A source close to the film said: "Unlike Amol's previous film 'Stanley Ka Dabba', his 'Hawaa Hawaai' will be a commercial and entertaining film. The shooting has begun and it will be widely shot in various parts of Mumbai."
Partho debuted with "Stanley Ka Dabba" and won the National Film Award for Best Child Artist.
"Mere Dad Ki Maruti" fame Saqib will be seen in a "prominent role" in the movie.
"Many seniors were considered for the role, but Amol believed that Saqib has the potential to pull off the role. Amol wanted a young guy with a lot of freshness," said the source.
"Hawaa Hawaai" is likely to come out April 18, next year.
