Mumbai: If all goes well, Munna Bhai MBBS 3 will go on floors later this year, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra informed the media on Sunday.
“I haven’t yet made my next Munna Bhai because I didn’t get a proper script. I hope I make it this year,” Chopra said while asserting that he has never bowed down to the demands of the market.
It is, however, uncertain if director Rajkumar Hirani will return to direct the next installment owing to an allegation of sexual harassment against him.
Chopra, who has produced all of Hirani’s films including Munna Bhai franchise, has neither broken silence on the allegation nor announced if the latter will helm Munna Bhai 3.
Since Lage Raho Munna Bhai released in 2006, there hasn’t been a single public event where filmmaker Chopra hasn’t been asked about the third installment of the Munna Bhai franchise. However, the producer has always maintained that he wouldn’t make the film until he finds a script worth greenlighting, and it seems the wait is over.
