Arshad’s ‘Circuit’ious role
Arshad Warsi is excited to be a part of the third film in the Munnabhai franchise, as the actor says its script is so relevant and funny. Munna Bhai MBBS was released in 2003 followed by its sequel, Lage Raho Munna Bhai in 2006. Now, 11 years after the sequel, Arshad is all set to reprise his role as ‘circuit’ to Sanjay Dutt’s affable ‘Munna bhai’ in the Rajkumar Hirani directed comedy-drama. While talking to PTI, he said “It (the film) is so relevant to today’s times. It’s so beautiful. It’s in the same space. It’s funny, emotional and has a message which, if people really listen to, we will have a better place to live in.” Post “Lage Raho…” Hirani had started working on Munnabhai Chale America, but it hit a roadblock as the team was apparently not too happy with the script and the 48-year-old actor says someone should make that film. Arshad is currently awaiting the release of Irada. The Aparnaa Singh directed film, also features Naseeruddin Shah and Divya Dutta.
