Arshad Warsi says if everything falls into place, the third installment of the Munna Bhai franchise will go on floors by the end of the year.
When asked about the third installment, Arshad said, “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.”
Munna Bhai MBBS released in 2003, followed by its sequel Lage Raho Munna Bhai three years later.
This time, however, there would be a gap of more than a decade and Arshad says it’s slightly “scary” to pick up the character from where he left.
“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 realised 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,” the actor said.
