Arshad Warsi rejects Raju Hirani's next for 'Ishqiya' sequel after clash of schedule

Initially there was much buzz about Arshad taking time to make up his mind about signing Hirani’s next. A source says, “After their Munnabhai series, it came as no surprise when Raju approached Arshad for his next. But after initially refusing the film, he later went ahead and signed it.”

However now straight from the horse’s mouth comes the news that Arshad is no longer part of the project. Arshad says, “My dates for the film were clashing with Ishqiya’s sequel. It is unfortunate but I hope to work with him again. Yaar dost hai woh mera! It’s my loss.”

It appears Arshad knows where to draw a line between his professional and personal life.

Raju’s spokesperson confirms that the actor is no longer part of the film.
