The Munnabhai franchise started in 2003 followed by a sequel in 2006. And it's been over a decade now that the reports of Munnabhai 3 are doing the rounds.

According to Vidhu, the movie got delayed as he didn't have a script worth making a film on.

"I haven't yet made my next Munna Bhai because I didn't get a proper script," he added.
