Arshad Warsi has acted in many successful films in his two-decade-long career, but the kind of name and fame Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003) and Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) brought him is absolutely nonpareil.

Though the super successful franchise starred superstar Sanjay Dutt in the title role of Munna Bhai, Warsi’s adoringly goofy character of Circuit left an indelible impression on viewers’ mind.

There have been a lot of rumours about the third instalment of the popular film series over the years, but the makers are yet to confirm anything officially except that the movie is indeed in the works.

However, when in one of his recent interview Arshad Warsi was asked about the status of the much-awaited film, he said that Munna Bhai 3 will mount the shooting floors at the end of 2019.

“Hirani told me he is working on Munna Bhai 3. We all know that he is particular about his films and takes his own time to write them. He doesn’t rush into anything, so let’s wait for an official announcement. We plan to begin (working on it) towards the end of next year,” said the actor.

Just like the previous instalments of the series, Munna Bhai 3 will also be helmed by celebrated filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who most recently directed blockbuster Sanju (2018).
