Subhash Kapoor, who will be directing the third installment of the ‘Munnabhai’ franchise, revealed that the third movie will go on floors early next year.
“Right now, I am completely tied up with ‘Jolly LLB’ and after the film's release; we will start scripting for Munnabhai. So most probably the film will go on the floors early next year," Subhash Kapoor told IANS.
The first two movies from the franchise- ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S’ and ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ were both directed by Rajkumar Hirani. But recently Subhash Kapoor, of ‘Phas Gaya Re Obama’ fame, was signed to direct the third film.
The director denied that the third movie was titled ‘Munna Bhai Chale Delhi’.
“I don't know from where this ‘Munna Bhai Chale Delhi’ has come from. Nothing has been finalized yet. Once Raju Hirani gets free from ‘Peekay’, we will sit together and discuss the film,” said Subhash Kapoor.
“Right now only one thing has been finalized that I will be direct the film. Nothing more than that," he added.
Subhash Kapoor did confirm that Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi will reprise their roles as Munna and Circuit.
“Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi will be part of the film,” he said.
He also said that the female lead will only be decided upon when the scripting of the movie is done.
“The leading lady will be finalized as the script shapes up,” he concluded.
The movie will be produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who produced the first two movies.
