There is no doubt that Indra Kumar’s upcoming comic-caper Total Dhamaal is going to be one of the biggest films of 2018. Starring an ensemble star cast of Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh, Ashish Chaudhary, Arshad Warsi and Javed Jaffrey in principal roles, Total Dhamaal is the next instalment of Dhamaal film franchise which began in 2007.
The film is going to be replete with many surprises for the audience and the latest surprise from the makers is that Ajay Devgn will have no heroine to romance in the movie. Recently, there were rumours that the superstar was recommending his Baadshaho co-star Ileana D’Cruz for the film.
However, a source close to the film has revealed, “There was no truth to the rumours about Ajay recommending Ileana for Total Dhamaal. It is true that the original script had scope for another actress besides Madhuri. But on second thoughts, the makers felt that it would be interesting to see Ajay without a love interest. If you see Dhamaal and Double Dhamaal, Sanjay Dutt’s character too didn’t have a leading lady opposite him.”
Talking about the commencement of the film, the source added that the project will mount floors in December. “The team is currently doing a recee in Uttar Pradesh. They will start shooting in Lucknow tentatively on December 15.”
Meanwhile, Ajay Devgn is currently shooting for his next film Raid, which is also based in Uttar Pradesh.
