However, the mixed reviews will also give the tough race to the film to get over from the craze set by Zoya Akhtar directorial Gully Boy starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. Let us tell you that the first part of the franchise Dhamaal was starring Sanjay Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffery, Ashish Chowdhary in the leading roles.
However, its sequel Double Dhamaal had Sanjay Dutt, Mallika Sherawat, Kangana Ranaut and the old leading cast of the franchise. While this time the makers have retained only a few people from the original cast and they have brought Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit, and Anil Kapoor in the leading roles.
