Arshad, Ajay to star in Golmaal sequel
The shooting for the film, to be directed by Rohit Shetty, will start by February-end, informs Hiren Kotwani.india Updated: Jan 02, 2007 18:06 IST
If something works once, chances are it will work again goes the mantra in tinsel town. And so Ajay Devgan and Arshad Warsi have teamed up with Rohit Shetty once again.
Kumar Mangat is producing Shetty’s next film with the two actors. “Ajay will certainly feature in the film,” Shetty had said after bagging the film, adding, “It will be a multi-starrer comedy and after scripting, we will start casting for the other roles.” Even Mangat wanted Devgan in his next film, after he produced Omkara with director Vishal Bharadwaj.
On Warsi’s inclusion into the project, Mangat said, “Arshad has liked the script and is willing to do the film. But things can be confirmed only after the dates are worked out. 99 per cent, he is on.”
Interestingly, there were some problems between the two actors after the first spell of Golmaal in Goa in 2005. Apparently, Warsi wanted Devgan to support him in his film, the Raj Kaushal-directed Anthony Kaun Hai?
But Devgan couldn’t as he was shooting for Mangat’s Omkara around the same time. As a result, Warsi dilly-dallied dates for Golmaal. But all’s well after it became a hit and they will work together again.
Mangat is planning to start shooting by February-end.
Warsi, who’s heading to London for the shooting of UTV’s Goal with John Abraham and Bipasha Basu, is expected to be back in time for Mangat’s film. Apart from the two actors, the makers are also yet to finalise casting for the rest of the roles.
“By the end of this week, I should be able to confirm one more hero and the heroine of the film, which will also feature known character actors,” says Mangat.
