Money Hai Toh Honey Hai Preview

A dying old man hands over his business empire to six strangers in the comedy film 'Money Hai Toh Honey Hai'.

The movie stars a host of actors including Govinda, Celina Jaitley, Aftab Shivdasani, Hansika Motwani, Upen Patel, Manoj Bajpai, Ravi Kishan and Prem Chopra.

Character Sketches:

Govinda as Bobby

Govinda plays Bobby, a smooth-talking, fast-spending, good-for-nothing, utterly spoilt brat in the body of a man. The only son of his parents, he has no plan of ever working in life.

Aftab Shivdasani as Gaurav

Gaurav is straight and hardworking and works as a copywriter in an advertising company. Gaurav can speak nothing but the truth, but none of his clients want to hear it. Therefore, Gaurav mostly finds himself on a sticky wicket.

Upen Patel as Manik

Manik is a struggling model, making his ends meet by modeling for underwear and khaaj-khujli commercials. He hates what he does and dreams of big bucks.

Manoj Bajpai as Lalabhai

Lalabhai always thinks positive. He won a huge amount of money in a lottery but lost it all in various business disasters. Still, he smiles about it and says he never lost a crore but earned a crore’s worth of experience.

Hansika Motwani as Ashima

Ashima is a successful TV actress. She is loved by millions as Meera, her serial character. But she feels stifled and dreams of Bollywood – doing a film with Shahrukh Khan and also winning a Filmfare Award.

Celina Jaitley as Shruti

Shruti is an extremely talented designer struggling to find her foothold in the cut-throat world of fashion. Rather than getting into pricey haute couture, she wants to design stuff that can be worn by common man.

Ravi Kishan as Parag

He’s looked after his uncle and his business for years and believes he is the rightful heir. He’s shocked when his uncle nominates six strangers to take over the business empire. By hook or crook, he wants to win back what he’s lost.

Prem Chopra as KK Jaiswal

An eccentric but kind millionaire, Jaiswal has always believed in doing good for others. Almost on his deathbed, he decides to bequeath his entire fortune to six total strangers. Will his trust be misused?


The film is about an eventful and whirlwind journey of Bobby, a planner along with five losers – Lala Bhai, a failed businessman, Gaurav, an honest copywriter, Manik, a struggling model, Shruti, a struggling fashion designer, and Ashima, a successful TV actress.

This journey of the sextet begins after a call from a cranky old man, whom they ignore initially, but later somehow decide to give it a thought. They realize that they could be the owners of a luxury resort.

With loads of dreams in their eyes, they all reach the resort and realize that the old man had called not one but all six of them.

Will they be able to run the empire together, or fight among themselves?

Another hurdle in their way is a loyal manager who instigates them against each other, hoping to wipe them out from the scene so that he could be the new MD of this resort.

‘Money Hai Toh Honey Hai’ is directed by Ganesh Acharya, who recently made his directorial debut with Swami .

Kumar Mangat is the film’s producer while music is given by Nitin Arora and Sony Chandy.

The film is set to release on July 25.
