Arshad, who will next be seen in The Legend of Michael Mishra, lashed out on social media for being misquoted and clarified that he did not confirm anybody’s name for Golmaal 4.
“I did not confirm any leading lady for Golmaal 4. Media gave me Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone’s name and I said could be. WTF,” Arshad, who has been a part of the franchise since first film Golmaal: Fun Unlimited, posted on Twitter on Friday.
Directed by Manish Jha, The Legend of Michael Mishra is slated to release on August 5.
Reportedly, the fourth instalment of the highly successful comedy franchise Golmaal will release during Diwali next year. Titled Golmaal Again, the film will see Ajay Devgn reunite with director Rohit Shetty to take forward the franchise after three previous blockbusters, a statement from the makers said.
The announcement was made to celebrate 10 years of Golmaal, the first part, which released on this date in 2006. Apart from the Drishyam star, the film featured Arshad Warsi, Sharman Joshi, Tusshar Kapoor, Paresh Rawal and Rimi Sen in lead roles.
The film spawned two sequels– Golmaal Returns in 2008 and Golmaal 3 in 2010– both of which were also released during Diwali. Golmaal Again will mark the reunion of Shetty and the 47-year-old actor after hit films like “Bol Bachchan” and the Singham franchise. Devgan, meanwhile, will be next seen in his directorial venture Shivaay.
