Indra Kumar shares, “Anil and Madhuri for both of them, its been a long time and they generally don’t do this kind of stunts anymore, but I made them jump from a height of maybe around 300 feet! And Anil and Madhuri both themselves did their actual stunts! They had to jump through a waterfall, their car goes over the waterfall and they are sitting on top of the car and they jump off and the car also comes down with them. So it was a shot which required them to do this. I didn’t want to use duplicates or stunt doubles and told them that they have to give this shot themselves.”
“I wanted a wide shot and looking at the scene, even i was quite apprehensive. If you told me to jump I wouldn’t! But they had the guts and bravado, being such great professionals that they jumped and it is a beautiful shot in the film. And there was a bridge which they needed to cross, it was again 200 feet in height and it was very weak and on that they had to drive. We had the fear that it might just collapse if there was the slightest pressure. But God has been kind and we got a great shot. Being a never seen before adventure comedy and with so much of stunts involved, you have to take a risk. We took the risks and the result is there for the audiences to see when the film releases!” he added.
The film is a sequel to 2011 film Double Dhamaal and the third installment of the Dhamaal film series.
Directed by Indra Kumar, the film also stars Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Jaaved Jaaferi, Sanjay Mishra and Pitobash.
The film is slated to release on February 22.
