Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra scored some massive hits with Munnabhai franchise in the past and though the makers planned the third one of the franchise, it has been put on hold due to various reasons. After two back to back hits like Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munnabhai, now the makers are back with the third one which has been tentatively titled Munnabhai 3 (working title). Sanjay Dutt who has been out from jail will play the lead role.
Rajkumar Hirani happened to narrate the script of the film to Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi recently. The duo loved the script so much that they signed the film on spot. Rajkumar Hirani is currently working on the final draft and an official announcement will be out soon. The regular shoot of Munnabhai 3 will start during the second half of this year. Rajkumari Hirani Films will produce the movie.
