MUNNABHAI 3 in pipeline minus Arshad Warsi?

Munnabhai aka Sanjay Dutt is expected to be a free man in the first week of March 2016 from the Yerwada jail, following his good behavior. 

With his liberty from jail filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra, director Raju Hirani and writer Abhijat Joshi are all geared up for the much anticipated third installment of MUNNABHAI series 

During a press meeting in Mumbai filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra at the promotion of his latest Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar starrer WAZIR reveled his future plans about the making of MUNNABHAI 3.

Briefing media he said, “Of course we are making MUNNABHAI 3 and are almost close to finishing the scripting of the film.” 

On being quizzed if Sanjay Dutt would repeat the part, Vinod Chopra, without any hesitation asserted, “Yes Sanjay Dutt is there. How can Munnabhai be complete without Sanju baba?”

While Sanjay Dutt is sure to play his part in the third installments readers would be surprised to know there is uncertainty about Arshad Warsi being repeated again for the popular ‘Circuit' character! 

When pressed to answer about Arshad Warsi both the director and producer along with writer Abhijat Joshi maintaining silence. 

It is ironical a few months back in an interview Arshad Warsi had expressed optimism about the making of MUNNA BHAI 3. “The script is almost ready and we are waiting for Sanjay Dutt to come back and relax and then we will start working on it,” Arshad had informed.

Now that Sanjay Dutt would be soon released and the filmmakers have confirmed his part in the film, it is ironical that Arshad Warsi is out of the film!!
