Munna Bhai Chale Amerika - 3rd of Film "Munna Bhai"
sanjay dutt & arshad warsi in comic role!
God Save Amerika :D
Munnabhai Chale Amerika got shelved when fans of the adorable goon eagerly awaited his third adventure.
This happened because thematically similar Shah Rukh Khan starrer My Name Is Khan released around the same time.
However, Munnabhai is ready to move on with his adventures now that Rajkumar Hirani has confirmed that he is working on the script for the third film in the series.
Hirani recently returned from the US, not from a holiday, but with an entirely new script for the third part in the Munnabhai series.
It was, in fact, reported that Hirani had quit the idea of making the third part and hence was working on another script.
This, however, does not hold true anymore. "Hirani has been working on the Munnabhai script with his writer Abhijat Joshi in the US and they will soon declare the film.
They are planning to go ahead with the film in February next year with Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi while the leading ladies are still to be decided," says a source.
Hirani confirmed the news over a text message, "I am writing it and will direct it as and when the script is ready."
While Hirani was away, rumours that producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra may hand over the directorial reigns of the film to good friend and director of Do Dooni Chaar Habib Faisal were doing the rounds back home.
"Habib and Vidhu Chopra have met a few times recently and spoken over the film and there is a steady progress," said a industry insider. Interestingly, Faisal declined to comment saying, "At this stage I have nothing to say about your query."
While his answer yet again could start a series of speculations, what's confirmed is that Munnabhai is definitely making a comeback. Watch this space to know who gets to hold the directorial rein.
