After Lage Raho Munnabhai released in 2006, director Rajkumar Hirani immediately released the trailer of Munnabhai Chale Amrika, which was supposed to be the third part in the Munnabhai series.
Unfortunately though, that film was shelved and Hirani moved on to make 3 Idiots – which remains the biggest box office blockbuster in history, 2 years after it’s release.
Aamir Khan in a recent interview said, he wouldn’t want to act in a Munnabhai film, since he simply cannot imagine anyone else apart from Sanjay Dutt playing the iconic character of Munna.
With rumors of Rajkumar Hirani signing Aamir for his next, we wonder what it means to the Munnabhai series? Will producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra opt for someone else to direct the next Munnabhai film? Or will he wait for Hirani till he’s done with his next with Aamir? As it’s pretty evident, age too isn’t on Dutt’s side as the actor turned 52 recently and it’s hard to imagine him playing Munna 4 – 5 years from now.
Will we ever get to see another Munnabhai movie?
