The film recorded a wonderful opening at Rs 16. 50 crore and showed huge growth during the weekend. Directed by Indra Kumar, the film boasts of a huge star cast which also includes Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey, Esha Gupta, Riteish Deshmukh and Boman Irani.
Recently, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, when Indra Kumar was asked about getting such a dreamy ensemble together, he had said, "It was more nostalgic as I was teaming up with Ajay, Anil and Madhuri after a long time. There was no trouble getting any of the actors on board because their tracks had them laughing out loud. It took just one narration to get the cast in place. And as a director, I’ve played to everyone’s strengths."
Total Dhamaal was initially scheduled to hit cinemas on December 2018, but the release date was shifted to 22 February.
