Sharman Joshi, Jimmy Shergill, Aftab Shivdasani, Pooja Chopra, Nazia Hussian and Sana Khan – the ensemble cast who were busy shooting for ‘Tom Dick Harry Returns’ have completed the shoot schedule for the same.

Also, present at the wrap up party were the producers Surendra Bhatia and Narsingh Rajput and the editor of the film Ballu Saluja.


Nine years later, the filmmaker is returning with Tom, Dick And Harry  Returns, the second edition of this laugh riot. Once again, the premise is similar. It is based on a comedy of errors revolving around three men — one blind, one deaf and one mute. Quite obviously, the plot line this time around will be new. Even the main star cast sees some changes. While Jimmy Sheirgill (Harry) is being retained, we have Sharman Joshi, the actor with a perfect comic timing and Aftab Shivdasani, another favourite in comedies, playing the lead characters. Hotties Pooja Chopra (Miss India World, 2009), Nazia Hussain and Sana Khan play their love interests.

Padma Shri Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan croons for 31st October after 24 years!


It was writer-producer Harry Sachdeva’s sheer determination to convince Padma Shri Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan to sing a song for his upcoming edge-of-the-seat thriller, 31st October featuring Soha Ali Khan and Vir Das.

Not many are aware that the veteran classical musician has been associated with Hindi film industry and as a teacher he has trained several noted playback and classical singers in his prolific journey as an exemplary artist including Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Hariharan, Sonu Nigam, Shaan, Alisha Chinoy and A R Rahman among several others.

The Padma Shri recipient bowed out of Bollywood in 1993, his last track being ‘Is Se Jyada Dukh Na Koi’ from Shreemaan Aashique. Twenty- three years later, Ustad is set for a comeback.

Since the subject of 31st October has never been attempted before in Bollywood and when the makers decided to narrate the story of what transpired after Indira Gandhi’s assassination on the big screen, they were sure that they would want to associate special personalities to it.

Ustad Ghulam Khan says, “The song is dedicated to God and humanity. I was so touched by the film’s subject that I decided to sing the track. It’s my tribute to those who lost their lives in 1984.”

Harry informs, “When we shared the subject of 31st October with Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan, he felt for the sensitivity of the subject and as a tribute to many who lost their lives in 1984, and also agreed to sing a song for the film.”

“It was a proud moment for us that such a living legend was convinced to sing the Sufi song Maula for a Bollywood film after 24 years,” the writer-producer adds.

Produced by Magical Dreams Productions Pvt Ltd, Panorama Studios and Harry Sachdeva and directed by Shivaji Lotan Patil, 31st October starring Soha Ali Khan and Vir Das is scheduled to release on 7th October, 2016.
