Munna Bhai = Aamir Bhai = Risk!
Aamir Khan may be starring as “Munnabhai” in the Munnabhai Chale Amerika film. Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra introduced the idea to Aamir on the sets of 3 Idiots. Mr. Khan seems to be very keen on the idea and could be co-starring with Sharman Joshi in place of Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi. The only concern Aamir seems to have is the possibility of upsetting Mr. Dutt as he is a very good friend of Khan’s.
Has anyone ever thought that Sanjay Dutt is the very essence of the MunnaBhai brand? Despite how talented Aamir Khan is, he may be taking a risk trying to mimic the humor and appeal that Sanjay Dutt brought to the film.
What are your thoughts?
Looks like Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Aamir Khan are keen on working with each other once again after the success of 3 Idiots. And if all goes well, Aamir will be seen in the next Munnabhai film. Munnabhai Chale Amerika which was to star the original pair of Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, will now reportedly star Aamir Khan and Sharman Joshi.
A source says, “Vidhu discussed the idea of Munnabhai-3 with Aamir during the making of 3 Idiots. Aamir loved the idea, but wasn’t sure if it was a right move since Dutt is his good friend. However, Vidhu assured him that he would speak to Dutt about it soon. Aamir, Raju and Vidhu are said to be busy with discussions right now. Aamir has just left for the Sundance Film Festival, where his film Peepli Live premiers. The actor then intends to take a short vacation, during which he wants to go through the script that has been given to him. Aamir, who is known to take a long time to finalise his scripts, is also considering Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet and a re-make of Yaadon ki Baarat.”
