Nowadays, recreating old songs has become a new sensation, especially re-adapting songs from the 80’s and 90’s era.
Indra Kumar who is directing Total Dhamaal, the third instalment of the Dhamaal franchise, will recreate the song ‘Paisa Yeh Paisa’ from Subhash Ghai’s 1980 film, Karz.
The song will be featuring the cast which includes: Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Jaaved Jaaferi, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Sanjay Mishra, Pitobash as well as Indra Kumar.
With regards to the song, Anil Kapoor expressed to the media: “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.”
On the other hand, Madhuri, who cited ‘Paisa Yeh Paisa’ as one of her all-time favourites said, “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.”
Was Madhuri the best dancer on the sets of the song? To this, the actor humbly 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.”
Talking about the super-hit ‘Dhak Dhak’ Jodi of Anil and Madhuri, Indra said, “They’re an iconic pair and they still create an electric atmosphere on screen together.”
An adventure comedy, Total Dhamaal is rumoured to feature thrilling stunt sequences. Indra 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.”
Total Dhamaal is scheduled to release on December 7, 2018.
