To the collective delight of the entire country, actor Arshad Warsi has confirmed that the third installment of the hit franchise 'Munna Bhai' will go on floors by the end of this year. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the series chronicles the story of an affable goon and his loyal sidekick, played by Sanjay Dutt and Warsi, respectively. When asked about the third installment, Arshad said, “I do know that the script is pretty much ready. I do know from Raju 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.”
While the gap between the first movie 'Munna Bhai MBBS' which was released in 2003 and its sequel 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai' is three years; this time there would be a gap of over 10 years and Warsi said it's slightly “scary” to pick up the character from where he left. He said, “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 dping. This time too, I'm sure I'll do it.”
He also revealed that the fifth installment of 'Golmaal 5' will also happen. In Rohit Shetty's recently released 'Simmba', the 'Golmaal' gang had a cameo in a special song where they hinted about the upcoming film. He added, “That will happen too. All of us know, Rohit knows, that he owes it to the audience.”
Arshad is currently gearing for the release of 'Fraud Saiyaan', directed by Sourabh Shrivastava.
