Goooood Moooorning Mumbai! | #OffThePage with Lage Raho Munna Bhai


Good morning, Mumbai! Welcome back to your favorite show. Today we have Mr. Murli Prasad Sharma
in the studio. How are you so knowledgeable
about Gandhi ji? I’m a huge Bapu fan. What a dude! Single handedly threw the Brits out! Doomed them! What a man! Class, huh? Do you think Mahatma Gandhi
has been forgotten today? Not at all. Oct 2nd is still
a Dry Day in his honor. Makes no difference,
I never touch liquor. No. Jokes apart,
do you still walk his path? Oh, I do a daily 3 mile walk on Mahatma Gandhi Road. – I mean, do you follow his principles?
– Totally. I’m a Number One Gandhi-ist! You mean, you’re a ‘Gandhian’, right? You bet! And you? Me? Not really. But I admire some of his values. – Like?
– Like, I never lie. We have a lot in common. We must meet more often. You mean, you never lie? Well, I did once. In 1992. A kid lost 50 paisa and was howling! I gave him my own coin,
and told him it was his. Take it. So tell me, what do you do? I’m a… Professor! – Professor?
– Yup. I teach kids History. But your… language? What to do?
Our language is doomed. I mean, our language is ‘woebegone’. Nobody speaks pure Hindi anymore. Having a ‘change of heart’ means… …’heart transplant’ to them! So you deliberately speak a lingo
your students understand? Correct! That’s why my students
always come first. No one comes in second place. Well, then I’ll speak like you too. Which song can I play
for your students, ‘Uncle’? Any hit cabaret song! Vidya? You came straight from Parineeta. Were you nervous?
Because… – You were the…
– Nervous? I was shivering. But you had already worked with Sanju
in Parineeta. You can’t understand,
it’s Munna and Circuit? First day, my scenes had just began
and they said, “Arshad has just…” “come on the set,
he’ll be here in five minutes.” I started sweating right there.
Then they said… Sanju is also coming on set. And I was like, “I hope” “he doesn’t come out of his van,
or doesn’t come here at all.” I just wasn’t ready to face him. Thankfully he couldn’t make it.
But I was literally shivering. Because for me, Sanju is still
the biggest superstar there ever will be. I’m still… Around him
I’m still a little like, you know? I don’t know what to say,
I’m like a little girl. Sanju and me felt the same way about her. We knew she was such a great actor… Brilliant actress. We were like… Let’s sit in the van for a while.
Then come out later… Now you know what a good actor Arshad is,
he lies so convincingly. Let’s talk about the scene
in the radio station. Jhanvi and Munna meet for the first time. – It’s the first time the word Gandhigiri
is used. – Yeah. When you first heard that word, did you feel like… what is that?
Because… – Now it seems such an obvious thing.
– Yeah. – But back in the day…
– Yeah. What is “Gandhigiri”, you know?
Was it scary? You’d only heard of
“Dadagiri” so far. – Correct.
– So it’s not a very positive context. – It’s not…
– Yeah. So, when you first heard it, Vidya
what did you feel? – First actually I thought
that it was a mistake. – Okay. And when I asked Raju he said,
“No, it’s Gandhigiri”. And then you know it’s become
a common parlance. – Now everybody says “Gandhigiri”.
– Yes. No one says “Gandhiyism” or “Gandhiwadi”.
They say “Gandhigiri”. – I thought it was damn cool.
– Yeah. I think somewhere Raju tends to
connect with the – lowest common denominator.
– Yeah. – Beautifully.
– And he does that beautifully. – Sanju, for you?
– I knew it was “Dadagiri” “Dadagiri” is violence.
“Gandhigiri” is non-violence. – As simple as that.
– So it makes sense. Yeah. So I was happy with it. But that scene was shot… three times over three days.
What was happening, Vidya? It was a very small studio
and I was sweating a lot. I would blow dry my hair
and come on the set. In two minutes to would go flat. And Raju wanted, you know… Because he falls in love
with that lock of hair. – Pigtail!
– Pigtail. He said pigtail. What was that?
He said pigtail. Then he corrects himself,
and says it’s the curls. So, you couldn’t get the curl? It wouldn’t stay in place. After a while I was losing my confidence.
Because of this… I was least bothered about the performance. I was worried
that if my hair was flat again Raju is again going to say… And that’s what kept happening.
We shot it over three nights. – I remember…
– Because of hair? And I remember at some point… Sanju said, “She looks fine,
let’s get it done.” And you know,
the funniest thing is after that every day, Sanju would ask me
if my hair was fine. He was worried that we’ll have to shoot
overnight otherwise. He was concerned about the dates.
He had to begin the with the next movie too. But how did you manage with that
lock of hair? It’s Shalaka. She’s my hairdresser,
I think she managed it. – So that one curly lock of hair.
– Yeah, for one lock of hair. – Wow! – Should have fixed it
in place with the hairspray. – Should have hanged a weight with it.
– Cemented lock of hair. Yeah, really. If she touched it, it would break.
Oh, sorry. – But yeah…
– But yes, Raju is… – My God!
– There’s a reason I’m called ‘Balan’. – Pretty good.
– Pretty good. This is what happens if you work with
Arshad Warsi. She couldn’t even control
one strand of her own hair. ‘Curly Balan.’ Okay, Vidya. Tell me the story behind,
“Good morning, Mumbai”. I didn’t get it. Raju kept saying
he wanted a signature “Good morning Mumbai”. – Yeah, everybody has one.
– Yeah. Then I went to several radio stations,
I met some radio jockeys. There’s Malishka
who is very energetic. Her lively voice would
set the pace for the day. That, I think Malishka
and Good morning, Vietnam. – Yeah. It’s there. Robin Williams says that.
– Robin Williams. He says that. And of course not as long,
but he says it with certain élan. Good morning, Mumbai! Welcome back to your favorite show. Today we have Mr. Murli Prasad Sharma
in the studio. How are you so knowledgeable
about Gandhi? I’m a huge Bapu fan. What a dude! Single handedly threw the Brits out! – Doomed them!
– No, not doomed, it’s ‘Woebegone’. What a man! Class, huh? Is that Munna? – Yes, sir.
– Turn up the volume. Do you think Mahatma Gandhi
has been forgotten today? Not at all. Oct 2nd is still
a Dry Day in his honor. Makes no difference,
I never touch liquor. No. Jokes apart,
do you still walk his path? Oh, I do a daily 3 mile walk on Mahatma Gandhi Road. – I mean, do you follow his principles?
– Totally. I’m a Number One Gandhi-ist! You mean, you’re a ‘Gandhian’, right? You bet! And you? Me? Not really. But I admire some of his values. – Like?
– Like, I never lie. We have a lot in common. We must meet more often. You mean, you never lie? Well, I did once. In 1992. A kid lost 50 paisa and was howling! I gave him my own coin,
and told him it was his. Take it. Mark my words.
He will be a politician. So tell me, what do you do? I’m a… Professor! – Professor?
– Yup. I teach kids History. But your… language? What to do?
Our language is doomed. I mean, our language is ‘woebegone’. Nobody speaks pure Hindi anymore. Having a ‘change of heart’ means ‘heart transplant’ to them! So you deliberately speak a lingo
your students understand? Correct! That’s why my students
always come first. No one comes in second place. Well, then I’ll speak like you too. Which song can I play
for your students, ‘Uncle’? Any hit cabaret song! He’s done so much for us. Been jailed, fasted, even took 3 bullets. lf Bapu were here around today,
he’d say, “We got freedom,” “but we have lost our people.” Pratap Ojha. Who was the oldest
amongst them, – would flirt.
– I love it. I remember, he used to sing
“Ae meri zohra jabeen”…

