The makers of the popular Munna Bhai franchise, Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra, officially announced that they will wait for the real “Munna Bhai” Sanjay Dutt to come out of the prison after serving his sentence to make the third film. Dutt has also expressed a desire to return to the “Munna Bhai” once he is set free.
“Just two days back Sanjay called and said, ‘It’s tough to be in prison but I’m ready to go there because when I come back, I will experience freedom in its true sense. I will be rid of this monkey who has been sitting on my back for the last 20 years and scaring me’. When I walk out of prison, I want to walk straight onto the sets of ‘Munna Bhai’,” Hirani and Chopra said in a joint statement.
Hirani and Chopra, who made Munnabhai M.B.B.S. (2003) and Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) with Sanjay in the lead, are ready to wait.
“The reel ‘Munna Bhai’ will wait for the real ‘Munna Bhai’. He will indeed walk on the sets of the next Munnabhai as he comes back to us free,” they added.
