After portraying the enigmatic and real-as-life character of Sanjay Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, the filmmaker is so impressed with Ranbir Kapoor’s performance that he might be replacing Arshad Warsi and play the role of ‘Circuit’ in Hirani’s next film – Munna Bhai 3.

It is not unknown and untruthful that Ranbir Kapoor’s acting performance in the Sanjay Dutt biopic Sanju was nothing short of epic – after all, he received appreciations from fans and critics alike. After the grand success of the Rajkumar Hirani film, the buzz is that the filmmaker is taking no breaks and is working on the next edition of Munna Bhai series – Munna Bhai 3. While the lead might be played by none other than Dutt, a report claims that Ranbir may share the screen space with Sanjay Dutt in the sequel of the comedy film.

Hirani is completely blown by Ranbir that he is considering the versatile actor to play the iconic character ‘Circuit’ in the film and replace Arshad Warsi, who played the character in previous two instalments. If rumours are to be believed, this will be a completely new role for Ranbir, after transforming himself completely to get into the shoes of Sanjay Dutt. If the rumours are to be believed, Hirani thinks that Ranbir and Sanjay will share a great camaraderie with each other in the next Munna Bhai sequel.

While Ranbir’s starring in the Munna Bhai sequel is yet to be officially confirmed, Ranbir is busy shooting in Bulgaria for the upcoming Ayan Mukerji superhero film – Brahmastra, co-starring actors including Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan. Sanjay and Ranbir are being roped for ‘Shamshera’, a film by Aditya Chopra’s Yash Raj Films and directed by Karan Malhotra – that too is awaiting an official confirmation.
