Arshad Warsi came into the limelight in his 'Tere Mere Sapne' and never looked back. However, he shot to fame in his 'Munnabhai MBBS' starring Sanjay Dutt and his father late Sunil Dutt besides others. He has had stints with Sanjay Dutt in 'Munnabhai's sequel and 'Anthony Kaun Hai' ready to release soon. However, this seems he has had enough of Sanjay Dutt and comedy. So, he has decided to say goodbye to comedies for some time. He has stated this after his return from the shooting of 'Kabul Express' in Afghanistan.

The actor is very excited with his forthcoming movie where he has played the role of a television reporter along with his colleague John Abraham. This is in spite of the fact that both the Bollywood actors suffered severe cold there plus threats from Talibans there. Warsi wishes to repeat such roles in future. Arshad met with the media recently and chatted with it.

Excerpts of his chat:

What's 'Kabul Express' all about?

This is a movie much different from others and its unusual script has been written by Kabir Khan. This would have been a Hollywood classic had it been written in English.


Has this anything to do with the other ' Express'?

No, it has no relationship with that.

What about your another Sanjay Dutt starrer?

Oh, this is Raj Kaushal's 'Anthony Kaun Hai'. The movie is like 'Munnabhai MBBS' inasmuch as its cast is the same.

What's its genre?

This is a thriller movie.

Any other movie in the offing?

Yes, this is Inder Kumar's ' Dhamaal' starring Viveik Oberoi, Riteish Deshmukh, Javed Jaffery and Sanjay.

What's its story about?

Our guys come across a big chunk of money and chase it.

And, what about 'Munnabhai MBBS' sequel?

This is fantastic indeed. This will be larger than its prequel. We, I mean, Sanjay and I take our characters ahead from where we left in 'Munnabhai MBBS'.

What's your future plan?

I am thinking of directing a movie.

Why delay in the releases of your movies?

I am very anxiously awaiting their release.
