Actor Arshad Warsi says the third instalment of Munna Bhai series will not start as Rajkumar Hirani-directed biopic on Sanjay Dutt is yet to go on floors.
“That (starting Munna Bhai 3) is an issue as Raju (Hirani) has to start the Sanjay Dutt biopic and it is getting pushed ahead,” Arshad said. “Until he (Hirani) decides he wants to do Munnabhai part three first and then the Sanjay Dutt biopic… if that happens then we will go first.”
Hirani approached Ranbir to play Sanjay’s role in the biopic in November 2014 and the actor instantly gave his nod for the film. The project is expected to go on floors next January and release during Christmas, Since the Munna Bhai series is one of the most successful franchise, Arshad, 48, is quite excited about the third part.
There were rumours that Arshad and Sanjay won’t be seen in the third part of Munna Bhai series and younger actors will be playing the two iconic roles of Munnabhai and Circuit.
Sanjay had earlier served a sentence in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case. He came out of jail in February this year and Arshad had met him after his release. – CINEWS
