When Dharmendra and Shatrughan Sinha come together for a film, it is always an overdose of action and comedy. Last seen in KC Bokadia’s 1998 film Zulmo-situm, the duo will now be seen together again after 20 years in Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se to recreate the same magic of the 80s and 90s onscreen.
Last week when the veteran actors were on the sets, Dharamji confessed that shooting the scenes made them nostalgic. Commenting on the same, Dharmendra said, “We have been close ever since Dost, our first film together. His birthday is on December 9 while mine is a day earlier. He would bring gifts for my birthday and I jokingly flung them at him saying, ‘take it back’. We are like family. Shatru is like a younger brother to me. His wife Poonam played my younger sister in Aadmi Aur Insaan, her second film.”
The reunion turned into a treat for the crew as they saw the amazing chemistry between these two Bollywood stars. Sunny Deol even recommended Papa Deol that they should make a film with Shatrughan Sir and him. Revealing quite less about the scene from his latest comedy, the third addition to the Yamla Pagla Deewana franchise, Dharamji said, “He’s playing a judge and I’m a lawyer. It’s interesting because he must do his duty as well as maintain our relationship. I can’t reveal more because it will give the story out.”
