Bollywood actor Javed Jaffrey, who is gearing up for the release of his film Total Dhamaal has stated special effects as the reason behind postponing the film to February next year. The multi-starrer comedy was earlier scheduled to release on December 7, 2018 but the makers postponed the release date to February 22, 2019.
Javed said, "There are lots of special effects in it and it was consuming lot of time. Makers also felt that if they release film in December then it wouldn't be nice for the film as there are some big releases in that month and they didn't want to compromise on anything that is the reason why they shifted it to February next year."
Total Dhamaal is the third installment of successful franchise Dhamaal which originally starred Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey and Riteish Deshmukh but in the third part, the makers have brought in new addition to its original cast.
Talking about it, Javed said, "It's a Total Dhamaal in its true sense. There is Ajay Devgn, Boman Irani, Johny Lever and Sanjay Mishra in the film and apart from them, there is Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh and me in it, who have earlier worked together in two parts of Dhamaal franchise."
Javed and his brother Naved Jaffrey hosted a popular dance competition show on television called Boogie Woogie which started in 1996 and it went off air on March 2014. Asked whether he has any plans to revive the show, Javed said, "We are working on something. It may not be Boogie Woogie but we are doing something in similar space. It will be a dance show with a hint of comedy."
Total Dhamaal is directed and co-produced by Indra Kumar. It is the sequel to 2011 film Double Dhamaal.
