Remember how Rohit Shetty got his Golmaal actors Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade and Kunal Kemmu to flash five fingers in the recreated Aankh Marey song from Simmba? Well, that gesture certainly had the audience speculating that Rohit would be making Golmaal 5 soon – probably right after Simmba. However, that did not happen.
But now it seems, the filmmaker has kept his word and is reuniting with Ajay Devgn for the fifth part of the comic caper.
According to a report in a leading daily, the team has started work on the project, which will be backed by Rohit and Shibasish Sarkar.
The fourth film was a horror-comedy and the makers are now keen come up with yet another novel concept.
“Brainstorming sessions started earlier this year and they have finally zeroed in on an exciting plot,” the daily quoted a source close to the development as saying. Meanwhile, the film is expected to go on the floors next year and franchise regulars—Arshad, Tusshar, Kunal, Shreyas and Mukesh Tiwari—will also reprise their roles of Madhav, Lucky, Laxman 1, Laxman 2 and Vasooli Bhai respectively. The female lead will apparently be finalised early next year.
Ajay is excited that Golmaal has become the first Bollywood franchise to have a run of five films.
“Rohit and I are committed to the next instalment of Golmaal, because, like we said during one of our earliest films, it’s fun unlimited and my favourite series,” confirmed the actor. Work wise, Rohit is currently wrapping up Akshay Kumar-led Sooryavanshi, which is gearing up for a March 2020 release.
