Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit-Nene are working with director Indra Kumar after 26 long years in the upcoming comedy, Total Dhamaal. The trio had last collaborated in 1992's hit, Beta.
In the third instalment of the Dhamaal series, Kapoor and Dixit-Nene will be seen playing a married couple.
The trio began their 15-day Mumbai schedule today by shooting the title track.
Speaking about the reunion and the characters of the two actors, Kumar said, “All three of us are shooting together 26 years after Beta and I'm excited about reuniting with my blockbuster jodi. They play husband and wife in the film and have been prepping for a while, but I can’t reveal any details except that Anil goes by the name of Avinash and all of us call him Avi."

Kapoor and Dixit-Nene have also expressed their joy about the reunion.
“How I love the first day of shoot! #TotalDhamaal begins today! @MadhuriDixit, @Indra_kumar_9 & I are working together after 26 years but the energy and vibe is the same as it was during #Beta! It’s going to be an epic ride! Let’s get the camera rolling! @foxstarhindi @ADFfilms,” said Kapoor on Twitter.

Dixit-Nene also took to her Twitter account to say that the sets were a laugh riot. "Can’t stop laughing while working with these 2 crazies even after so many years... it’s #TotalDhamaal."
Beta became a runaway hit when it released in 1992. The song ‘Dhak Dhak Karne Laga’ is considered a major contributor to its success. Recalling how the song was added at the last minute, Kumar said, “I remember a week before the film’s release, we picturised "Dhak Dhak". We’d already received the censor certificate by then so we had to add another supplement to the certificate for the song which was incorporated later. It was a last-minute addition and created history. We were all blown away when we saw it for the first time."
Total Dhamaal also stars Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Jaaved Jaaferi, Riteish Deshmukh, Niharica Raizada and Sanjai Mishra.
