Arshad Warsi Reveals His Original On Screen Name In Munna Bhai- Not Circuit

Actor Arshad Warsi had come to the film city to become the lead hero. Initially, he also did lead roles in some films, but his success came only from supporting characters. 

The film ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ released in 2003 had made Arshad Warsi a star. He was very much liked in the role of Circuit in this and in real life also the fans call him by the same name. But did you know that earlier the name of Arshad Warsi’s character in ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ was not Circuit, it was Khujli?

Arshad Warsi had once revealed this in an interview. He also told why and how he changed the character’s name and clothes. The actor had told that he had improvised a lot on his own for the role of Circuit. Many changes were made.

In an old interview given to Prabhu Chawla, Arshad Warsi had said that the real name of Circuit was Khujli. His clothes and his actions were very different. As soon as you hear the name you feel that it will just keep itching. What more can he do than that? So that whole package gets spoiled.

Arshad Warsi requested the film’s director Rajkumar Hirani to change the name of the character Along with his clothes. He said, in this first film (Munna Bhai MBBS) that he did, he had to improvise a lot because at that time Raju was not aware of his sense of humor. So he had to improvise a lot almost in every scene.
