2018 is the year of Sanjay Dutt fans. Arshad Warsi and Sanjay Dutt have confirmed that ‘Munnabhai 3’ will be releasing in 2018.
The third movie in the famed Munnabhai series, ‘Munnabhai 3’ will be made and the movie makers are waiting for the protagonist, Sanjay Dutt, to be released from the jail. Arshad Warsi, who plays the character of ‘Circuit’, commented,
Yes, ‘Munna Bhai 3’ will be made for sure. There is no doubt about that. The script is almost ready and we are waiting for him to come back and relax and then we will start working on it.
The earlier two versions, ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ and ‘Munnabhai M.B.B.S’, were blockbusters. At a recent trailer launch of Dutt’s movie, ‘Bhoomi’, the actor acknowledged that the third version will soon be under production.
Instead of asking me, ask my brother who is sitting here (Vidhu Vinod Chopra), and Rajkumar Hirani, and my third brother sitting there.
The producer, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, said,
He (Sanjay Dutt) was getting bored sitting at home, how much more we could’ve made him wait. Whenever he asked, ‘is it happening?’, we said, ‘Yes sir it’s happening’. So we will start the film as soon as the script is ready.
In the same event, Rajkumar Hirani also mentioned that he is planning on making a biopic on Sanjay Dutt. Hirani said,
I’ve made four films by now, three of which feature him. My fifth one is about him (referring to a biopic on Sanjay Dutt). He has inspired me. He made Munna Bhai great. I really wouldn’t have been what I am without Sanju. We have been waiting to see Sanju the actor.
Well, we have to now eagerly wait for the ‘Munnabhai 3’ to make us cry with laughter.