  1. First comment and second like. Straight from bed , was waiting for this series to start. Well done film companion!your ideas are too good 👍

  2. One of the most entertaining and positive discussion show ever. Seriously my whole family watched it and they loved it soo much . ❤️😘🙏🏻

  3. Hat's off to Vidya Balan
    She really played it like a RJ
    And don't need to say anything about Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi

  4. Sanju seems more intelligent than Bapu, he used Vindhu Vinod Chopra & Raju Hirani to distract people and cover up his crimes.

  5. आजकल सब गोड़से के फैन होते जा रहें है और मेरा दील दुखता है

  6. किस लिए इस गाँधी के बारे में बात करके अपना समय बर्बाद कर रहे हैं आप लोग, इससे बड़ा धूर्त इस दुनिया में हुआ है क्या कोई

  7. Ek time jhooth bola tha.. 92 me.. i dont know if its a coincidence or a masterstroke from writers.. but it had a lot of subtext in it!

  8. I think the person who gave all the ideas used in this series deserves a big applause . Creativity at its best.

  9. 8:35 pe dekho
    Ye Arshad yar esi aavaj kese nikal deta h
    Arshad ko jitni Respect milni chahiye thi Bollywood me
    Utni mili nhi

  10. RSS killed Bapu.Modi is not our PM.Go Modi Go.Make unrest in our country by going into useless conflicts destroying the economy.He dont have childern but others have.For his own agenda make the life common Indian miserable.

  11. I want this franchise to make more movies with sanju sir, arshad sir and boman sir….I luv both the movies of the franchise….

  12. “Good morning Mumbai” came from a movie called “Good Morning Vietnam”, where Robin Williams says this in the exact tone every morning in his army barrack’s radio station to address his listeners.

  13. Beautifuly directed film, each and everybody loved to watch this movie. All generations will witness this wonderful movie.
