Rajkumar Hirani is a director whose EACH AND EVERY film was a huge hit (especially the last one) and have been loved enormously by the audiences & critics. It was hard to believe that an editor-turned-director makes MUNNA BHAI M.B.B.S. as his first film. Even he wore the film. It was a path breaking film in its own terms, for it connected with the each section of audience so powerfully. It made us give everyone a lovely, precious, JAADU KI JHAPPI.
His second venture, LAGE RAHO MUNNA BHAI, broke the ground once again, with a bigger momentum. This film taught us about non-violence, universal love in this era of brutality and insanity. This is an unquestionable modern classic, at least for me. He handled the role of editor/ writer/ director with equal master.
We talked about SRK 2 post ago. So we decide not to stretch. RH's third Munnabhai film, MUNNA BHAI CHALE AMERIKA, has been announced. But his third venture will be a different one, representing our present education system. For the very same film, he's gone to SRK to enact the pivotal role. Awesome news HAAH!
SCOOP: Do you know that SRK was first approached for the role of MUNNABHAI? But he couldn't do it for time problems and the role went to Sanju. Here's in SRK's own words.
Raju Hirani’s simplicity of storytelling is the most wonderful thing about the
film. In fact I loved the title of the film when I heard it. Vidhu Vinod Chopra
had come to me and he was extremely passionate to make the film but I had to
undergo a surgery at that time. I had to give up the film because I could not
have asked them to wait for me till I recover. They were not my friends at that
point of time. Now of course they are best buddies but I could not really ask
them to wait for me till I recover.
So another masterpiece?
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NEWS?
Remember you read it on BUwH for the first time!
