Rajkumar Hirani revives Munnabhai Chale Amrika - Mr.Bhat - 07-27-2010

A popular franchise just cannot be disbanded, may it be Superman, Batman or our very own Munnabhai.

After almost drawing the curtains on his next Munnabhai venture Munnabhai Chale Amrika, Rajkumar Hirani has once again revived the idea of making the film for Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

He is now scripting the next Munnabhai with his co-writer Abhijat Joshi. Once it's done, production work will start.

Initially, it was planned that in Mumnnabhai Chale Amrika, Munna and Circuit would go to America to meet its president. But Hirani lost interest after Karan Johar used the same idea of his protagonist meeting the US President in My Name is Khan.

Under tremendous pressure from distributors and also from the masses to bring back Munna, Hirani has planned to revive the film. "Wherever I go, people walk up to me and ask, 'Where is that Munnabhai film, the trailer of which was shown with Eklavya in 2007? Some slightly aggressive people remarked, "Aap ne trailer dikhaya, film kahan hai?," Hirani avers.

"Munna and Circuit are very interesting characters we have created and we can relate many socially relevant subjects using them," Hirani adds.

The new film will see an aged Munnabhai to suit Sanjay's current age and personality.
