‘Wanted to do Munna Bhai MBBS as TV series’

‘Wanted to do Munna Bhai MBBS as TV series’
Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani revealed that initially he wanted to make the comedy-drama as a TV series with actor R Madhavan. The 2003-film starred Sanjay Dutt as the lovable goon and gave a new life to the actor’s career. Hirani, however, said the film was originally planned as a TV series and he had approached Madhavan for the titular role.

“Before Munna Bhai MBBS got made into a film, years back I had written it as a series. I wanted to do a serial out of it and that time Maddy (Madhavan) was doing many serials, he was a big star on television and I had approached him and he said ‘I am too busy I don’t think I can do it’. 

“If he had agreed Munna Bhai wouldn’t have gotten made as a film,” Hirani told reporters.
