“I ask for forgiveness from the bottom of my heart. I am sorry that you had to be subjected to Ek Se Bure Do,” Arshad Warsi said.

The film which also stars Rajpal Yadav had been in the cans for five years.

“I know, it’s a ghost from my past. It was a mistake though I promise that this film will mark an end to all my pending releases,” said Arshad who is looking forward to the arrival of Shortkut - The Con Is On, Ishqian and his home production Kaun Bola.

Tell Arshad that Ek Se Bure Do has been a complete waste of time and money, and he is willing to crack a joke.

“First and foremost, let me salute you that you actually dared to watch the film. Not many people would have been as brave. But then pray for me as well! You are talking about those Rs300 that you would have spent on the movie ticket and popcorn? I lost reputation worth lakhs with this film.”

Produced by Suresh Seth, Ek Se Bure Do is directed by Tarique Khan. Natassha is the female lead in the film which also has debutant Tusha.

In a way, the release of this film would be a relief for Arshad who has moved into A-grade films.

Ek Se Bure Do was the second in line of Arshad’s old films to hit the screens. A few weeks back Kisse Pyaar Karoon arrived and disappeared in a single week. That film too took years to make and was a ‘let’s-get-this-one-out-of-the-way’ release.

Arshad may be praying that two more of his “ghosts from the past” - Jeetenge Hum and Zamaanat - arrive soon and clear his releases backlog.
