Dhamaal series in a row has been entertaining comedy lovers. But its third entity will have to wait longer in the wings. The reason is producers plan to kickstart the sequel to Masti (2004) over the next six months. Total Dhamaal with Riteish Deshmukh, Sanjay Dutt, Ashish Chowdhry, Arshad Warsi and Javed Jaffery is expected to go on floors next year immediately after Masti 2 finishes up. Producer Ashok Thakeria confirms the development and as of now, scripts are being worked out for both the films.
The Masti sequel will feature most stars from the first movie including Riteish, Genelia D’Souza and Aftab Shivdasani, whereas, Total Dhamaal is that it’s likely to feature two more names: Aftab Shivdasani and a cameo by Jacqueline Fernandez. Thakeria contends that the key cast will be the same as Double Dhamaal but it’s early right now to discuss the rest of the line-up including Mallika Sherawat, who, during Double Dhamaal’s premiere at IIFA, Toronto, walked the green carpet but didn’t promote the movie. It’s also believed that director Indra Kumar is looking for replacements for mallika sherawat and Kangana Ranaut for Total Dhamaal.
