The Aamir Khan, R Madhavan and Sharman Joshi starrer 3 Idiots needs no introduction as it is one of the most loved Hindi films. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the story focuses on the engineering life of three friends – Rancho, Farhan and Raju.

In an interview with an Indian tabloid, director Rajkumar Hirani was asked if he is planning to make the sequel to 3 Idiots. The director said that he is keen on making a sequel and the process is still in its initial stage.

The PK director said, “I definitely want to make a sequel to 3 Idiots. In fact, Abhijat [Joshi, writer] and I started writing something a few days ago. But it’s still in the initial stage and we will take a fair amount of time to develop the script.”

However, a source informed the tabloid that Raju Hirani will work on the sequel to 3 Idiots only after Munna Bhai 3.

A source stated, “They have almost finalised the script of Munna Bhai 3. Raju is keen to start work on it.”

Some time ago, even Aamir Khan had expressed his interest in the sequel to 3 Idiots. He had expressed his desire to take forward the story of these three friends in the film.

Currently, the director is busy with the interviews and promotions of his film Sanju. Based on the life of Sanjay Dutt, the film will see Ranbir Kapoor portraying Sanjay’s character.

Sanju also stars Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal and Jim Sarbh in pivotal roles.

The film is slated to release on June 29, 2018.
