Munnab­hai 3 script is funny, rel­e­vant: Warsi

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - FRONT PAGE -

Ac­tor Ar­shad Warsi (right) is ex­cited to be a part of the third film in the Munnab­hai fran­chise, as the ac­tor says its script is “so rel­e­vant and funny”.

Munna Bhai MBBS was re­leased in 2003 fol­lowed by its se­quel, Lage Raho Munna Bhai in 2006. Now, 11 years af­ter the se­quel, Ar­shad is all set to reprise his role as ‘cir­cuit’ to San­jay Dutt’s af­fa­ble Munna bhai in the Ra­jku­mar Hi­rani di­rected com­edy-drama. “It (the film) is so rel­e­vant to to­day’s times. It’s so beau­ti­ful. It’s in the same space. It’s funny, emo­tional and has a mes­sage which, if peo­ple re­ally lis­ten to, we will have a bet­ter place to live in,” Ar­shad says.

Heap­ing praise on Hi­rani, Ar­shad says, “It’s good that Raju told ev­ery­body about this. It’s nice. It will be great fun. It’s a great script. The thought is beau­ti­ful. That’s what Raju looks for. He likes a good thought and then weaves a beau­ti­ful story around it.”

Post Lage Raho... Hi­rani had started work­ing on the next in­stall­ment but it hit a road­block as the team was ap­par­ently not too happy with the script. Ar­shad says, “That was an­other fab­u­lous script. It had such funny and emo­tional mo­ments. It was un­be­liev­able. Raju is very ded­i­cated to his work. He works so hard but if it’s not com­ing along well, he will drop it. He had a prob­lem with the sec­ond half of the film. I wish some­body should make it. Or they should just go back, re­work and make it. That was just a beau­ti­ful script.”
