Total Dhamaal, even though has undergone a massive change in the cast, the curiousity attached to the film has only increased by the day. In fact, Indra Kumar called Total Dhamaal his biggest film yet, both in terms of cast and budget. Now adding to the intriguing elements, the film is also expected to feature good music. In fact, director Indra Kumar has recreated the 80s chartbuster ‘Paisa Yeh Paisa’ for the film.
The adventure comedy, Total Dhamaal, will feature the remake of this peppy number that was originally featured on Rishi Kapoor from the film Karz. The reason is also quite interesting! The third installment of the Dhamaal franchise like its other films revolves around greed and people chasing money. Hence considering the aptness of the song with the theme, the director decided to remake it for his next.
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.”
Furthermore, it will also feature the entire leading cast of the film. Here’s a glimpse of the look of the actors from the song. As you can see, the song picture features Jaaved Jaaferi, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Ajay Devgn, Indra Kumar, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Mishra and Pitobash. In fact, we hear that the entire team had a great time matching steps to the yesteryear hit.
Talking about the song, Anil Kapoor shared, “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.”
Also, Madhuri Dixit cited that ‘Paisa Yeh Paisa’ was one of her all-time favourites. “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.”
Happy to have the hit jodi of Anil-Madhuri in his film, Indra Kumar added, “They’re an iconic pair and they still create an electric atmosphere on screen together.”
An adventure comedy, Total Dhamaal is also touted to feature thrilling stunt sequences. Indra Kumar said, “We’ve used action based situations to create humour. We also have four more songs to shoot, which we’ll do in the days to come.”
