Chopra, Hirani and co-writer Abhijat Joshi jointly feel that Kapoor is perfect to take the franchise to another level. They are especially confident after watching the special screening of "Jolly L.L.B.", a satire on the country's judiciary system.

"After seeing Subhash's work and discussing his thoughts and ideas, Raju, Abhijat and I collectively felt that we have, after a long search, found an individual with the right sensibility and approach to work with us in taking forward the 'Munna Bhai' franchise," Chopra said in a statement.

"I am pleased to welcome Subhash Kapoor into the Vinod Chopra Films family as the director of the next 'Munna Bhai' film," he added.
