Murli Prasad Sharma (Sanjay Dutt), nicknamed Munna Bhai (literally Brother Munna), is a bhai or gunda: a good-natured don in the Mumbai underworld. Given that his father had wished him to be a medical doctor, he creates the faux Sri Hari Prasad Sharma Charitable Hospital (named after his father) and pretends to live following this wish whenever his father (Sunil Dutt) and mother (Rohini Hattangadi) visit him in Mumbai.
One year, however, Munna’s plan goes awry when his father meets an old acquaintance, Dr. Asthana (Boman Irani) and the two older men decide to betroth Munna to Asthana’s daughter, Dr. Suman “Chinki” (Gracy Singh). At this point the truth about Munna is revealed. Asthana insults Munna’s parents and calls them “fools” for being ignorant of Munna’s real life. Munna’s father and mother, aghast and later heartbroken, leave for their village.
Munna, in grief and despair, decides that the only way to redeem himself and gain revenge for the humiliation suffered by his father at the hands of the spiteful Asthana is to become a doctor. He decides to go to a medical college to obtain an MBBS degree.
With the help of his right-hand man Circuit (Arshad Warsi) and others, Munna “gains admission” to a medical college, where he again encounters Dr. Asthana, who is the dean.

Munna Bhai M B B S 2003 Production:-
In an interview, Hirani discussed how the idea for the film emerged from his interactions with some friends who were medical students. Later, he also had the opportunity to interact with a lot of medical professionals when some members of his family became sick. These experiences gave birth to the idea for the film. During the scripting stage, Hirani wanted Anil Kapoor to play the lead role.
However, Shah Rukh Khan was later cast as Munna along with Sanjay Dutt as Zaheer but due to his back problems Khan was forced to turn down the film. Nevertheless, the end credits of the film thank Khan for his inputs into the script.
Hirani also narrated the script to Aishwarya Rai during the time he was in talks with Shahrukh Khan. Khan and Rai were working together on Devdas at the time. Vivek Oberoi was considered for the role but in the end, Sanjay Dutt took the role as Munna, which ultimately gave him an image makeover and helped change the public perception of the controversial superstar.
his real-life father Sunil Dutt returned to film after 10 years to play Munna’s father. This is the first and only film in which real-life father and son Sunil and Sanjay appear together, although they both appeared in Reshma Aur Shera (1971), Rocky (1981) and Kshatriya (1993) but not in any scenes together.
The original choice for Circuit’s role was Makrand Deshpande. Arshad Warsi took over the role which proved to be a turning point for his career. The scenes of the Medical College were shot at the Agriculture College of Pune and Grant Medical College Mumbai.
