'Gandhi Jayanti,' celebrated on October 2nd each year in India, commemorates the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation. On this special day, let's revisit one of the most iconic scenes from the Bollywood film 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai.' In this memorable moment, Munna (played by Sanjay Dutt) humorously questions Circuit about the significance of October 2nd and says, '2 October ko kya hai', to which Circuit (Arshad Warsi) responds with the line, 'Dry day hai Bhai' (It's a dry day, brother).
This exchange between Munna and Circuit remains etched in our memories as one of the most hilarious sequences in Indian cinema. It never fails to evoke laughter and serves as a lighthearted reminder of the importance of celebrating historical figures like Gandhi while embracing the lighter aspects of life.

Mahatma Gandhi was a prominent leader in India's struggle for independence from British colonial rule and is known for his principles of non-violence, civil disobedience, and social justice. This day is observed as a national holiday in India to honour his legacy and contributions to the nation's history.
While 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai' is a 2006 Indian comedy-drama film directed by Rajkumar Hirani and starring Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi in the lead roles. The film is the second instalment in the 'Munna Bhai' series and is known for its unique blend of comedy and Gandhian philosophy.
Set in a contemporary urban context, the story follows Munna, a lovable goon who discovers the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. He started using these principles, particularly non-violence and truth, to solve problems and bring about positive change in society. The film's humour and heartwarming moments are intertwined with these Gandhian values, making it an unconventional but endearing cinematic experience.
'Lage Raho Munna Bhai' was not only a commercial success but also received critical acclaim for its social commentary and the performances of the cast. It played a significant role in popularizing Gandhi's ideas among the younger generation and promoting the concept of Gandhigiri, a term coined from the film, which encourages peaceful and compassionate solutions to life's challenges.
