3 Idiots Sequel (Part 2) :- When asked about plans of a 3 Idiots sequel in an interview, screenwriter Abhijat Joshi replied, saying, “Honestly, I don’t know. We have an idea for the 3 Idiots sequel, a Munna Bhai part three, and also for a PK sequel; but the PK and Munna Bhai sequels interest me the most. So, I think the 3 Idiots sequel may happen in the future, but these two I really want to work on.”
