Riteish Deshmukh, who has blown us away with his amazing comic timings in ‘Housefull’, ‘Masti’, and ‘Dhamaal’ is back with the third franchise ‘Total Dhamaal’. Read on to know all he had to say.
Do you feel it is difficult for actors to be secure?
“I think the sense of security comes in your personality according to the person you are, not necessarily as an actor. You tend to get insecure with things around you. If you start showing your insecurity on the screen, it will create problems.”
From an actors perspective, is it the same experience that you have in the franchise that you feel shooting the first one?
“Let me start by saying that I have missed Ashish Choudhary and Sanjay Dutt both. Because I have shot the earlier two films with them. Having said that, which I knew when I read this script that they aren’t in the movie. I missed them on sets as well as I had a lot of fun shooting with Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit. At the same time, I think the film is layered with so much fun.”
Which is your favorite franchise?
“‘Dhamaal’ because I think the first part of ‘Dhamaal’ is the funniest film I was the part of. It is because no one is trying to be funny. Everybody was just enjoying their space and none of us knew that it would come across the way it did. Similar feeling I have with this film now.”
Total Dhamaal, the third installment in the ‘Dhamaal’ series, is all set to release on February 22. With just a fortnight left to the release of the film, the cast are busy in promoting the film full swing.
