Rajkumar Hirani to Make Munnabhai Chale America

Rajkumar Hirani is unfazed by the super success of 3 Idiots, which is hailed as a landmark movie in terms of commercial success. He has just come back from the US after consulting with his script-screenplay writer Abhijat Joshi.

When asked whether he is making 300 Gods as speculated by the media, Raju says, “We have 33 crore Gods. Why would I choose 300 of those? Unless of course, people think that in three hours I can only accommodate 300. Anyway the important issue here is that I will be making a movie on religion. But media reports saying it deal with 300 Gods is wrong. My writer Abhijat Joshi is here. And we have just got a fix on the idea. The script itself is still to be written. I’m also writing Munnabhai.”

Raju says that people  are always asking him to do a third movie on the Munnabhai franchise. He states how one person even said that he had just shown the trailer of Munnabhai Chale America and didn’t make the film. His fascination for Munnabhai and the public demand has convinced him to go for the third installment of the Munnabhai series. Raju says, “There are a lot of things that goes in the society which can be said convincingly through Munnabhai.”

Though Rajkumar Hirani is being hailed as the number one director in Bollywood, he is far from complacent. He says “I am happy for sure but I don’t want to fall into this trap of numbers. I believe that today I’m on top because of 3-Idiots. Tomorrow there may be no film or there could be a film that has not done very well. This can happen. So why fall into this trap? I believe that each film is my first film and I give it all I have. Just because I have three good films behind me, it doesn’t make me all-powerful. I have to still strive to give my best to whatever I undertake. A filmmaker is only as good as his last film.”

While the trade is abuzz whether he will take Aamir again or Shah Rukh for his next project, Rajkumar says, “I have worked with the best. However, I can’t say who the leading man in my next film is unless I have a ready script. I don’t write films keeping an actor in mind. It goes the other way around.”

Raju believes that this is the best time for Bollywood, there is place for anyone who can come up with a good subject. He adds, “While ten years ago we only made love stories with the song-dance fix, now we have makers like Vishal Bhardwaj, Anurag Kashyap and Imtiaz Ali doing different work. Each has his own style and strength. And Hindi cinema is certainly poised for a great take-off.”
