View Lage Raho Munnabhai Movie StillsDirector Raj Kumar Hirani and his co-writer Abhijat Joshi have decided not to restrict their two endearing creations - Munna and Circuit - to the large screen. They'll soon be seen as part of a comic book series.

Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi tickled the funny bone of audiences as Munna and Circuit respectively in the hit movies "Munnabhai M.B.B.S." and "Lage Raho Munna Bhai".

"And why just comic books? We've a large number of offers to turn Munna and Circuit's adventures into animation films, cartoon strips, you name it," Hirani told IANS.

In fact, the blueprint for the comic strips has already been made.

"We've drawn some sketches for Munna and Circuit which would hopefully serve as illustrations in a series of adventures, and we like what we see. If things go well we'll soon be putting out Circuit-Munna comic books for public consumption," said Hirani.

The comic books and the proposed animation films will be marketed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra Productions, which had produced the two films as well.

Arshad is delighted by the idea. "Wow! To actually feature in comic books, like Superman or Spiderman! Imagine what my son Zeke will have to tell his friends in school. 'My father the superhero!'

"But seriously, I've worked very hard on making my character of Circuit as Munna's funny yet poignant right hand man. So, yes, I'd love to be part of the comic books."
