Shetty’s Golmaal Returns ready to roll

MUMBAI: Golmaal Returns is all set to hit the floors this November end. The film, a part two of last year’s hit Golmaal, is being produced by Ashtavinayak and Studio 18 and will be shot in Dubai and Mumbai.

Says Rohit Shetty, director of the film, “We have planned two schedules in Dubai, which will be followed by one in Mumbai. Though it is too early to say when the film will touch its finishing line, we are looking at mid of next year.” Golmaal was shot in Goa, Pune, Bangkok and Mauritius.

Regarding repetition of the starcast, except of Sharman Joshi who has been replaced by Shreyas Talpade, the rest remains the same. Adds Rohit, “Rimi won’t be a part of Golmaal Returns because it’s a new story altogether. We are not making a sequel, only the characters are the same. We will have four girls opposite four guys. Kareena Kapoor and Anjana Sukhani have been finalized as of now. We are in search for two more girls.” Talks are on with Esha Deol, but nothing has been finalized as of now.

Shetty is thrilled about Kareena’s character. He says, “She is playing a hilarious girl in the film. I am really looking forward to the shoot. Though she has been a part of Hulchul, which was a comedy flick, but this one is an out and out comic character.”

Vishal-Shekhar will be composing the music for this film as well.
