Arshad Warsi has been here for a long time and despite giving many hits and having displayed immense potentials, he never could manage to get the appreciation he deserves. But now, post ‘Golmaal Returns’ and ‘Ishqiya’, things have taken a positive turn for the actor who has bagged in a whopping Rs 3 crores to be part of the third segment of the ongoing Gol Maal franchise. The producers Ashtavinayak finalized the deal with him this Monday. It may be mentioned here that the sum is even higher than Kareena Kapoor who has a 3-film deal with the producers.
Says Rohit, “We were really keen to have him in the film. And yes the price has been worked out between Arshad and the producers. So he’s on.”
Sharman Joshi will not be a part of ‘Gol Maal 3’ and reports have it that he turned down the third part of Gol Maal through his secretary.
Says Rohit Shetty, “Even before the scripting of Gol Maal 3 Sharman sent me a message through his secretary saying he had other plans. I immediately looked for a replacement and am very happy with Kunal Khemu. Any regrets about Sharman? None at all. In fact we met at the airport recently and there wasn’t any mention of Gol Maal 3. ”
That Rohit is feeling sour with Sharman and Arshad acting pricey after recent hits can be seen in this comment where without naming anyone he says, “There’re lots of very talented actors out here who are fabulous side attractions but can never be the main course.”
