After playing Sanjay Dutt on-screen in Sanju, Ranbir Kapoor will now work him in Rajkumar Hirani’s third instalment of Munna Bhai. Yes, you heard that right! According to the latest reports, Ranbir Kapoor will replace Arshad Warsi as Circuit in the third party.
A source close to the makers told Filmfare, "Ranbir Kapoor's impressed everyone with his performance in Sanju . The makers believe Ranbir and Sanjay will share great on-screen chemistry considering their rapport with each other.”
Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003) and Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) saw Arshad Warsi playing Circuit in both the instalments of the franchise.
Talking about Sanju- the film, broke all the records as it crossed 300 Cr mark in just three weeks. SpotboyE.com editor Vickey Lalwani rated the film 3-stars. Here are a few extracts from his review: “You can swear on your dearest person living that Rajkumar Hirani couldn't have cast anybody else other than Ranbir Kapoor. That's the first thought that comes to mind as the Munnabhai director's celluloid version of Sanjay Dutt's life begins to engage you from the second reel (the start is a bit off-tangent). A similar thought had crossed our minds when we saw Rockstar, Tamasha and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, and RK continues to be in top form, not erring even once in any given frame.”
“Next up, is Vicky Kaushal who will unfailingly lift several awards for playing RK's Gujju buddy. This is Vicky's best performance- he has gone far ahead of his histrionics in Raazi.”
Coming back to Ranbir Kapoor, are you excited to see the new Circuit in Munna Bhai franchise?
