Director Rohit Shetty waits with bated breath for the response to Golmaal Returns. "It's bigger, it's better, it's much more entertaining than Golmaal," he says of his new film.
Not many are aware, the sequel to Golmaal happened by chance. "I was working on an altogether different story; it was meant to take off from where the first part ended. But I realized that it was getting boring. I wasn't enjoying writing it. Around that time Yunus Sajawal bounced off an entirely new story of four guys and four girls. When I read the script, I realized that it could easily pass off as the sequel to Golmaal. And when I narrated the plotline to Rajbhai Mehta (of Ashtavinayak) and also Ajay Devgan, they jumped at it. That gave me the impetus to go ahead with the sequel," Rohit recalls.
Rohit is confident that he'll continue with the Golmaal series. But before making the next instalment of this laughathon, Rohit is working on an altogether different project -- this time with Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi. "I haven't signed either Baba (Sanju) or Arshad. Nor have I made them listen to the script. It was a casual conversation with Sanju and the next thing you know, the media has already made the announcement. There's nothing official about this project yet," he clarifies.
