Back in 2003; Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra, gave movie buffs the iconic character of Munnabhai and Circuit, played by Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi respectively; in the timeless classic Munnabhai M.B.B.S


So loved is their camaraderie that ever since the second installment to the super hit franchise released in 2006; Lage Raho Munnabhai, there has been no such event or appearance of Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani, where the duo have not been asked about a third installment of the franchise.


In a similar instance; Chopra who recently produced ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' which featured Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Sonam Kapoor, Regina Cassandra, and Rajkummar Rao, finally opened up about the third installment to the Munnabhai franchise.


Speaking about the same; Chopra said," I haven't yet made my next Munna Bhai because I didn't get a proper script. I hope I make it this year," while stating that he has never bowed down to the demands of the market.


However; there is uncertainty about director Rajkumar Hirani returning to direct the next installment, owing to an allegation of sexual harassment against him.


While Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani have had the longest standing association; with Chopra producing all of Hiran's directions including the 2 installments of the Munnabhai series as well as Sanju, Hirani has chosen to stay mum about the allegations leveled against Hirani.


When asked to comment about the same during a press conference for Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga; Chopra chose to avoid confrontations and was quoted saying," This stage here is for something else, which is extremely important for us, as important as what you're talking about. This opportunity we should use to talk about this and that of course, when there is a right time, we will talk about it."


But actor Arshad Warsi's interview with Pinkvilla comes as a slight respite; when the actor who plays the character of Circuit in the film was quoted saying," The truth is that the last time I had a chat with Raju (Rajkumar Hirani), he mentioned that the script is being worked on. It's doing well and moving fast and smooth. Hopefully, by the end of 2019, he's planning to start shooting. These are all desires and wishes and they could not be true, or they could happen, could not happen. But that's how it is."


Well, we certainly hope that all goes well and we can get to see our much loved Munnabhai and Circuit recreating their iconic magic on screen soon again!
