Writer-director Rajkumar Hirani says that he is rewriting Munnabhai 3 script as he was not happy with the first draft. Since, he started writing PeeKay, the Munnabhai 3 script was kept on the backburner. Now that Peekay is finalised and going on floors in October with Aamir Khan andImran Khan playing lead roles, Hiran says he is now free and giving a fresh touch to the Munnabhai 3 script.
There was news that producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra may go ahead with Munnabhai 3 with either Habib Faisal orMh Rajesh apuskar directing it. But, Hirani clarifies that he will complete the Munnabhai trilogy with the third edition also featuring Sanjay Dutt as Munnabhai and Arshad Warsi as Circuit. However, Munnabhai 3 will go into production only after Hirani completes Peekay.
Hirani is an alumni of the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune in film editing. His film 3 idiots became the highest grosser in Indian cinema shattering all records across Indian and overseas markets.
