In a first-of-its-kind activity, director Sajid Khan will be releasing behind-the-scene videos documenting the entire 71 day schedule of ‘Humshakals’. The first four videos are now live and you can see what went on on set with stars Saif Ali Khan, Ram Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh, Tamannaah Bhatia, Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta. ‘Humshakals’ is slated to release on 20th June, 2014.
Right at the onset of the first video in the first day of the shoot, director Sajid Khan is heard announcing, “Let’s make a killer of a film… and lets have fun.” The cast and crew share cheerful and lively anecdotes from the sets: some of it include actor Ram Kapoor going on a kissing spree during the shoot and Riteish Deshmukh who is seen breaking into a dance and singing a popular Marathi song.
Sajid Khan went a step ahead of ‘Housefull 2’ and invented a four way slap and punch for this movie. The third video shows glimpses of their songs, Caller Tune and Hum Pagal Nehi Hai being shot. Satish Shah, here too appears in his comedic best, as he mimics the world’s greatest dictators like Hitler and Saddam Hussain during a particular sequence. In the end, Riteish and Sajid try to pull Bipasha Basu’s leg during one of the shoot days. Kareena Kapoor, actress and wife of Saif Ali Khan makes an appearance in the video as she is shown dropping in on the sets of ‘Humshakals’ as well.
We also see Ganesh Acharya choreographing the steps for the song Caller Tune. Director Sajid Khan defines the steps as being the simplest in the world. The song has been set against the backdrop of the beautiful city of London. Fans will get a chance to see the off-screen camaraderie between the cast and the crew during the shoot of the movie in this video as well.
‘Humshakals’ promises nine times the fun and it’s clear that this ride will get whackier with every behind-the-scene video that is being released. The comedy film stars Saif Ali Khan, Ram Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh in triple roles – a never-before for Indian cinema, along with Tamannaah Bhatia, Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta as the leading ladies. Directed by Sajid Khan, produced by Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment, and presented by Fox Star Studios, ‘Humshakals’ is slated to release on 20th June, 2014.
