    Yesteryear's star Dharmendra is back with a bang, this time with his sons Sunny and Bobby in Yamla Pagla Deewana. As the film hits theatres ...

  • Dharmendra, Bobby, Sunny

    Dharmendra paaji and his two puttars Sunny and Bobby have come together for this film.

  • According to the director, the film's title is inspired from the song Main Jat Yamla Pagla Deewana from the 1975 film, Pratiggya also starring Dharmendra.

  • The film is scheduled for release on January 14, 2011.

  • Dharmendra apparently turned lyricist for the movie.

  • Sunny and Bobby were also seen together in Dillagi opposite Urmila Matondkar.

  • Yamla Pagla Deewana is directed by Kyun Ho Gaya Na director Sameer Karnik.

  • Reportedly, Mahek Chahal of Nayee Padosan fame has been signed for an item number, after Malaika, Urmila and Ameesha said no to the item dance ...

  • The theatrical trailer of Yamla Pagla Deewana was released on 5 November 2010.

Veteran Bollywood actor Dharmendra, who is seen shaking a leg in the popular number Tinku Jiya from his upcoming release Yamla Pagla Deewana, says that he was comfortable doing the item song.

"It was easy for me to do the item song. I was very comfortable doing it. Once the camera is on I open up. If I would have been uncomfortable then I wouldn't have been in the industry since last 50 years or so," said the 75-year-old.

After Malaika Arora's Munni Badnaam Hui and Katrina Kaif's Shiela Ki Jawani,  now its Tinku Jiya... from Yamla..., which is climbing high on the countdown chart.

Directed by Samir Karnik, the film, releasing on January 14, is a comedy of confusion where the Deols, Sunny, Bobby and Dharmendra, will be seen in a never seen avatar.

"Since the promos have been released we are getting good reviews about the film. We hope that Yamla Pagla Deewana turns out to be the biggest hit," the 75-year-old actor said.

Meanwhile, Dharmendra and Sunny Deol have launched an entertainment portal, www.ticketplease.com.

The website is a one-stop portal for tickets to movies, concerts, plays and sports events. It enables people to buy tickets, see film reviews, celebrity news, gossip, celebrity blogs, photographs and videos.

Actor Ajay Devgn was the first one to buy the tickets of Dharmendra's home production.

"We have been working on it for the past one year with a team. When they came to me with the concept I liked the idea found it interesting and agreed it to be a part of it," Ajay said.

Dharmendra said, "In our times I used to stand in long queues specially to see Dilip Sahab's films. My clothes used to get torn. But that time was really memorable…I miss those moments. Today as technology is evolving faster things are becoming simpler for the common man," he added.
