The producer, Ashok Thakeria, and director, Indra Kumar, who had earlier announced that Dhamaal 2 would be an all-boys affair, have gone back on their word. They have now decided to have two heroines for the movie, three months before Dhamaal 2 starts shooting.
Thakeria states that they never had a policy decision not to have girls in Dhamaal. It was just by chance that the film had no women characters. At first, they thought that the sequel too would have no women, but as the script developed, female characters came into the plot. So the movie now has two heroines.
According to sources, the female leads in the movie were added on Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi"s insistence. As of now, it looks like Sameera Reddy and Bipasha Basu will be playing the roles in question.
