Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani is often considered one of the best in today's crop of directors.

While his upcoming Sanjay Dutt biopic titled Sanju is slated for a 29 June release, the filmmaker revealed that the third installment of his successful film franchise Munna Bhai is in the pipeline, reports The Hindustan Times.

It was speculated for a while that Munna Bhai Chale America will be the tentative title of the third film. But now, the filmmaker cleared all such rumours and said that he, along with co-writer Abhijat Joshi, are in the conception stage. "We wanted to do the third Munna Bhai film and even wrote a lot of it, but we were not able to match the script with the first two. Now, I have found something, though we still have to write it."

Both Munna Bhai MBBS, Lage Raho Munna Bhai — starring Sanjay Dutt as the good-hearted gangster Munna and Arshad Warsi as Munna's sidekick Circuit — have been huge successes. The films have been loved by the audience and critics alike.

Apart from these, Hirani's other films include 3 IdiotsPK and soon-to-release Sanju.
