Arshad Warsi, famously known as ‘Circuit’ from Munna Bhai recently joined the cast of Akshay Kumar's Bachchan Pandey. The star was also seen in Durgamati in a supporting role alongside Bhumi Pednekar, and was co-produced by Akshay.
Talking to PTI about his upcoming role in Bachchan Pandey, he'd said, "I am playing a struggling actor from Bombay. My scenes are with Kriti Sanon. I am not part of Akshay’s gang we both are on opposite sides."
The star, famous for his comic timing and memorable roles in movies like Munna Bhai, Dhamaal and the Golmaal series, believed that his film Fraud Saiyaan was a laugh riot despite not going down well with the audience.
Arshad Warsi has acted with Saurabh Shukla in the past and they both have proven to be an expert comic jodi. The duo did manage to recreate their magic on screen just like they did in Jolly LLB or Lage Raho Munna Bhai.
