Fans of Sanjay Dutt have been eagerly waiting for the third instalment of the Munna Bhai series. The film has been in the news from the past few years but it is yet to go on the floors. It was last year when Arshad Warsi had stated that the film will go on the floors in 2019, but that didn’t happen.

Now, recently producer of the franchise Vidhu Vinod Chopra opened up about Munna Bhai 3. During a media interaction, he said, “I want to make Munnabhai..’. I want to make some fun films. Finally, we have something that I want to do.”

When asked if the original cast and director Rajkumar Hirani will return to the franchise, Chopra said, “It will definitely be with Sanjay. Hopefully, it will be made with all of them. I am going to work on it from 10 February. We have the correct idea but we have to work on it. I don’t know by when it will be made.”

Sanjay Dutt is not going through a great phase in his career. After coming out from the prison, the actor has starred in five films and all of them turned out to be duds at the box office. This year, he will be seen in movies like Sadak 2, Shamshera, KGF 2, Bhuj: The Pride of India, Prithviraj, and Torbaaz.

Talking about Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the filmmaker is making his directorial comeback with the film Shikara. His last Hindi film as a director was 2007 release Eklavya: The Royal Guard. Shikara is slated to release on 7th February 2020.
