Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warshi delighted the young and old when they first teamed up as Munna Bhai and Circuit in 2003. The film was a massive hit and further led to its sequel Lage Raho Munnabhai in 2006. Since then, fans of the film's characters have been hoping for a third instalment but there has been no concrete step taken in that direction. Now, in a recent interview, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has revealed what's causing the delay. 

In the last few years, several titled like Munna Bhai chale America or Munna Bhai Chale Dilli have come to the fore. However, nothing has been confirmed by Rajkummar Hirani or Chopra. While speaking to Bollywood Hungama, Chopra revealed the reason why. 

He said, "Our joy comes from creating cinema. Our joy comes from striving for excellence. Honestly, I have not made the third Munna Bhai, which will get me how many crores you can ask industry experts, because I still don't have a script I like, then I must be crazy."

He added, "Abhijat (Joshi) is mad, so is Raju Hirani. We all are mad. We are seeking happiness and joy which we believe is beyond money." 

Back in December 2020, Arshad Warsi who played the much-loved Circuit, also said that he was not too positive about the film being made. While speaking to Hindustan Times, Arshad had said, "Nothing is happening. I think you should all go and go out to Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raju’s house and threaten them to start fast. I don’t know. I don’t think it is going to work. It’s been a bit too long. Raju is busy with other things. I don’t think so. Sad for all of us."
