Actor Arshad Warsi recently spoke out about being replaced by Salman Khan as Bigg Boss' host and by Akshay Kumar for Jolly LLB 2. Arshad Warsi is riding the popularity of Asur 2 at the moment. Before Salman took over the show, Arshad hosted Bigg Boss and portrayed the title role in the first Jolly LLB movie.

He mentioned that he and Akshay are going to work together in Jolly LLB 3 while explaining why Akshay took his place in Jolly LLB 2. “Now Jolly LLB 3 is in the making and you will see Akshay teaming up with me in the film," Arshad told Amar Ujala. This was the original plan – I’d feature in the first film, he’ll do the second.”

He further talked about being replaced by Salman Khan for hosting Bigg Boss. He said, "As for Bigg Boss, I could not do the next season as I had gone to London for a shoot. But I do believe Salman Khan is the best shot the show could have. No one could have done that job better than Salman. The reality show needs a ‘Dabangg’’ like Salman.”

Arshad even revealed that even his film Hulchul didn't make him happy. The movie, which was one of his first comedies, was a commercial hit. Along with Akshaye Khanna, Kareena Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, and Suniel Shetty, Hulchul was directed by Priyadarshan.

When the Hindi newspaper asked Arshad if he got selected for Hulchul after appearing as Circuit in Munnabhai MBBS, Arshad responded, “To tell you the truth, I did not enjoy working on Hulchul. It is a weird coincidence. Acting is my profession and I have to do it. But, personally, I was not too happy with the film. I just did my job and walked away. At times, a few things in life end up being not good.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Arshad's was recently seen in Asur 2, which is currently streaming on Jio Cinema.
