Filmmaker Indra Kumar has announced the third film in the Dhamaal franchise. The film titled as Total Dhamaal will release on 7 December 2018.
The star cast has not been officially announced but the director has confirmed that the sequel will have Ajay Devgn replacing Sanjay Dutt, with Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit being the latest additions to the cast. Among the other principal cast members, Riteish Deshmukh, Javed Jaffery and Arshad Warsi have also come on board.
Earlier the director of the film Indra Kumar has wished to release Total Dhamaal during Diwali in 2018. That would have resulted in a clash with Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindustan. But now the makers have wisely avoided the clash.
Though Total Dhamal will still face a clash with Arjun Kapoor's Namastey Canada. Apart from that, Shahrukh Khan's Dwarf, Rohit Shetty's Simbba, Sushant Singh's Kedarnath and Salman's Dabangg 3 are also releasing in December next year.
