‘Total Dhamaal’ makers to spend a whopping amount on VFX?


The third installment of Indra Kumar’s hit comedy franchise ‘Dhamaal’ is expected to be an extravaganza. It looks like the director’s dream of making the latest installment bigger and grander than the previous ones have apparently come true. Rumors abound that after roping in Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Anil Kapoor, the makers are now reportedly looking to spend as much as Rs 12 crore on the film’s VFX itself.

As per a DNA report, opting for such extensive special effects was Devgn’s idea, who has played around with VFX a lot in his films like ‘Shivaay’ and ‘Singham’.

The reports suggest, “Indra Kumar (the director) has shot a majority of the film on the green screen. Over 60 percent of the movie will involve CGI work and the makers are spending a whopping Rs 12 crore for the same. The special effects team is working relentlessly to get the desired results.

Devgn, who is also co-producing ‘Total Dhamaal‘ with Ashok Thakeria, has brought his own special effects company, NY VFXWAALA, on board to achieve a highly stylised look for the film. The company even received a National Award for its work in ‘Shivaay’, the 2016 Devgn-directed fantasy thriller.

Though no official confirmation of the same is out as yet.

‘Total Dhamaal’ also has the original star cast of Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, and Jaaved Jaaferi with the addition of Esha Gupta. It is slated to release on December 7, 2018.
