Munna Bhai Goes To Hollywood

Tanya Palta briefly mentions in her post about Lage Raho Munna Bhai that a Hollywood version of the original Munna Bhai MBBS will be made, called Gangster MD.

This news interested me so much that I had to dig some more. A simple google search revealed that this news dates way back to April of 2005, and yet so few websites ever mention it, even though hundreds of posts and news articles are being written about Lage Raho Munna Bhai every week. Big deal? Hell yeah, big deal. This is the first time the rights for a Bollywood movie is bought by a major Hollywood studio, Twentieth Century Fox. THE FIRST TIME! This can do a lot for Bollywood in terms of acceptance, popularity and recognition worldwide.

Chris Tucker is said to play the role of Munna Bhai, originally played by Sanjay Dutt. According to IMDB, Gangster MD is planned for 2007. I'll be looking forward to watching this one for sure!
