“I do know from Raju that the script is pretty much ready and 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,” Arshad told PTI.
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.
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 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.”
Munna Bhai MBBS released in 2003, followed by its sequel Lage Raho Munna Bhai three years later.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Arshad is currently gearing up for the release of “Fraud Saiyaan”, directed by Sourabh Shrivastava. The film is scheduled to be released on January 18.
