One of Bollywood’s most prominent on-screen couples, Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor are all set to reunite on screen after a hiatus of 17 long years!
Pairing up for Indra Kumar’s upcoming film Total Dhamaal – the third installment in the Dhamaal series, Madhuri and Anil will be seen together after Pukar, which released in 2000.
According to an Indian publication, the news was confirmed by the director herself, as she spoke about the film starting its production from next year.
“Yes, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit have been paired in Total Dhamaal which goes on the floors in January in Mumbai,” Indra Kumar confirmed.
Seen together in major blockbuster films like Beta, Tezaab, and Ram Lakhan, amongst others, the two remained the heartthrobs of the Indian film industry throughout the late 80s and 90s with their passionate on-screen chemistry. However, 17 years since their last film together, it seems that the romance factor may have been switched to the comedy genre.
“This film is essentially a comedy so don’t expect any ‘Dhak Dhak’ but I promise total dhamaal,” the director said. “Anil and Madhuri have always been a great pair to work with and getting them together again is a dream.”
Total Dhamaal also features Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi and Javed Jafferi apart from Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit.
