Shahrukh Khan was there in "Munnabhai MBBS" (Did You Know - 7)

04 Apr, 2009 | Did You Know!

The title is not a mistake, and you have read it rightly.

Munna Bhai series has been one of the most successful Bollywood series till date, which has been appreciated both by the critics as well as the audience together. But its not a widely known fact that the first film of this series Munna Bhai MBBS was actually planned with the one and only Shahrukh Khan in the lead role which later luckily landed up in the lap of Sanjay Dutt.

As a part of the planned project, Shahrukh was also helpful and contributed with his own inputs while the screenplay of the movie was being written. So though not physically present on the screen, still many of the worth remembering scenes and characterization is a result of Shahrukh being there in the team with Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra in reality.

Eventually due to some reasons beyond control, Shahrukh could not become Munnabhai as Sanjay Dutt was destined to play it. But Rajkumar Hirani did not forget to acknowledge the contribution made by Shahrukh in the project and rightly gave him a humble credit in the film’s end rolls.

So next time you watch the film again, just look out for its end credits closely and you will find this written in it,

“Special Thanks to – Shahrukh Khan : For his inputs in the script”

And this is really a great example of the much needed Sportsman Spirit to be practiced in any creative medium including the world of Cinema.
