During a recent interview, Munna Bhai actor Arshad Warsi has talked about his upcoming movies Durgamati with Bhumi Pednekar and Bachchan Pandey with Akshay Kumar. On the occasion, Arshad has said that he has not watched the original movies Bhaagmathie starring Anushka Shetty on which the Bhumi Pednekar’s Durgamati is based upon. According to Arshad Warsi, Durgmati is a movie that has been made for the theaters. However, he is happy that the movie is releasing through OTT platforms at least now. Talking about his upcoming projects, Arshad Warsi has revealed that there are various big budget projects in the pipeline. He has also revealed tidbit about the plot of Bachchan Pandey and his character in it. Chemistry of Arshad with both Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani is expected to be amazing.
Revealing about the movie Bachchan Pandey, Arshad Warsi has said “In Bachchan Pandey, you’ll see Kriti (Sanon) and me in a lot of portion together, then there’s Akshay (Kumar) and me in a lot of portions together. So, I’m going to be having a great time with Kriti because we’re going to go nuts as we have some very inane and bizarre scenes, which are extremely funny and hilarious and crazy. Then I have crazy scenes with Akshay, too, which are again going to be nuts. I was looking forward to working with Akshay because we are like peas in a pod — same kind of sense of humour, bizarre madeness, and I think he’s outstanding, he’s extremely funny. I think Bachchan Pandey is going to be good fun, yaar, for people to watch as I know the scenes and I can see Akshay doing it. And if you know what I’m doing in the film, people can see me doing it. I’ll give you a hint: I’m playing a struggling tapori actor… see what I mean (laughs, when we tell that we can only imagine what he’ll do with the role). I’m playing a total Mumbaiyaa, total local guy, and also a bad actor. So you can image what is going to happen. It’ll be great fun.”
Being a gracious actor, Arshad Warsi has talked about the second season of web series Asur also. He has disclosed tentative release date of the web series during the time too.
