Filmmaker Indra Kumar recreates 80s hit song ‘Paisa Yeh Paisa’ Total Dhamaal!
The multi-starrer film Total Dhamaal is a sequel to the Dhamaal film franchise.
Director Indra Kumar has recreated the iconic song ‘Paisa Yeh Paisa’ from the Subhash Ghai directorial Karz for his next adventure comedy, Total Dhamaal, the third installment of his popular comedy franchise which is all about greed and people chasing money. The recreated song features Javed Jaffery, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Ajay Devgn, Indra Kumar, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Mishra and Pitobash who had a great time matching steps to the yesteryear hit.
Talking about the song, Anil Kapoor shares, “It feels great to be dancing to this classic number. I am matching steps with all these young stars and it feels great to be able to give it your best”.
Madhuri Dixit cited Paisa Yeh Paisa as one of her all-time favorites. “I’m really happy that Indra Kumar has decided to revisit this classic number. It’s a song that I’ve grooved to for so many years. Even after so long, it retains its energy,” she said.
The actress, who is known for her dancing talent as much as for her acting chops, was modest when asked if she was the best dancer on the set. She replied, “I can’t say I’m the best, because we have Jaaved and Arshad, who are trained dancers and a lot better than me. But yes, you can say that I am the best woman dancer in the film.”
Indra Kumar called Total Dhamaal his biggest film yet, both in terms of cast and budget. Explaining the reason behind recreating the 80s’ track, he said, “Subhashji and his wonderful composers Laxmikant-Pyarelalji created this song many years ago and it’s still relevant. Even now, people are chasing money. So, this song fits the theme of our film perfectly.”
Happy to have the hit pair of Anil-Madhuri in his film, he added, “They’re an iconic pair and they still create an electric atmosphere on screen together.”
An adventure comedy, Total Dhamaal is touted to feature thrilling stunt sequences. Indra Kumar said, “We’ve used action-based situations to create humor. We also have four more songs to shoot, which we’ll do in the days to come.”
Total Dhamaal, presented by Fox Star Studios, produced by Ajay Devgn Ffilms, Indra Kumar, Ashok Thakeria, Sri Adhikari Brothers and Anand Pandit, and co-produced by Jayantilal Gada and Sangeeta Ahir, releases on December 7, 2018.
