22: Dia Mirza’s Marriage – Lage Raho Munnabhai
Dia Mirza does it again, and this time in her short cameo in Munnabhai MBBS 2. Although the stars of the show in this movie were Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi who were winning over their audience’s heart with their Gandhigiri acts, Dia did leave a strong impression in her short stint. Dia plays the perfect runaway bride when she learns that her father had lied to the groom’s family about her condition and decides to run away from the wedding in her bridal dress. On her way, she meets a Taxi driver Victor played by Jimmy Shergill who convinces her to talk to his friend Munna aka Sanju Baba who can solve her problem. Munna convinces the bride to return back and speak out the truth. As a result, Dia Mirza’s wedding finally happens as planned and Sanjay Dutt makes a statement again
with his Gandhigiri act.
Like most of Hirani’s movies, this movie also carried a strong social message and his movies never fail to strikes a chord with the audience. Having said that, Both the lead actors and the director admitted that they were carrying some burden of expectations from the last Munnabhai movie. But as always, Hirani delivered a master stroke.
