Masti sequel to release in summer next year

MUMBAI: Eight years after Vivek Oberoi, Riteish Desmukh and Aftab Shivdasani went chasing Lara Dutta in the pursuit of extra-marital fun in Ashok Thakeria‘s Masti, the makers are back with a sequel Grand Masti (GM) produced by Maruti International.

However, the sequel will have the three leading men having girlfriends of their own.

When asked about the eight-year gap, director Indra Kumar says, "We have filmmakers making sequels after 20 years. Considering that, we‘re coming out with our sequel at the right time." Calling the 2004 hit Bollywood‘s Hangover, the filmmaker adds, "While Masti has nothing to do with that Hollywood film, it surprised, shocked and entertained the audience."

Producer Ashok Thakeria also feels the same. "Masti was the first film where the lead characters boldly sought extra-marital fun. In GM, the story gets bolder," he says. Not surprisingly, the sequel has a lot more double entendres. "It‘s an adult comedy no doubt, but it‘s going to be more entertaining than the first," says Kumar.

It is said that the producer-director, who churned out hits like Dhamaal and its sequel Double Dhamaal discarded a few drafts before zeroing in on the final one.

"We didn‘t want to make a sequel just for the sake of it. The idea is to come out with something that‘s better than the first, " says Indra Kumar.

Having already shot for 15 days, the filmmakers plan to wrap up the schedule by November and release the film in the summer of next year.
