• Arshad won't do 'Munnabhai' without Bhai

    23rd March 2013

    It's been over two days and Bollywood cannot stop grieving over Sanjay Dutt's imprisonment. Wondering what will happen to all his movies in the coming years, one doesn't know what to say.

    Actor Arshad Warsi and close friend to Dutt is equally shocked to hear the news. He is totally devastated to hear about his prison sentence by the Supreme Court.

    The two were suppose to do 'Munnabhai 3' together, but Arshad said that he cannot do it without Dutt.

    "I can't imagine a Munnabhai film without Sanju. He is the Munnabhai. He is synonymous with the film," said Arshad.

    The actor is currently in Lucknow shooting for 'Dedh Ishqiya'. When asked if the film will be made now or no he said, "Honestly I have no clue. I am here in Lucknow, so I really don't know what Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Rajkumar Hirani and Subhash Kapoor are thinking. I can't really say. It's a decision that Vinod Chopra, Raju and Subhash have to take. But if asked for my personal opinion, I can't fathom a Munnabhai without Sanju. That's what all of us feel. If it ever happens, it will be with Sanju. We have waited five years to announce this Munnabhai, I'm sure a couple more will make no difference. We surely can wait for him to come back and be part of the film. Otherwise it won't be the same."

    Arshad was also asked if he would work in the film without Dutt, but he said, "No, I don't think so. I did the first Munnabhai because of Sanju. He's such a secure and confident actor and I knew I'll be safe with him around. Things won't be the same without him. I can't be part of Munnabhai without Munnabhai himself. It'll be impossible for me to see anyone else there except Sanju."
