Producer of the popular “Munnabhai” series, Vidhu Vinod Chopra today said the work on the third installment of the francise will start next year.

“It will come next year (go on floors). I am writing it,” Chopra told PTI when asked about the status of “Munnabhai 3”.

Loved by the audiences as ‘Munna Bhai’, actor Sanjay Dutt walked out of jail this February after serving a sentence in connection with the 1993 serial Bombay blasts.

On being asked if “Munnabhai 3” will lift Dutt’s career, Chopra said, “Yes, sure, absolutely I am hoping (it does). Sanjay is a great actor. He deserves the best.”

Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, the Munnabhai series follows the comic adventures of Munnabhai aka Murli Prasad Sharma and his sidekick Circuit, played by Arshad Warsi.

Asked if he feels a sense of pressure surrounding the forthcoming project, Chopra replied in negative, saying he is “too lazy to think about pressure.”

“I believe in writing a good story. I don’t think anything else. I believe in chasing excellence and not success as said in (his film) ‘3 Idiots’,” he added.

Chopra was talking on the sidelines of the Jagran Film Festival here.
