Actor Arshad Warsi says his film Welcome 2 Karachi deserves a Ghanta Award for being a bad film. However, he adds strongly that actor Irrfan Khan’s exit from the film was one of the reasons for it.
At the Ghanta Awards, Arshad was asked which of his films deserve a Ghanta Award.
“I have done many. Last was Welcome 2 Karachi. It was mind-blowing. It should get the award.”
He quipped: “It was Irrfan and me. But with Irrfan leaving, the whole fan (fun) went away with it.”
It was reported that Irrfan’s date issues prompted him to leave the movie. And producer Vashu Bhagnani said that Irrfan’s backing out at the last minute created problems for him to find a replacement.
About the concept of awarding bad films and bad actors through Ghanta Awards, he added: “Somewhere I think we, as a country and people, have become too serious. We need to lighten up.
Arshad was also seen in Guddu Rangeela last year.
