On being asked about the possibility of the films getting a third part in the franchise, Arshad told Indian Express, “Munna Bhai MBBS resurrected my career. I had no movies for three-four years before that. I was out of sight, gone! When will the next film in the Munnabhai series return? We have been waiting for 16 years since Lage Raho Munna Bhai. Honestly, I don’t think Part 3 will happen. I wish it would, that we could have a proper closure. We owe that much to the audience, but it’s been too long.”

He however, added, “A creative person feels claustrophobic if he is asked to do the same thing over and over again. As an actor, I want to move on. I’m sure Raju wants to do different things too, more so because for a director each film takes a few years of his life.”

The success of the two films had a domino effect on his career, as the actor went on to feature in consecutive comedy movies like Hulchul, the Golmaal series, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? and even Jolly LLB.

Arshad was recently seen as Daniel in an Amazon Prime Video anthology, Modern Love Mumbai.
