In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.’s producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra explains why he has not made Munna Bhai 3. Actually, Chopra and the director Rajkumar Hirani never went ahead with the idea of making Munna Bhai 3.
Chopra said, “Our joy comes from creating cinema. Our joy comes from striving for excellence. Honestly, I have not made the third Munnabhai, which will get me how many crores you can ask industry experts, because I still don’t have a script I like, then I must be crazy. Abhijat(Joshi) is mad, so is Raju Hirani. We all are mad. We are seeking happiness and joy which we believe is beyond money.”
Also, about a month ago, Arshad Warsi told Bollywood Hungama, “I don’t think Munnabhai 3 will be made. It has been too long. If something has to happen, it happens, but if it takes so long then it is slightly(Arshad trails off)…Vinod and Raju want to do it. I am going to rob the script from him(Rajkumar Hirani). He has got three scripts which are 90% completed. They are beautiful scripts. I’ll rob it from him and make it myself because he got the script, Sanju is there, people want to see it but no one is making it. So, this is the scene. Maybe one day Raju will come and say the script is ready, let’s do it. But it’s my personal view, I doubt it.”
Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. was a comedy drama film released in 2003. It’s comedy scenes can still refresh one’s mind.
