“Munnabhai 3” in the offing
“Munnabhai M.B.B.S.” (2003) and “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” (2006) starring Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi have been huge hits.
The producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and the director Rajkumar Hirani have planned a prequel to the successful Munnabhai series titled “Munnabhai Chale Amerika” which features the same set of actors.
This film would have been completed by now but for the other commitments of Sanjay Dutt and particularly his conviction for illegal possession of arms in connection with the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts.
Now that Sanjay Dutt is out on bail and doing other films, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani plan to launch “Munnabhai Chale Amerika” as soon as Sanjay Dutt completes his present film assignments.
