Rohit Shetty directed his first film, Zameen in Bollywood in 2003. By 2012, till Bol Bachchan he had directed eight films and all of them had Ajay Devgn in the lead.
In 2013, he drifted towards Shah Rukh Khan and delivered the most commercially successful film of his career with Chennai Express. Though he made Singham Returns with Ajay Devgn in 2014, all eyes were on his next with Shah Rukh, Dilwale.
Dilwale became one of the biggest flops of 2015 and Shetty’s interviews gave enough hints that all is not well between him and King Khan.
And now, one of the most successful Bollywood diectors, is back with Golmaal 4, his next in the line of Golmaal franchise that made him a force to reckon with.
Devgn released the first look of Golmaal 4 on Tuesday: The grand star-cast of the film also includes Tabu, a actor known for her serious films.
Golmaal 4 will have all the usual suspects who made previous Golmalls such a laugh riot: Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Khemu, Shreyas Talpade and Parineeti Chopra, who will be replacing Kareena Kapoor Khan, is the latest entry to the franchise.
The film comes after 7 years of its third instalment, which couldn’t do well at the box office. In fact, Rohit Shetty’s last film Dilwale also failed at the box office which makes this film even more crucial for the director. Ajay, on the other hand, had a good run with his last film, Shivaay. The actor has wrapped up the shoot of his film, Baadshaho as well.
During the promotions of Shivaay, Ajay agreed that Golmaal Returns was the weakest instalment of the Golmaal series. He said, “We all felt that it was a crap as compared to its other parts and I totally agree with Rohit. We got a little carried away in Golmaal 2. There were some dialogues, which were not suited for the kind of the genre we were following. But I think we realised it and then we changed it in ‘Golmaal 3’ again. So, second was the weakest.”
The release date of Golmaal 4 hasn’t been announced yet.
