Will Aamir play Munna Bhai


Buzz is that the Disco Fighter will replace Sanjay Dutt in the franchise

We had told you earlier how Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi might not play Munnabhai and Circuit anymore. Apparently Munna Bhai makers Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani wanted “fresh faces.” It seems they have changed their minds, because the latest buzz doing the rounds is that they are in talks with Aamir Khan and Sharman Joshi to replace the comic duo. Rumour is that Vidhu and Rajkumar hope to make their franchise much bigger by pulling in their 3 Idiots actors. Aamir and Sharman did show great chemistry in both 3 Idiots and Rang De Basanti. Of course, this news didn’t go down well with Sanju baba. Now you may recall that the first Munna Bhai film, Munna Bhai MBBS, had actually been offered to Shahrukh Khan. Though the Badshaah was interested, he couldn’t accept the offer as he had to undergo surgery for his neck. That’s when Sanjay stepped in. And now Aamir might take over. This is not the first time Shahrukh and Aamir have crossed paths for the same role. In the beginning of their careers, Aamir had refused the role in Darr that finally went to Shahrukh. And just earlier this year, there were reports that Shahrukh was to play the negative character in Dhoom 3, which now Aamir will do. We wonder if the Disco Fighter thought of this before he started talks with Hirani.
