"I want to make Munnabhai..'. I want to make some fun films. Finally we have something that I want to do," Chopra said in a group interview in Mumbai.

The filmmaker said soon after the release of Shikara, which is about exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley, he will start working on the next Munna Bhai movie.

When asked if the stars of the movie and director Rajkumar Hirani will return for the new installment, Chopra said, "It will definitely be with Sanjay. Hopefully it will be made with all of them. I am going to work on it from 10 February."

"We have the correct idea but we have to work on it. I don't know by when it will be made," he added.

Directed by Hirani and produced by Chopra, the series chronicles the story of an affable goon - Munna, played by Dutt, and his loyal sidekick Circuit, essayed by Warsi.

The first two projects of the series - Munna Bhai MBBS (2003) and Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), both were directed by Hirani.

Hirani's last directorial was Sanju, a biopic on Dutt.
