We have got the right idea but we have to work on that. I can't say how much time it will take to make but I really want to make it, because wherever I go people ask me about it. Even at the airport, people keep asking me, ‘when will Munna Bhai come?' (laughs). So, we have to make it before people get upset with us!"
