Anil Kapoor has shared the screen with Madhuri Dixit in a number of films and they are one of the most loved on-screen pairings. The actor recently spoke about working with Dixit again in ‘Total Dhamaal’.
“With Madhuri, obviously it was so exciting. Matter of the fact is that just like the audience is excited to see us on the big screen, even we are excited to see each other on the big screen together. At least I am! We saw it already on the monitor during the shoots and it looked really nice for us to see each other, the camaraderie that we share, the chemistry that we have, the give and take of dialogue, all of this was fun to watch. I’m glad that we reunited for a hardcore commercial film rather than an arty film. I feel that we came back after 18 years in a good big commercial film. That’s what I feel at least. The final decision would be of the audience, of course,” said Kapoor, in a recent interview with Box Office India.
On the challenges of working in comedy films, Kapoor also shared, “Comedy should be well written. If the script is well written then our job becomes much easier then and there. I think this was a very well written film. The gags, the punches were already very well written. Otherwise, sometimes the director and writers expect us to make the gag. We do improvise but if the material is written well, then it becomes easier. So I feel the challenge becomes bigger if the writing is not good. Also, if the director has a sense of comedy and knows what works and what doesn’t work then it becomes really easy. So with this film, it was well written and Indra Kumar, who in real life is also a Gujarati actor, has a good sense of comic time.”
‘Total Dhamaal’ also stars Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi and a whole host of others. It’s directed by Indra Kumar and schedule for release on 22nd February.
