It is being reported that Rajkummar Hirani is so awe-struck with Ranbir Kapoor’s depiction of Sanjay Dutt in the Sanju biopic that he might be replacing Arshad Warsi with him for the third part of the Munna Bhai franchise. The speculations are hot topic on social media and fans of Circuit are not happy at all.

Just imagine if #MunnaBhai3 had @duttsanjay as Munna Bhai and #RanbirKapoor as circuit.
Yes the genious @RajkumarHirani is serious about this one.
According to me though @ArshadWarsi will be missed but this is fantastic for the film and character ARC.

This news was published by an Indian daily that new film has been signed including Ranbir Kapoor in Circuit’s character but the official confirmation is yet to come. If that is the case, then this would not be happening to Arshad Warsi for the first time despite delivering a stellar performance in a film. Arshad Warsi was replaced by Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar when a sequel was being made Jolly LLB 2 in 2017.
