As the news started doing the rounds it was revealed that the grand entry of Diljit Dosanjh, Sonakshi Sinha, and Lara Dutta on the awards was not just candid but there were cameras recording a sequence of some film, in between the media cameras there can be seen a film shoot cam along with the celebs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqgNlAowcaM Produced by Vashu Bhagnani this flick is said to be a comedy and is also being touted as India's first stage reality movie.Apart from Diljit and Sonakshi, filmmaker Karan Johar is also roped in the movie. Though after his acting debut in 2015 with 'Bombay Velvet', that failed to impress the box office, Kjo had vowed to never return to acting but seems he had now taken a U-turn on his previous statement.
According to a report in DNA, the makers were keen to title the film as Golmaal in New York, but copyright infringement issues made them rework it. And sources told the daily that it might now be called 'Gadbad in New York'.A source also stated in the daily,
It is for the first time that Karan Johar, Diljit Dosanjh, and Sonakshi Sinha will be sharing the same screen space. Also being touted as India's first stage reality movie we just cannot control our excitement. What's your take on it? Guy's don't just keep calm b'coz its Diljit Dosanjh make a comment right now in the section below.Karan gave the makers an ultimatum. He made it clear that if they called the film Golmaal in New York, he wanted nothing to do with it. In fact, KJo said he wouldn't even come on set because he respects Rohit and didn't want to upset him at all. Of course, Bhagnani too saw reason in the whole Golmaal v/s Gadbad argument and on his own opted for Gadbad.
