Everyone who was a big fan of Khel (1992) and Beta (1992) will be very excited to hear this good news. We might just see Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit-Nene romancing each other on screen again and it will be in a comedy setting of Total Dhamaal. Yup, Indra Kumar, the director of the previous two Dhamaal films, has approached Madhuri to star opposite Anil Kapoor in a film which will have an ensemble cast of Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, and more.
Talking about the same, a trade source tells a leading media portal, “Indra Kumar approached Madhuri Dixit Nene a couple of months ago and is currently in talks with her. The negotiations are in the final stages. In the comedy franchise, she and Anil will romance each other. If she gives her nod for Total Dhamaal it will be a reunion of sorts for everyone on board for the project. She will be back with Indra Kumar after 22 years (had last done Raja with him in 1995) who had given her three of her biggest hits in Dil, Beta and Raja. Madhuri will also reunite after 25 years with one of her favourite co-stars Anil Kapoor with whom she was last seen in Khel (1992) and Beta (1992) and also Ajay Devgn with whom she was seen within Deepak Shivdasani’s love triangle, Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke (2001).” ALSO READ: Kiku Sharda Defends Kapil Sharma, Rubbishes Reports Of Cancelling Shoots With Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn Being A Strategy
For now, the finalised actors: Ajay, Arshad, Riteish, and Anil start shooting early next year for the film. The previous Dhamaal installments revolved around 4 worthless vagabonds who chased a treasure in order to cheat their way to their daily bread. Sanjay Dutt, who previously starred in the franchise as the corrupt police inspector will not be seen in the third installment of the franchise.
