Aamir Khan – The New Munnabhai?

The industry is abuzz with rumours of the upcoming Munnabhai film. Sources say, Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi who excelled as Munnabhai and his side-kick circuit in Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munnabhai, will not be a part of the third film.

Instead, director Rajkumar Hirani has been in talks with his 3 Idiots star Aamir Khan to play Munnabhai and Sharman Joshi who was also a part of Hirani’s last film could be playing the role of circuit. 

While this is still just a rumour, we wonder if Aamir can pull-off a Munnabhai like character. Having watched and loved both the Munnabhai films, it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing those iconic characters. Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi were not just brilliant, they were flawless.

Few questions for you to answer, we’d love to know what you think

  • Do we really need a fresh cast for the new Munnabhai film?
  • Is Sanjay Dutt too old to play the character of Munna?
  • Aamir Khan has played a tapori character of ‘Munna’ in Rangeela and he was brilliant. But replacing Sanjay Dutt as Munnabhai? What do you think?


  • A day before yesterday Aamir denied this rumour, saying that Vino abd Rajukumar never talk to him about this role, and if they doing that, he will give them the number of Sanju (Sanjay Dutt), because no one can be MunnaBhai excepting Sanjay :)

  • the team,
    sice sanjay and arshad has played the roles in 1 and 2 nd part its difficult to change in mind of people ,I suggest the same team ,

  • Well i wish this is false, not because Aamir will not pull off the role but because people actually loved Sunju n Arshad in their roles so i doubt if they will accept a new Munnabhai and Circuit.

  • i dont think amir is good enough for the munnabhai 3rd session…. sanju n arshad rocks….. if amir come than definetly the movie sucks…….

  • Aamir was brilliant as Tapori(munnabhai) in Rangeela(1995), and rocked in AAA(1994)…all before this Munnabhai series came out. So why can’t he mix both and create his own version of Munnabhai what is so damn difficult about Munnabhai Role?
    And remember Aamir can do any role.
