Sanjay Dutt shares a throwback video
Released in 2003, the critically-acclaimed comedy-drama was directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. It chronicled the story of an affable goon, Munna bhai (Dutt), and his sidekick Circuit, played by Arshad Warsi.
Munna Bhai MBBS, which also featured Dutt's father, cinema icon Sunil Dutt, as well as Gracy Singh, Boman Irani, Rohini Hattangadi and Jimmy Sheirgill, was a major success at the box office and has amassed a dedicated fan following over the years.
Dutt shared a throwback video of the movie on social media platform X and wrote, "Two decades of laughter, emotions, and a whole lot of jadoo ki jhappi! Celebrating 20 years of Munna Bhai MBBS, a journey filled with unforgettable moments. Grateful for the love and support that made this film a timeless classic. Hoping that Munna Bhai 3 will be made soon!"
Arshad Warsi’s Instagram post
Warsi, who played the fan-favourite character Circuit, celebrated the landmark moment on Instagram. "Twenty years, wow, seems like yesterday… I thank you all for loving Munna & Circuit so much," the 55-year-old actor posted alongside a still from the movie.
Munna Bhai MBBS was followed by a 2006 sequel Lage Raho Munna Bhai, which was equally praised by critics and fans. It also starred Vidya Balan with Dia Mirza and Abhishek Bachchan appearing in cameo roles.
The makers had released a teaser video for the third part more than 10 years ago but the project continues to be in limbo.
