Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. was the film which gave Sanjay Dutt‘s career a new lease of life in Bollywood. Today one can’t separate Sanjay Dutt and his popular character Munna Bhai from each other such was the impact of Sanjay Dutt in the role. But did you know – Sanjay Dutt was not the first choice for the film! It was another actor who was offered the role and rejected it due to certain reasons.
The actor we are referring to is none other than Vivek Oberoi. Vivek Oberoi who is currently busy with his upcoming film based on the life of the respected Prime Minister of India – Narendra Modi, shared to a leading publication that he was offered the film and had even said yes to it. Buzz has it that the actor had even started workshops for the film. But then fate had other plans! Vivek Oberoi shared that due to date issues he could not do the film.
Well Vivek Oberoi’s loss turned out to be Sanjay Dutt’s gain and how! Maybe Vivek’s career trajectory may have been very well different had he done Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. – what do you think?
