Munna flips for a gori mem!

Heres a major scoop and like always, its on IndiaFM first! Post LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI, Rajkumar Hirani is planning two films. One, a fresh subject, a non-Munnabhai film. The other, MUNNABHAI CHALE AMERIKA. If youve watched EKLAVYA THE ROYAL GUARD, you mustve enjoyed the curtain raiser of the third installment in the Munna series. It depicts Munna and Circuits attempts to learn English before they embark on a journey to the U.S. Whats the noise about Hirani signing Ranbir Kapoor for a love story? Let me clear this. Rishi Kapoor had approached me soon after LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI. He wanted me to cast Ranbir in this film. But I havent signed him. I havent completed writing the script yet, the soft-spoken Hirani divulges, Sure, I am starting a non-Munnabhai film. I was keen to take a break after making two Munnabhai films back to back. But the casting is undecided, he adds. Meanwhile, the casting of MUNNABHAI CHALE AMERIKA is also unclear [barring Sanju and Arshad, of course]. I am working on the characters, he states, putting to rest all speculation about Vidya Balan featuring in this film. No, Vidya isnt part of this film. This time, Munna falls in love with an American. We are casting a blonde as Munnas love interest, he says. Munna and Circuit are brands. Its like the Laurel-Hardy series. They continue with their escapades with new people in every chapter/episode. Similarly, Munna and Circuit will continue with their adventures, but the faces will be different every time. Boman Irani? He has been an integral part of the first two films and I am trying to fit him in the third installment. Hell be there, I think, he states. Hirani doesnt harbor any aspirations of turning a producer or making films for someone else other than Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The equations with Vidhu are fantastic. He gives me all the freedom to make the movies I envision. Why should I look somewhere else? he avers. Valid point!
