Munnabhai's Circuit is a painter and we didn't even know! Bollywood actor Arshad Warsi, who is known predominantly for the comic roles that he has portrayed in movies like Rajkumar Hirani's Munnabhai films as well as Rohit Shetty's Golmaal films, spoke to a national daily and revealed that he has always had the passion to paint and used to paint a lot once upon a time. He claimed that he had to stop as his house would smell of the oil paint but he has started again as he has access to open areas.

Earlier last week, Arshad Warsi posted photos of his paintings through his Instagram handle and also wrote that he had made on of them before the Coronavirus pandemic had taken over the world. He shared that he had made the other one after the lockdown was announced. The actor captioned one with a vast water body as: "Did this sometime back when everything was fine..." while the one with an abstract face as "Just painted her ! I like her lockdown smile".
