After Shikara, Vidhu Vinod Chopra is planning Munna Bhai 3

After Shikara,  Vidhu Vinod Chopra is planning Munna Bhai 3Mumbai, Feb 2 (IANS) Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra says his latest film “Shikara”, based on the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from the Kashmir Valley, was an intense experience, and adds that he will now focus on a new “Munna Bhai” project because he wants to make a fun film.

“I really want to make ”Munna Bhai”. It (Shikara) was a very tiring film because it was very close to my heart. I want to make some fun films now. I have been wanting to do ”Munna Bhai” from a long time. Now finally, we have something that I would want to do,” said Chopra, at a promotional event for “Shikara”.

The “Munna Bhai” franchise comprises the blockbusters, “Munna Bhai MBBS” (2003) and “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” (2006). Both films were directed by Rajkumar Hirani, and starred Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi as Munna Bhai and Circuit respectively.

As producer, would he bring back the same cast and crew after all nearly a decade and a half? “It (”Munna Bhai 3”) will be with Sanjay (Dutt) and yes, hopefully, all of them will be there,” he replied.

Asked if he had a tentative date in mind for his new “Munna Bhai” project, Chopra replied: “How can I say that? I am going to work on it from 10th (February). We have got the right idea but we have to work on that. I can”t say how much time it will take to make but I really want to make it, because wherever I go people ask me about it. Even at the airport, people keep asking me, ”when will Munna Bhai come?” (laughs). So, we have to make it before people get upset with us!”
