Rajkumar Hirani may be leaving no stone unturned to promote his upcoming directorial Sanju, but there is one question the filmmaker still inevitably gets asked: "When will the next Munna Bhai film happen?" The Munna Bhai series-- Munna Bhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munna Bhai-- which follows the comic adventures of Murli Prasad Sharma aka Munna bhai (played by Sanjay Dutt) and his sidekick Circuit (Arshad Warsi), still remain two of the most memorable films in Hirani's filmography.

In a recent interview with Outlook, the director finally broke the silence over the threequel in the super hit comedy film franchise, saying "We wanted to do the third Munna Bhai film and even wrote a lot of it, but we were not able to match the script with the first two. Now, I have found something, though we still have to write it.”

Talking about the success of the two films, Hirani said, “We were all new and naive at the time. While we were filming 'Munna Bhai MBBS', we didn’t think we were doing some kind of mainstream cinema. I only knew that I was doing a different kind of cinema. More than its commercial success, it fetched us a lot of love and affection from people. I was happy that my family and friends saw it. That joy itself was enough. Never in my life had I thought of anything like this.”

In an earlier interview with PTI, Abhijat Joshi (the co-writer of both Munna Bhai films), had talked about the third part. “The toughest thing is to match up to what we did in 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai'. We are looking at something that will match the standards of ‘Lage Raho…’. We have an idea in place. It is something new and different," Joshi had said.

Meanwhile, Hirani is currently gearing up for the release of Sanju. Based on the life of Sanjay Dutt, the film has Ranbir Kapoor portraying the Khalnayak star and showcases the various facets of the yesteryear actor's life.
