Director Rohit Shetty’s first brush with fame was his 2006 hit Golmaal. He went on to make two sequels, Golmaal Returns (2008) and Golmaal 3 (2010), and is keen on a fourth film in the series. However, he hasn’t been able to find a powerful script for it. Writer duo Sajid-Farhad admit that Rohit has been in constant touch with them to finalise a script, and has even rejected a few options.

“Golmaal 3 is our favourite film, so to be bigger and better than that, we need a great story. We’ve discussed several scripts for Golmaal 4, but nothing has worked out yet. We’ve rejected a few as they didn’t excite us,” says Sajid.

In the meantime, Rohit, as well as Sajid-Farhad, are keeping themselves busy with other projects. Sajid says, “Rohit is presently focussing on Chennai Express with Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. After that, he will start working on Singham 2. I don’t think Golmaal 4 will happen before that.”

As for the writers, their first directorial venture, starring Akshay Kumar and Tamannaah Bhatia, will go on the floors on July 1. “We’ll put all our energy into the making of this film, titled, It’s Entertainment. Since Golmaal is already a brand, we can announce that film whenever we are ready,” says Sajid.
