‘Munnabhai Ki Aatma Katha’ not before 2013

Munnabhai fans will have to wait till 2012, the third instalemt of Munnabhai titled ‘Munnabhai Ki Aatma Katha’ will release in 2013,

Though the pre production work is started already, but Rajkumar Hirani won’t be able to take the film on floor soon, the shooting will start in July next year, Source said,

Yes, even though it has been over half a decade that Lagey Raho Munnabhai was released, neither Hirani nor his producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra want to hurry up the affairs. They understand the brand value that the Sanjay Dutt-Arshad Warsi starrer carries and want to give it due respect. They announced Munnabhai Ki Aatma Katha for next year as they wanted to quash all speculations around the film. However the fact remains that it is going through some intense pre-production and only when everything is in place, shooting will begin.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra wants his other production ‘Farrari Ki Sawaari’ and the lead of the film Sharman Joshi to get its due attention, if it gets covered up by Munnabhai sequel, it will be loss for the film, the teaser of the film has already been released and there would be further momentum in promotion as the New Year kick starts,

Source said,

Ferrari Ki Sawaari directed by debutant Rajesh Mapuskar has been confirmed for 27th April release in the middle of IPL. Since the film has cricket as an integral part of it, its arrival during the cricket season is well timed. For next few months all effort would be to prepare for that film and only after it’s release would Munnabhai Ki Aatma Katha begin.
