It was revealed a few weeks ago that Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit will be reuniting on screen in Indra Kumar’s ‘Total Dhamaal’.
Its a gap of 26 years that Kapoor, Dixit and Kumar will be working together. Their last outing together was ‘Beta’. Talking about the reunion, Kumar told Mirror, “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.”
The film, which also stars Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Jaaved Jaaferi, Riteish Deshmukh and Sanjay Mishra, will be joining Kapoor and Dixit for a song this weekend. Kumar added, “If I was in their place, I’d be nervous too. Anil and Madhuri have done so many films together and shouldn’t be nervous but the rest of the cast will be shivering.”
“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,” reminisces Kumar who describes this Ajay Devgn and Fox Star Studios production as his “most prestigious and ambitious project”, Kumar signed off.
