“Indra Kumar approached Madhuri Dixit Nene a couple of months ago and is currently in talks with her. The negotiations are in the final stages. In the comedy franchise, she and Anil will romance each other. If she gives her nod for Total Dhamaal it will be a reunion of sorts for everyone on board for the project. She will be back with Indra Kumar after 22 years (had last done Raja with him in 1995) who had given her three of her biggest hits in Dil, Beta and Raja. Madhuri will also reunite after 25 years with one of her favourite co-stars Anil Kapoor with whom she was last seen in Khel (1992) and Beta (1992) and also Ajay Devgn with whom she was seen within Deepak Shivdasani’s love triangle, Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke (2001),” a trade source told a leading daily.

But let us get some facts right. Madhuri Dixit was last seen romancing Anil Kapoor in Pukar (2000) but was last seen together in 2001 Rajkumar Santoshi-directed social drama Lajja and has done almost a dozen films with him such as Hifazat, Ram Lakhan, Khel, Tezaab, Beta and Jamai Raja. She will also reunite with filmmaker Indra Kumar after 22 years. They last worked in Raja (1995).

Meanwhile, Total Dhamaal is the third part of the popular franchise Dhamaal and will also feature Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi and Riteish Deshmukh.
