If there is one movie, almost everyone is eagerly awaiting it's the third film in the much loved Munna Bhai franchise. Since the time, Lage Raho Munna Bhai hit gold at the box office, back in 2006, fans have been waiting for a sequel. After that, Rajkumar Hirani started working on the script of Munna Bhai Chale America. It was then reported that a new script is being written and Jolly LLB fame Subhash Kapoor will helm the project. But then Sanjay Dutt was awarded the jail term and now that he has returned, speculations are rife again. Rajkumar Hirani, who's currently shooting for Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor cleared the air about the thrid film and there is a good news for all the fans. Talking to Mumbai Mirror he revealed that he has five half written scripts with him, he says, "I could've taken any of them and released another film, knowing people would watch it. But I don't want to make a Munna Bhai which is not as good, if not better, than the previous two. I'm going to make just one more after which someone else can take the franchise forward and it has to be equally good."

"Now, while I am shooting this film, Abhijat is working on the script of Munna Bhai 3. Hopefully, by the time I'm done with the biopic, it'll be ready and I can jump into it in the new year. It's a great idea and in the same territory as the other two, but still just a half-worked idea," he admits. Talking about Munna Bhai Chale America he says, "We started on it immediately after finishing Lage Raho Munna Bhai. We even shot a trailer. It was a funny script but the second half didn't work out. I will surely make one more Munna Bhai." He also added that this is not that script but a new journey. "It's too early to say where it is going, but I had a great time working with Sanjay and Arshad earlier and I wanted to continue with them. The topic is such that it will suit an older Sanjay and Arshad. Physically Munna and Circuit might change a bit but they will continue to be my divine fools."
