We can all agree that Rajkumar Hirani‘s Munna Bhai with Sanjay Dutt is a National Award winning classic that can never be replaced or recreated to its best effect. So this piece of information we received today about the film blew our minds! Vivek Oberoi, in a recent interview, shared that he was supposed to essay the iconic role of the Mumbai don Munna Bhai. Can you believe it?

In an interview with Huffpost India, Vivek shared that he was first offered the part in the film but he couldn’t do the movie due to date issues.

Here is an excerpt from his interview:

I wanted to do Munnabhai, I said yes to it, but destiny had it that it was supposed to be a Sanjay Dutt film. I couldn’t adjust my dates

Well, that is unfortunate. But the movie certainly turned out to be a turning point in Sanjay’s career and one of his best performances ever!

On the work front, Vivek’s film PM Narendra Modi is currently under a lot of controversy and as per reports, the release of the film has been stalled. Sanjay Dutt on the other hand, is all set to star in the period drama – Kalank – slated to release on the 17th of April. As for Rajkumar Hirani and the Munna Bhai franchise, the director has confirmed that there will be a third film.

We can’t wait to watch Sanjay and Mr.Hirani weave magic on screen once again! What about you guys? Tell us in the comments below.
