The film, which is a jungle drama was released on February 22. It’s a third film in the popular Dhamaal franchise. Earlier, talking about choosing to do comedies and how he trusts Indra Kumar with Total Dhamaal, Ajay told Mumbai Mirror, “It’s not about the franchise, it’s always about the script. Total Dhamaal makes you laugh and I want to be associated with clean comedies that appeal to families. As an actor, one looks out for things that have not been done before, Yes, there have been instances when I thought a film would work and it didn’t or even when I realised we weren’t achieving what we had set out to. The failure is always at the script level.”
He added, “This one had an interesting premise and since the script excited me, I was happy to come on board. Induji (Indra Kumar) has made some really funny films in the past, and I am hopeful we will succeed in tickling the funny bone this time too.”
