Bhaiyyaji Superhitt is an upcoming action comedy Bollywood film directed by Neerraj Pathak and produced by Chirag Dhariwal. The film features an ensemble cast including Sunny Deol, Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel, Arshad Warsi, Evelyn Sharma, Mithun Chakraborty, Prakash Raj and Shreyas Talpade.[1]


Deol plays a gangster who wants to become a film actor. And Patel plays the role of his wife. In this movie Deol plays a double role.



Initial cast announced in 2011 included Sunny Deol, Ameesha Patel, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor and Prakash Raj. Release was scheduled for 2012.[2] First look poster was released in March 2012. It was inspired by a Johnny Depp photoshoot. An initial poster featuring Deol in kurta, jeans and jacket was prepared but the director wanted to give a "royal" look to Deol's character and replaced the poster.[3] In May 2012, Hindi film website Bollywood Hungama reported that the director had approached Subhash Ghai after producer Fauzia refused to increase the film's budget by 6 crore (US$940,000).[4] Claims regarding the film being shelved were rejected by the film's cast and director.[5] Ghai also denied that he was producing the film.[6] In July of the same year, Kapoor left the project due to schedule conflicts with Shootout at Wadala and Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum. Also Zinta was removed from the cast due to unavailability of dates on her side.[7] Shreyas Talpade replaced Kapoor.[8]

In April 2013, Zinta confirmed her participation in the production.[9] She plays's the don's wife.[10] A 45–days long shooting schedule, beginning in September 2013, was conducted in Udaipur, Rajasthan.[11] Reportedly, in November 2013, there was a dispute between producer Mahendra Dhariwal and Deol. The latter wanted his remuneration before dubbing. Deol gave him the option that they could release the film under the banner of his production company Vijeta Films. Dharival consulted action director Tinu Verma, who advised that Deol should be paid and the project should be completed.[12] However, shooting of a few of Zinta's scenes was delayed due to her involvement with the Indian Premier League.[13] Kharaj Mukherjee will play the role of a police inspector. The director narrated the story to him over phone and he quickly agreed to join the project.[14] Evelyn Sharma learnt Hindi by taking lessons for 2 hours a day. She also requested her friends to use only Hindi while conversing with her.[15] Deol will play a double role. The project was stalled for 4 years before June 2015, when it was reported that filming would resume in July 2015.[16]
