“A film like ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ always remains relevant because of its theme. It is very rare that a film addresses really complicated societal issues in such a simple yet profound way. The questions that the film tackled in 2006 are still meaningful,” wrote Dia Mirza who played an important role in the movie “Lage Raho Munna Bhai”.
Taking a stroll down memory lane, Dia recalled and shared, “I played a young girl who has been weighed down by the superstition that she is a ‘Manglik’ and unpropitious. Her honesty and the way the conflict in her life is resolved on the day she is getting married is, in a way, a powerful summation of the theme of the film. Which basically asks us to not lose sight of each other’s humanity.”
The movie completed its 15 years from its release. ”Lage Raho Munna Bhai” was released in 2006 as a follow-up to Sanjay Dutt’s 2003 movie “Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. The movie which popularised the terms such as “Gandhigiri” and “Get well soon ” was directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
