Arshad Warsi on Munna Bhai 3
Arshad Warsi who played the character of Circuit alongside Sanjay Dutt in Munna bhai M.B.B.S, also received huge appreciation for his role.
In an interview with India Today in July, Arshad confirmed that Munna Bhai might not be happening shattering the expectations of every fan. The actor said, “Munna Bhai may not happen. This is the weirdest thing. We have a director who wants to make it, a producer who wants to produce it, an audience who wants to see it, actors who want to act in it and still it is not happening.”
Arshad says that Rajkumar Hirani is an insane perfectionist. He will never make a film until he is sure about the script. He adds that there are 3 scripts ready but there are some issues regarding it and Rajkumar Hirani is someone who will never start a project until he is 100-200 percent sure about the script.
Arshad says that when they have a clear script only then will Hirani start with the project.
