Principal photography of Indra Kumar’s Total Dhamaal, which is the sequel to Double Dhamaal begins now. Total Dhamaal is the third film in the franchise as Double Dhamaal came out in 2011. Total Dhamaal retains the key players Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey, Ritesh Deshmukh and adds all 90’s superstar like Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit in the cast. Sanjay Dutt, who was the part of earlier 2 films is not present in the third part. Director Indra Kumar who was responsible for creating the hilarious first and second part is retaining his chair to make this one as well.
Presence of Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit directs towards a lot of 90’s homage and tribute in the film, which should be a brand of humor yet unexplored in Dhamaal franchise. Ajay has decided to co-produce the film with Fox star India and the film will be a big budget affair. Aamir Khan could be seen standing right in center of the picture is not there because he is the part of film in any capacity but he is just spending time with his old friends in there. Aamir Khan gave the clap to first short of the film.
Makers have decided to release the Total Dhamaal on 7 December 2018 despite of the fact that it is not a festival or a national holiday. Most of the festivals of 2018 are already booked by superstars hence it would have been difficult for a film like Total Dhamaal to clash with a Salman or an Aamir Khan release. Prolific comedy actor Boman Irani has also joined the cast of the film as there is hardly any multi-starrer comedies these days when Irani does not act as the third wheel. Irani’s got Munnbhai, Housefull and now Dhamaal franchise in his ever expanding filmography. Trailer and songs of the film will be out in a couple of months.
