Arshad Warsi reveals Munna Bhai 3 is not on cards

In June, Arshad Warsi gave an interview to India Today where he confirmed that Munna Bhai might not be happening. He said, “Munna Bhai may not happen. This is the weirdest thing. We have a director who wants to make it, a producer who wants to produce it, an audience who wants to see it, actors who want to act in it and still it is not happening.” The actor also revealed that Hirani will not make the film until he is not sure about the script. “The thing is, Raju is insanely perfectionist. He has 3 scripts which are brilliant but there are some glitches. So, till the time he is not 100-200 percent sure of the script, he won’t start it. When you ask him, he will always say yes, never says no. He will say "‘main kar raha ho.. ek baar script fix ho jaaye na, mujhe yeh pasand nahi woh pasand nahi’. Once he crosses that stage, he will start", he added.
