Arshad Warsi has performed a wide variety of personalities throughout the course of his two-decade profession, from serious roles in movies like Jolly LLB and Sehar to comedic roles in the Golmaal and Munnabhai franchises. Arshad not only portrays the main character in his next movie Jeevan Beema Yojana, but he also has a double part, according to the sources.
The movie, a humorous crime parody directed by Abhishek Dogra (who earlier helmed Dolly Ki Doli), began shooting in Mumbai a few days ago and will be shot in various locations throughout the town. Arshad will portray two diametrically opposed characters, Jeevan and Bheema, who have the same physical appearance. One is from the world of white-collar professionals, while the other is from the world of crime. What occurs when their paths collide is the central theme of the movie. The actor said, My co-stars are Sanjeeda Sheikh, Pooja Chopra, Bijendra Kala, and Vijay Raaz, and you can’t imagine how much fun we have off camera. “Apne aap ho jaati hai, improvisation.”
Jeevan Bheema Yojana has a lot of entertainment packed in with some drama. Arshad is one of those actors who can appear both naive and crafty at the same time; he’s underappreciated, and I’ve long admired his work. It’s his first time playing two different personalities in a single film. When you have performers like Arshad and Vijay Raaz in your movie, it makes your job easier as a filmmaker. Their timing is flawless, director Abhishek Dogra said.
About Arshad Warsi, he worked as an assistant director to Mahesh Bhatt’s movie Kaash (1987) and choreographed a song in Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja prior making his debut appearance (1993). He began his acting in 1996 with the box office hit Tere Mere Sapne. His performance as Circuit in the comic films Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003) and Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), for which he earned the Filmfare Award for Best Performer in a Comic Role, represented a watershed moment in his profession.
