Director of the hit Golmaal franchise, Rohit Shetty, who was recently seen in the reality show The Big Switch playing judge, has now shot a cameo in Ekta Kapoor’s Kya Super Cool Hai Hum (KSKHH).
Tusshar Kapoor, who plays the lead in the film, confirms, “Yes, Rohit is doing a cameo in the film. I have shot with him and it was fun.” Tusshar and Rohit are known to be good friends, having worked on all three Golmaal films.
Additionally, the actor was instrumental in getting Rohit on board for the project. The production team approached him for the cameo but as he was busy shooting Bol Bachchan, talks couldn’t progress. Tusshar then convinced Rohit to come on board. “He had never turned down the cameo to begin with. But he agreed after I spoke to him,” the actor says.
In KSKHH, Rohit plays himself, a director who is shy and quiet on screen. The filmmakers wrapped up Rohit’s portion in few hours as Ekta didn’t want to take much of his time. “We wanted him to be happy as that’s how he is when work is done quickly,” Tusshar smiles. Can we expect another Golmaal film? “I have no clue about that,” he says.
Directed by Sachin Yardi, Kya Super Kool Hai Hum is a sequel to the 2005 hit, Kya Kool Hai Hum starring Riteish Deshmukh and Tusshar Kapoor along with Neha Sharma and Sarah Jane-Dias.
