The audiences will get to see more of the talented Arshad Warsi aka Circuit in the coming few years, with Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd signing on the actor for a three-film deal. The contract excludes Golmaal Returns, directed by Rohit Shetty.
Producer Ashtavinayak confirms: "Ashtavinayak Ltd has signed Arshad Warsi for a three-film deal. We want to move further our association with Arshad as he is extremely talented and a thorough professional." The subjects will range from romance to action to drama.
Confident that the deal will maintain the standards set by the production house and by himself, Arshad says: "Ashtavinayak goes all out while making a film. For the coming three films, we will sit together and decide on the scripts and directors mutually. If I find an interesting script, they would be willing to produce it."
When asked about his character in Golmaal Returns Arshad points out that the movie is not a sequel in the proper sense, though it stars Ajay Devgan, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Kareena Kapoor and Anjana Sukhnani. "So though the stars are the same, the characters are different. I play a cop," he says.
Arshad's upcoming releases are Ashok Thakeria's Dhamaal, directed by Indra Kumar, Anil Kapoor's Shortcut, Leena Yadav's Teen Patti, Vivek Agnihotri's Goal and Rajkumar Hirani's Munnbhai Chale Amreeka. Seems Circuit is all connected these days.
