Sanjay Dutt aka Munnabhai and Arshad Warsi aka Circuit often say that the third part is under way but according to an insider, “No Munnabhai film is even being written.”
“Since Raju and Vinod had to can the ‘Munnabhai Chale Amrika’ script after their idea was used in Karan Johar’s ‘My Name in Khan’, these two filmmakers have mentally drawn the curtains on Munnabhai. They see no way to keep this character alive,” says a source.
Moreover, the trio is busy with their respective projects. Vidhu Vinod Chopra will start his ‘Broken Horses’ in September this year while Rajkumar Hirani and Abhijat Joshi are busy likewise with other scripts.
