Ajay Devgn’s role to be extended in Total Dhamaal?
Reportedly, after his role got extended in the film, the actor will now shoot for 40-45 days instead of just 30 days.
The success of his recently released comedy film Golmaal Again has boosted Ajay Devgn’s confidence a lot and hence the actor wants to explore more opportunities in the genre. Before the Rohit Shetty directorial hit the screen, there were reports that Ajay had walked out of Indra Kumar’s comedy film Total Dhamaal, the third installment of the Dhamaal film franchise. However, soon after the success of Golmaal Again, the news surfaced that the actor is very much part of the project. The latest we hear that the makers of the forthcoming comic-caper have given more screen time to the superstar.
According to a source, “It’s true that Ajay’s role has been extended by 10-15 days in Total Dhamaal so now instead of 30, he will shoot for 40-45 days more. He is the main lead in the film – something like the Golmaal series. And his remuneration has increased too.”
The source adds, “Ajay has shown his brilliance in comedy recently in Golmaal Again which is a blockbuster. Initially, his role in Total Dhamaal was one of a highly specialized appearance but now his role will be there throughout the film. It’s the kind of role that Sanjay Dutt had played in Dhamaal and Double Dhamaal. Ajay’s role is a quirky one and his character is pivotal to the film. It’s something similar to what he had done in Masti as he takes the cases of Arshad (Warsi), Ashish (Chaudhary) and Riteish (Deshmukh) in a very tongue-in-cheek manner. Ajay liked the way his role has shaped up, it was specially written for keeping Ajay in mind. He immediately agreed when Indra Kumar approached him to extend the number of days of shooting required. The film will be shot in Uttar Pradesh from December 15 this year”.
The captain of the ship, Indra Kumar also says, “It is Ajay Devgn’s film and his role is simply outstanding! He is there right from the beginning to the end and it’s a full-fledged role like Sanjay Dutt had earlier in the last two Dhamaals. We are doing a recce in UP and Lucknow and will start shooting for the film with Ajay from December this year”.
