The dynamic on-screen Jodi of Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit are set to come back together after 18 years for Indra Kumar’s ‘Total Dhamaal’. The duo started shooting for the adventure-comedy yesterday in Mumbai, with grooving to the title track.
Director Indra Kumar shares, “All three of us are shooting together 26 years after ‘Beta’ and I’m excited about reuniting with my blockbuster jodi. They play husband and wife in the film and have been prepping for a while but I can’t reveal any details except that Anil goes by the name of Avinash and all of us call him Avi,”
Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Jaaved Jaaferi, Riteish Deshmukh, Sanjay Mishra and Pitobash will join the duo for the song from today.
Anil and Madhuri will be shooting for the film for the next 15 days.
Indra Kumar adds, “It’s like a ‘Beta’ reunion. I remember a week before the film’s release, we picturised “Dhak Dhak”. We’d already received the censor certificate by then so we had to add another supplement to the certificate for the song which was incorporated later. It was a last-minute addition and created history. We were all blown away when we saw it for the first time,”
The trio took to Twitter to share their excitement.
