In an interview with PTI, Joshi talks about the third part of the series, and says, "The toughest thing is to match up to what we did in 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai'. We are looking at something that will match the standards of 'Lage Raho...'. We have an idea in place. It is something new and different." The first film, "Munna Bhai MBBS", was based on the
medical profession, while the second one was about Mahatma Gandhi's ideologies of peace and non-violence.
