Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you read right. Fondly called Mamu by his nephew Imran Khan, Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan may well be taking over the bhai with a bada-size role played by Sanjay Dutt in the first two Munnabhai films for the third installment, previously titled Munnabhai Chale Amrika. Right beside him will be friend and co-star Sharman Joshi, stepping into Arshad Warsi’s role of Munna’s faithful friend Circuit. But what about the trailer that was shot and released back in 2007 with Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi?
Unfortunately, even with a concept in hand, the lack of a good script for Munnabhai Chale Amrika was the culprit behind the delay and subsequent shelving of the third installment to the series. Yet, much like the audience that it bowled over, the idea plagued the minds of director-producer combo Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra. So much that whilst shooting 3 Idiots, the duo discussed and considered 2 of their then leading men, Aamir and Sharman to spice up the dust-ridden film and bring it back to life. A consideration both actors have shown keen interest in as well. But once again that is also IF the script pans out.
So will we see Sanjay and Arshad return with the bromistry [brotherly chemistry] that we all fell in love with or will Aamir Khan and Sharman Joshi step in and give the roles a makeover? Only time will tell. In the meantime, all is left to speculation with no one stepping forward with a haan or naa on the change. Lets hope for the return of our favourite Bhai on the big screen.
