Rohit Shetty and actor Ajay Devgn will be coming together for the fifth installment of the superhit Golmaal franchise.
Ajay Devgn confirmed his return for the fifth part, which has been titled Golmaal FIVE.
“Rohit and I have discussed and are committed to doing our next installment of ‘Golmaal’. The franchise is not only the longest-running one in Hindi cinema, but it also happens to be one of my favourites because like we said in one of our earliest films in this series, it’s fun unlimited,” Ajay told news agency IANS.
The 50-year-old also shared the announcement on his official Instagram handle and wrote, “A film franchise which is not only the longest running one in hindi cinema but also happens to be one of my favourites! Prepare yourself for yet another laugh riot with #GolmaalFive.”
Along with the post, Ajay shared a picture of himself with the action-director Rohit Shetty.
Rohit will be busy producing films after completing Sooryavanshi; a project with Farah Khan and also with his assistant directors who are ready to be launched as directors under his own production house.
The script of Golmaal FIVE has been finalized and Rohit will start shooting for it after he completes his production ventures.
Rohit came out with Golmaal: Fun Unlimited, starring Ajay, Arshad Warsi, Sharman Joshi, Tusshar Kapoor and Paresh Rawal in 2006. It revolved around the lives of a group of friends as they navigate through youth.
The franchise further expanded to include Golmaal Returns, Golmaal 3 and Golmaal Again.
Actors like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Amrita Arora, Kunal Kemmu, Shreyas Talpade, Tabu and Parineeti Chopra have also worked in the various Golmaal films.
Produced by Rohit Shetty Picturez in association with Reliance Entertainment, Golmaal FIVE will be directed by Rohit.
Rohit and Ajay have collaborated on 10 films in the past and are excited about getting together with Golmaal FIVE.
At the moment, Rohit is busy shooting for his cop universe film Sooryavanshi, which stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
