Rajkumar Hirani's Munna Bhai series starring Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi in the lead is undoubtedly one of the most loved film franchises ever made. While Sanjay Dutt played the lead role of an affable goon with a heart of gold, Arshad Warsi played his sidekick, Circuit, who is equally loved by fans and movie buffs.
For a long time now, the reports of Munna Bhai 3 are doing the rounds on the internet. Last year, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani confirmed that they have cracked a subject and the scripting is underway. He also revealed that they were supposed to start the film but he decided to go for Sanjay Dutt biopic instead. The film which was titled as Sanju turned out to be a massive blockbuster at the box office.
Now, after almost 13 years, there is finally a confirmation about the movie. Recently, Arshad Warsi, who is busy promoting his upcoming movie Fraud Saiyaan was asked about the status of Munna Bhai 3 and he revealed that the script is locked and the movie will go on floors either mid-year or by the year-end.
Here's what he told a leading daily,
I do know that the script is pretty much ready. I do know from Raju [Rajkumar Hirani] that the film will go on floors this year - either mid or the end of the year. The work on the script is going on. As of now, yes it's Sanju and me. These are the things I've been told.
Further talking about playing the iconic character of Circuit, Arshad stated,
I tend to do my film and forget about my character and I move on to the next one. I tend to forget, which is what happened with Munna Bhai. When I came for the second part, I was doing the same role differently. I realized something isn't quite right. Then Raju and I saw a couple of scenes from the first one and remembered how I should be doing. This time too, I'm sure I'll do it.
Meanwhile, Arshad Warsi's Fraud Saiyaan is slated for a January 18 release. Well, we’ll be eagerly waiting to see him in the third movie of Munnabhai series? Do let us know in the comments section below.
