Following the success stories of Muni and Kanchana, which was marketed as Muni 2, there was intense speculation about Raghava Lawrence's next move. There were reports that a Hindi remake of Kanchana was in the offing with Shahrukh Khan or Salman Khan in the lead and Sanjay Dutt playing the transgender character which Sarath Kumar made popular in the original. However these stories have petered out now as nothing has come of it.
Kanchana ended with the promise of a sequel, so there had been talk of Lawrence working on Muni 3 as well. Now we hear that Muni 3 has materialized as Lawrence has readied the script and the film is all set to begin the shoot in December. As in the other two, he will be directing and starring in the film himself. Official details about the rest of the cast and crew are expected soon.
