Actor Sanjay Dutt, who his fans fondly call Munnabhai after his character name in Munnabhai series, is likely to be kicked out of the third series if the latest news is to be believed. News is doing the rounds that the makers of the hit franchise are planning to show the doors to Dutt and Arshad Warsi in the next instalment of the Munnabhai series to give a new look.
Sources said that producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra is planning to make a complete makeover of his Munnabhai series in spite of the fact Dutt and Arshad were the main force for the stupendous success of the last two Munnabhai films.
It seems the makers of the film want new faces for the film, as Dutt, who recently turned 52, and Arshad will be older by two years by the time the film is ready for release. It is also said that Rajkumar Hirani might not don director"s cap but co-produce the film with a new director. It was reported that Anurag Basu might be roped in to direct the film but nothing has been finalised as of now.
Arshad Warsi had earlier said that the third instalment of the film tentatively titled Munnabhai Chale Amerika would go to the floors soon, and even trailers featuring him and Dutt were shot. But now, we hear that the script has been dropped and that Rajkumar Hirani has written a completely different script.
Well, we are yet to hear from the makers of the film. It will be a bold decision to kick out Dutt and Arshad if the news turns out true!
