctor, Munna Bhai, is back with his trademark jadoo ki jhappi!
According to Hindustan Times, film-maker Rajkumar Hirani revealed that a third instalment of Munna Bhai is in the pipeline. And we’re thrilled to know that Sanjay Dutt will be resuming the role of Munna Bhai in the sequel.
“I am writing a script for Munna Bhai 3. Sanju will star in it, and will play his age. I spoke to him [about the film when he came out on parole recently], and he was very excited,” said the director.

His next film is a biopic on Sanjay, starring Ranbir Kapoor, but he is working on two other scripts simultaneously.
“I have a couple of ideas, so I am writing two more scripts besides Sanju’s biopic. While one is a Munna Bhai film, there’s also another new story,” he added.
While we wait in anticipation for the third part, we wonder whether it will be a smashing success like Munna Bhai MBBS (2003) and Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), Rajkumar believes it will be even better.
“Now, I have found a story that is as good as Lage Raho Munna Bhai, or maybe even better,” he said.
There were rumours a few years ago that the third installment will see the much-loved duo — Munna Bhai and Ciruit — heading off to the US. However, the director hasn’t confirmed any such news.

“I wasn’t doing it (the third part) because I hadn’t found anything that matched that level. However, now I have found it, but it will take some time to write it. I plan to take it up after wrapping up Sanju’s biopic,” said Rajkumar.
