Munnabhai's first stop was medical world [MUNNABHAI MBBS] and from there he moved to 'Gandhigiri' [LAGEY RAHO MUNNABHAI]. Now film maker Vinod Pandey has been seemingly inspired by Munnabhai as he is planning to make a series of 'chaloo' movies in months to come. While his first film is a take on Bollywood and is titled CHALOO MOVIE, his subsequent movies would be looking at 'chalooness' [in his own words] in the world of sports, science, law and of course medical profession amongst others.

Says Vinod Pandey whose last release was RED SWASTIK, ''Pick up any area and you would see that 'chalooness' is pervasive in Indian society. This is why through my series of 'chaloo' flicks; I am looking at narrating tales in a comic manner. However, let me add that each of these films would be very 'telling' comedies.''

What made him choose film industry as the backdrop for his first 'chaloo' film?

''This was my first choice because frankly speaking, it is the easiest subject to explore. Our attempt though would definitely be to attempt further stories. Moreover, an ensemble cast comprising of Shekhar Suman, Rajpal Yadav, Vrijesh Hirjee and others would be repeated across all films'', he divulges.

Doesn't he wish to taste the waters first before making an announcement of his series?

''Even if I am reasonable successful with CHALOO MOVIE, I would go bang on with the entire series. Also, I have a strong feeling that CHALOO MOVIE will be a huge success since it is quite rib tickling. Moreover, through our very first attempt, we will ensure that people look forward to innumerous 'chaloo' films'', he signs off.
