Actor Arshad Warsi says if everything falls into place, the third instalment of the Munna Bhai franchise will go on floors by the end of the year. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the series chronicles the story of an affable goon, played by Sanjay Dutt, and his loyal sidekick Circuit (Arshad), who, in the previous two films, took on the conditions of hospitals and the diminishing Gandhian values in the country.
When asked about the third instalment, Arshad told PTI, “I do know that the script is pretty much ready. I do know from 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 Sanjay Dutt and me. These are the things I’ve been told.”
Munna Bhai MBBS released in 2003, followed by its sequel Lage Raho Munna Bhai three years later.
The actor is currently gearing up for the release of Fraud Saiyaan, directed by Sourabh Shrivastava. The comedy film is presented by Prakash Jha and scheduled to be released on January 18.
