The sequel of the popular sex comedy film Masti (2004) is all set to hit the theatres, and actor Aftab Shivdasani, who was in the first installment of the film insists that the franchise is a bundle of entertainment and that there is nothing common between the two.
Tickling the funny bone: Viveik Oberoi tried his hands at comedy with the film Masti and the movie gave him yet another chance to experiment with his image.
“The only thing that is
common is the filmmaker and the three actors. The rest of the story, setting and even the wives are different. It is a franchise and not a sequel. It’s funnier, crazier wilder,” said Aftab.
Indra Kumar, who directed the 2004 film, has helmed Grand Masti too and has teamed up with Vivek Oberoi, Aftab and Riteish Deshmukh, who were there in the original as well.
While Amrita Rao, Tara Sharma and Genelia D’Souza played the female leads in the original, Maryam Zakaria, Kainaat Arora, Bruna Abdullah, Manjari Phadnis, Karishma Tanna and Sonali Kulkarni will feature in Grand Masti.
Talking about the film, Aftab said, “It’s different. It may not appeal to some people’s sensibilities but the masses will enjoy it. It is a comedy of errors, which is something people always enjoy watching,” added the 34-year-old who was last seen in 1920: Evil Returns.
