If the idea of being replaced by Ranbir Kapoor in the third instalment of the Munna Bhai franchise was giving Arshad Warsi sleepless nights, the actor can now breathe easy. Contrary to the rumours doing the rounds, Rajkumar Hirani has no plans to cast a new Circuit.

A source close to the project says, “Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi will always be Munna Bhai and Circuit. Some writer somewhere got excited about the idea of having Hirani and Ranbir work together again after Sanju, and he decided, on their behalf, that they would be doing Munna Bhai together. The truth is, there is no script ready for the next Munna Bhai film yet. Writer Abhijat Joshi has been asked to work on it, but he’s yet to crack a subject.”

The source also reveals that since the next Munna Bhai film is still some time away, Hirani may collaborate with Ranbir on another project. “But not Munna Bhai. That will be with Dutt and Warsi only,” the source reiterates.

Not too many people know that producer Vidhu Vinod  Chopra had initially approached Shah Rukh Khan and Vivek Oberoi to play Munna Bhai and Circuit respectively. But once Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi were brought on board, there was no looking back.
