    Riteish - "I am glad masses are loving 'Double Dhamaal'"

    [Interview by Joginder Tuteja]
    Monday, June 27, 2011
    In the times when some of the most talked about films struggled to find much attention coming their way, ''Double Dhamaal'' is now in a comfortable situation. The film has not just opened very well and is now boasting of first day''s collections that are next only to ''Ready'', it is also finding patronage amongst the masses. No wonder, Riteish Deshmukh is ecstatic with the film''s success. Talking from Toronto where he is hosting IIFA awards, Riteish shares his excitement over the film...

    After 'Housefull', this is yet another biggie for you that has opened so well. Happy with the way things are going?

    Of course, the response has been very positive and I can see that first hand with people posting heartening things about the film on Twitter. Thankfully we have started on a positive note. Now we have to see how far do we go from here.

    I guess it's the promo that did the trick which managed to make an instant impression.

    The way promo was cut, it led the industry as well as trade to sound quite positive as well. I am glad that this happened; after all the first impression is the last impression. We worked hard on the promo. So many times it has been seen that when the First Look doesn't work, it becomes very difficult to revive the film.

    'Dhamaal' had created a record for itself as it was the first ever film in decades to have boasted of an all men cast. Despite you, Arshad, Javed and Ashish in principal roles, there was no place for women in the film. Now in the sequel, Sanjay Dutt

    See, Sanjay is rich in the film and is enjoying all the luxuries of life. So while he has Mallika as his girlfriend, Kangna has stepped in his sister. But still, eventually it all about their trio versus our quartet that takes each other heads on in this sequel.

    Yet again you go home without a leading lady despite Mallika and Kangna in 'Double Dhamaal'. Missing out on all the 'dhamaal'?

    So what if none of us has any romantic angle with any of these two hot and great looking females; after all us boys are together. We are happy to be in love with each other (laughs). Even in F.A.L.T.U. Arshad and I were shown as thick friends and didn't have any leading lady opposite them. We are used to managing our lives without women.

    With such huge cast and canvas, it is obvious that 'Double Dhamaal' was always meant to be a much bigger affair.

    Whether in terms of scale, sets, music, jokes or the overall glamour quotient, everything has been worked upon all over again. We aren't merely relying upon the fact that we have a successful franchise in hand. Also, with Kangna and Mallika joining us, the glamour quotient has been taken care of as well. We all are quite glad that the film has turned out to be so well and is now being loved by the masses.
