Every character in Munna Bhai MBBS is iconic in its own sense. Even minor characters managed to leave an impact on the audience. But a piece of sad news regarding one of the actors in the movie has come to light. Vishal Thakkar, whom Munna Bhai (Sanjay Dutt) told his love story through a song, has gone missing. As per reports, Vishal Thakker has been missing for the past three years, with his family, friends and the police unable to trace him. The actor left his home on the night of December 31, 2015, and has not returned yet. Even the best men in the police force are unable to find a clue about his whereabouts.

A report by Indian Express suggests that on a fateful night, Vishal borrowed Rs 500 from his mother to watch the movie, Star Wars, and also asked her to accompany him, a request she turned down. He left the house, and texted his father around 1 AM, "I am going to a party. See you tomorrow", and that was the last conversation he had with his family.
There is more to the story. As per reports, the actor was accused of rape by his ex-girlfriend some time ago before his disappearance. The ex-couple had settled the matter out of court. But Vishal's family maintains that he remained emotionally disturbed by the accusations on top of his lack of work. Talking about the case, Vishal's mother said, "She frequented our house. One day they were together and the next day, she landed at my door with the police. It was a minor fight. Later, the two of them resolved it."
His mother also added, "I have no clue what happened to my son".
As per the investigation, Vishal was on his way to a shoot in Andheri when he was last seen with his girlfriend at Godbunder Road, Thane on January 1, 2016, around 11:45 am. His last Facebook post was "Happy New Year", which was posted at 12:10 pm, after which his phone was switched off.
Apart from Munna Bhai MBBS, Vishal has also worked in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma. Check out Vishal's song Apun Jaisa Tapori below:
The police also talked to the girlfriend but say that her side of the story has no discrepancies. Inspector N A Kulkarni, who investigated the case later, had said, "We don’t know if it’s a murder or a kidnapping, or he has run away."
A private investigator, Rajesh Pandey, who has traced 800 missing people, was hired. But, he, too, was unable to track the Vishal.
