Aamir Khan wants to play ‘Circuit’ in ‘Munnabhai’ series


The shooting of the film ‘PK’ has brought together the director Rajkumar Hirani, Aamir Khan and Sanjay Dutt. During the off time at the sets the trio would seat together and have chit chat sessions. The common topic during discussion was the past movies of Rajkumar Hirani, namely ‘Munnabhai MBBS’, ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’. During these discussions Aamir Khan has stated his wish to play the role of circuit if the third installment of the Munnabhai series materializes.

A close source states that, “While shooting, the three of them would have conversations about Raju sir’s films. During discussions about the making of Munna Bhai (2003), Aamir would always say that he’d like to do the role of Circuit. He has always liked the films and he told Raju sir that if there ever was a third installment in the series, he would love to play that role. It helps that he’s played something similar in Rangeela (1995).”

Hirani, Dutt and Aamir share a warm relation in between them and it has only become stronger during the shooting of ‘PK’. Hirani has also previously worked with each actor separately in different films. It seems that the thinking for the 3rd installment of Munnabhai is well under way as the close source revealed, "The three of them are now in constant touch. Sanjay – who is in jail at the moment — has been writing letters to Raju and Aamir to know how the movie is shaping up. He has also loved Aamir’s idea." This is no doubt a great news for all the movie buffs and Munnabhai fans.

The spokesperson for director Rajkumar Hirani speaking about Aamir donning the role of Circuit, said that, "Aamir is often heard saying that he would like to do the role of Circuit. Aamir, Sanjay and Raju’s camaraderie is well known on the sets, which only makes it comfortable for them to work together."

Though Aamir Khan is a great actor and there is no doubt that he will bring the character of Circuit to life onscreen, we fill pangs for Arshad Warsi who made the character of Circuit so popular and we will miss him dearly. Interestingly If Aamir plays the role of Circuit, will he play a second fiddle to Munnabhai? Or will Circuit have more say in the third installment? It will be interesting to learn how the plot develops.
