The first shot requires Ajay Devgn to make his entry.

The junior dancers do their rehearsals while someone stands in for Devgn.

Rohit is busy guiding the dancers, but it is choreographer Ganesh Acharya at the helm of everything.

He dances, blows confetti around and checks its flow.

Later, in the scene, we see Devgn blows confetti.

Ganesh wants to keep the song "bigger and better" since it is the fourth installment of the hit Golmaal series.

"We have 300, 400 dancers," he tells us.

The film will, in fact, start with the carnival song.

"Ajay Devgn is very comfortable while dancing," Ganesh says of Devgn who has a reputation for being a non-dancer.

"I learnt dance from Kamal master," Ganesh says. "He taught me that I must set my dance according to the dancer's capability. What will look good on them because they would be on the big screen."

"So it's my duty to make their dance look beautiful," he adds.

Shreyas Talpade, who has been a part of the second and third Golmaal films, is the first to meet the media.

"All the dance steps in the Golmaal title tracks are Western, but this time, it will be more desi," Shreyas shares with us.

Golmaal 3 appeared on screens seven years ago, in 2010, and Shreyas says the actors' camaraderie is even better this time.

"There is more masti. We shouldn't stop making Golmaal movies, they are really good," he says.

"Shooting the Golmaal songs are the happiest phase of the shoot because everyone is together and there is lot of fun!" exclaims Tusshar Kapoor who has been a part of alll the films in the series.

I'm not a fan of media junkets.

They can be very hectic or simply, a waste a time.

But the junket to Hyderabad for Rohit Shetty's Golmaal Returns was the best I've been to in my 10+ years as a movie journalist.

The trip began with me reaching Mumbai airport very early. When one lives in distant Belapur in Navi Mumbai, you need to leave your home even before the other journalists have woken up.

In Hyderabad, as he drove the media party to the Ramoji Film City, Ramesh pointed out to a temple on a hill where he said Chennai Express was shot.

Then he directs our attention to a location where Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika is being shot.

He drives by the place where 'Baahubali' Prabhas is shooting for Saaho.

After we freshen up, we are invited to the Golmaal Again sets.

A song is being shot.

Like as it happens in Rohit Shetty's films, the song is very colourful.

It is set in the Goa carnival. Men and women wear loud costumes and make-up.

Some men are beating drums. Everybody is dancing.

The stars are missing. We are told they are on their lunch break.

We are served lunch as well -- there is chicken pulao, chicken sukka, rajma, dal and steamed rice on the menu.

Post lunch, the shoot resumes.
