Rajkumar Hirani is an Indian director, screenwriter and film editor of Hindi films, best known for the films Munna Bhai MBBS, Lage Raho Munnabhai, 3 Idiots and PK. All the films directed by him went on to become huge successes at the box office.
Raj Kumar Hirani’s last release was PK; two years ago. He is currently working on the Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor.
After two films with Sanjay Dutt and two films with Aamir Khan, Raju is now making a film with a third actor. It’s too soon to say whether his next will also be with Ranbir.
Aamir Khan’s blockbuster film 3 Idiots that experienced record breaking success at the box office, is all set for a sequel. And it is filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani who is more than excited about the second instalment and also revealed that they have been contemplating about it.
According to a report in a daily, Rajkumar was all praises for the superstar and also mentioned about how he would love to work with Aamir Khan once again. Further talking about the details of the sequel to 3 Idiots, the filmmaker asserted that they have a great idea that he along with his writer Abhijat (Joshi) pitched to Aamir Khan despite it being sketchy. But the superstar liked it and has even agreed to come on board. Strictly maintaining that there are no plans for a PK sequel, Rajkumar also did not divulge much details about 3 Idiots 2 considering that the film is still in its initial stages.
On the other hand, Rajkumar Hirani last announced the Sanjay Dutt biopic which is said to star Ranbir Kapoor as the popular actor. It is also being said that the filmmaker has plans for a third Munnabhai film but there has been no announcement on the same.
But why 3 Idiots and not a sequel to PK? Raju says, “After the amount of bashing we got for it, we would rather be careful with PK. Munnabhai, of course, will have a sequel. We want to make one for 3 Idiots. Let PK be for a while, unless we can use the alien to do something else.
