The Munna Bhai film series, which began with the release of ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S’ in the year 2003 and was followed by 2003 blockbuster ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’, is one of the most loved movie franchises Bollywood has ever produced. It’s the same film franchise which resurrected Sanjay Dutt’s moribund career and brought him back in the reckoning. Talks about the third instalment of the series have been there for years now. However, if buzz is anything to go by, the makers have now finally decided to roll the movie soon.
If reports are to be believed, after the earth-shattering success of ‘Sanju’ (2018), filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who helmed ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S’ and ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’, is planning to begin work on the next part of the Munna Bhai series. The work on the script has already begun. We also hear that Hirani is so impressed with Ranbir Kapoor’s impassioned performance in ‘Sanju’ that he might rope in the young actor to play an important role in ‘Munna Bhai 3’. Yes, you heard that right!
A source close to the makers informed a premiere entertainment magazine that Hirani may rope in Ranbir Kapoor to play the role of Circuit alongside Sanjay Dutt in the film. In the previous instalments of the movie, Arshad Warsi had played the popular character. “Seeing Ranbir’s performance in ‘Sanju’ everyone is impressed. The makers believe Ranbir and Sanjay will share great on-screen chemistry considering their rapport with each other,” said a source.
Well, it will be really interesting to see whether or not the audience likes Ranbir Kapoor in the role of Circuit which has been sort of immortalized by Arshad Warsi.
Talking about Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming projects, the actor is currently shooting for Dharma Productions’ ‘Brahmastra’, also starring Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy. His next will be Yash Raj Films’ ‘Shamshera’, co-starring Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor.
