Here comes a heart-melting new for the fans of ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ series which is considered as the most loved among Sanjay Dutt’s movies.
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.
After the success of ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’, the filmmaker RajKumar Hirani had begun working for third part of the series – ‘Munnabhai Chale America’ and even had its teaser out. However, the film had to be shelved due to various reasons including the lead actor Sanjay Dutt serving a jail term over the possession of arms during the Mumbai blasts.
“I could've taken any of them [ideas] and released another film, knowing people would watch it. But I don't want to make a Munnabhai which is not as good, if not better, than the previous two. I'm going to make just one more after which someone else can take the franchise forward and it has to be equally good", said Hirani in an interview.
Heaping praise on Hirani, Arshad said, “It’s good that Raju told everybody about this. It’s nice. It will be great fun. It’s a great script. The thought is beautiful. That’s what Raju looks for. He likes a good thought and then weaves a beautiful story around it.”
