On December 19, MBBS under Munnabhai (2003), one of the greatest films ever made, turns 19 years old. Throughout the long term, we have brought to the perusers some extremely intriguing and not-really-known random data about the film. Mumaith Khan, on the other hand, adopted the role later. The writer-director brought some fascinating events from the film’s production to the forefront.
On this, the 19th anniversary, we bring you a story that never got out in the right way. In an interview, the director Rajkumar Hirani admitted that Anil Kapoor was his first choice for the role of Munna, also known as Murli Prasad Sharma.
“My first choice was Anil Kapoor because he had played a lot of ‘bhai’ roles in films like Tezaab,” Rajkumar Hirani stated. At that point, I thought he might be a good choice for this role. However, even after Vinod (Vidhu Vinod Chopra) stepped in as a producer, the movie went through a significant transition. We also approached Shah Rukh Khan, but Sanju, played by Sanjay Dutt, seemed ideal at one point. This is due to the fact that his body allows him to resemble a “bhai.” In addition, he conveys the impression of a person whose heart is in the right place with his charming smile and falling eyes. I can now say that he was the right choice when I look back.
“When I narrated the story to Vinod, he told me, ‘Shah Rukh ko Kahani sunaao,'” the movie’s director stated. Wow, that role is awesome, right? I contemplated, ‘Shah Rukh meri film Kyun Karega? Since I’m new, he hasn’t seen my work. “Suna toh do kahani,” he insisted. When I first met him, I recall that he was filming for Devdas (2002). I wanted to tell him the story. However, he advised me to leave the script behind due to his busy schedule. However, I abandoned the script and left.
Rajkumar went on to say, “Fortunately, Shah Rukh read the script and called me the following day.” He advised that I meet him. I did, and he told me how much he enjoyed the play. But he kept asking if I could make this movie. He finally agreed.
But there was a problem. According to Rajkumar Hirani, “he had to fly to London for his neck surgery at that time. In the meantime, he was already working on a lot of movies, like Chalte Chalte (2003), Main Hoon Na (2004), Veer-Zaara (2004), and so on. He informed me that he would complete the pending films before beginning work on my film. This meant that I would have to wait two to two and a half years.
This is the means by which Sanjay Dutt came ready and the rest is history.
Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani, on the other hand, finally had a chance to work together. They are currently producing Dunki. world News Entertainment
