Arshad Warsi : the ‘Circuit’. He is unassuming, simple, and does not possess the typical quality of an Indian actor. Yet Arshad Warsi has been able to execute and add colour and vibrance to simple roles through sheer talent and brilliance.
Born on 19th April 1968 Arshad Warsi became an orphan at the age of fourteen. He had a keen interest in dance and later started a dancing school of his own. Arshad got his first break in Amitabh Bachchans production, Tere Mere Sapne. Like his debut his forthcoming films failed to create an impact on the audience. Arshads career seemed to be fading away and what he needed was a successful movie to create a firm ground in Bollywood.
It was only with Munna Bhai MBBS that Arshad came into the limelight. It was the best come back movie that one could have dreamt of. With his brilliant performance in Munna Bhai as Circiut, Arshad has created a special place in the heart of his audiences and also this industry. The simple, light hearted, amusing “circuit” is going to stay alive in the minds of his fans for a long period of time. To Bollywood one more name has been added to the list of great comedians. But Arshad Warsi possesses the additional art of making his characters so lovable, acceptable and endearing.
Here’s hoping that he reaches the zenith of his acting career, till then his fans shall eagerly wait for Arshad to recreate his magic in Munna Bhai Chale America.
