TOTAL DHAMAAL: Katrina Kaif, Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suneil Shetty
The winning Hera Pheri team is ready to create a laugh riot… this time with Katrina Kaif
MEENA IYER Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; November 21, 2009)
Life’s a laugh riot, especially when you have the hit combination of Hera Pheri — director Priyadarshan, actors Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal — joining forces again. Ratan Jain’s De Dana Dan has an ensemble cast of 26 of the top leading comic actors of Bollywood. The film’s releasing on November 27 and promises to have people rolling in the aisles. For that the audience will have to wait for sometime but BT got to witness the funny side of Akki, Suniel and Paresh on the sets of the film itself.
At around 6.30 am on a November morning, these 40-plus men were horsing around like precocious school kids and using their finger tips to do some serious counting. “I’ve done 15,” said Paresh to which Suniel added, “I’ve done eight.” And when Akki said, “I’ve done just five,” Paresh and Suniel chorused, “Loser, we’ve beaten you hollow.” Wondering what they were counting? It’s the number of movies each of them has done with the National Award winning director Priyadarshan. Looking at the trio, Ratan Jain, said, “For most of the filmmakers of Bollywood, this is a dream team. The Hera Pheri combo is back to entertain after a gap of nine years. Of course, as a bonus, there is the hit jodi of Akshay and Katrina who have a magical romantic track in the film.” Jain is on a high because his banner Venus Productions has had a long-standing association with Priyadarshan — having produced Hungama, Hulchul, Garam Masala and now De Dana Dan. And Katrina, who has delivered some of her biggest hits with Akshay, like Welcome, Namastey London and Singh is Kinng, is also hopeful that their pairing will work this time around too.
