It's clear that the wacky duo of Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi will reprise their roles of Munna and Circuit in the third leg of Munna Bhai franchise. But it's still nebulous whether Hirani will don the director's hat for it.



"Rajkumar Hirani, who has been an inseparable part of the Munna Bhai franchise thus far might not get to direct the third part in the series," reports Mumbai Mirror.



So who will direct the film then?

The daily says Rajesh Mapuskar who has directed Vidhu Vinod Chopra's forthcoming film Ferrari Ki Sawaari is being considered as a replacement for Hirani.



What does Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the producer have to say?

"Confirming that he is indeed working on Munna Bhai 3 with Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, Chopra told the daily: "We are writing the film now. Hirani is making another film. So, it could be him directing my film or it could be Rajesh Mapuskar. Rajesh has done a great job with Ferrari Ki Sawaari."

"You know what, Hirani, Mapuskar and I work as a family. We at Vinod Chopra Films work like a family. Now, Hirani has written the dialogues for Mapuskar's film. And Hirani is the biggest director in this country. Tell me, which director will want to write dialogues for his assistant's film after being so successful in life?" Chopra tells Mumbai Mirror.



Sounds like a done deal then. But you never know in showbiz, matters take on varying hues overnight. If Hirani doesn't direct the third chapter, we wonder if the flavour can be retained without the 3 Idiots and Munna Bhai anchor.
