Bollywood has given us many on-screen duos which defined friendships. One of the most hilarious and favourite duos that reigns supreme in the world of comedy to date is Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi. Yes, it’s none other than Munna Bhai and Circuit. Sanjay and Arshad’s timing of comedy, humour and acting prowess proved that there can’t be another Munna Bhai and Circuit. Now, news has emerged that the two will be starring in the third part of the movie Welcome.

Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi to star in Welcome 3

Director Anees Bazmee has decided to treat the fans with the third installment of the movie Welcome. Pinkvilla reported that Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi will be replacing Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar’s characters in the Welcome movie franchise. A source close to the development stated, “Of the 3 films under Firoz Nadiadwala’s banner, Welcome might be the first to take off as the script is ready a while back. The filmmaker is planning to bring a spin in the narrative of this comic caper by getting Sanjay Dutt and Arshad to play the notorious gangsters – Majnu and Uday. The duo have already shown their chemistry as Munna and Circuit and now it will be time to explore the dimension in a new franchise.”

Just like Sanjay and Arshad set a mark of being one of the most iconic duos in comedy, Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor did the same. While Nana played the role of Uday Shetty, Anil perfectly fits the character of Majnu Bhai. The two were immensely loved on-screen in the first part of the movie that was released in 2007 – Welcome. And then they reprised their role again in Welcome Back that was released in 2015.
