GhaiFor his upcoming adventure comedy, Total Dhamaal, the third instalment of his popular comedy franchise director Indra Kumar has recreated the popular hit ‘Paisa Yeh Paisa’ from the movie Karz. The song features Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor, 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 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.”
For this incarnation of the song also features the rest of the cast Jaaved Jaaferi, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Ajay Devgn, Indra Kumar, Sanjay Mishra and Pitobash dancing to the classic beat.
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.”
After the shoot, Kumar tweeted, “Had Total Dhamaal dancing & directing my favourite, Paisa Yeh Paisa from #Karz! Thank you Subhash Ghai for giving us this track. Well done squad!“
Happy to have the hit jodi 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, which is all about greed and people chasing money, is touted to feature thrilling stunt sequences. Indra Kumar said, “We’ve used actionbased situations to create humour. 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, Anand Pandit and Fox Star Studios, and co-produced by Jayantilal Gada and Sangeeta Ahir releases on December 7, 2018.
