Vivek Oberoi, Riteish Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani starrer Masti released in 2004. After nine years the makers came up with the sequel to the film titled Grand Masti (2013) and in 2016 released the third instalment of the franchise titled Great Grand Masti. Now everyone is waiting to know if the fourth instalment of the series is on the cards.
We recently met Aftab Shivdasani and asked him if Masti 4 is happening, to which the actor said, “I am just the last person you should be asking. I think Indu ji (Indra Kumar) and Ashok ji would be the right people to ask this question. The franchise is extremely close to all of us, but obviously seeing the changing times and changing audiences, if you do another film in that franchise, you would want to take it a couple of notches ahead in terms of content and really make a mark with that film. It’s a very entertaining franchise, it’s just the question of how the filmmakers see it and if they would want to make another film in that franchise. So, it’s totally up to them.”
When asked him about Tom Dick & Harry 2, the actor revealed that the film has been shelved. He said, “That film has been shelved as far as I know. I don’t know what went wrong, we shot about 15 days for that film and then there’s no news about it.” Talking about his future projects, Aftab said, “There are a couple of scripts that I have liked. I am just in the process of finalising a few things. I would love to talk about it, but only when I have signed and everything is finalised.”
Meanwhile, Aftab is all set to make his debut in Kannada film industry with the film Kotigobba 3 which stars Kichcha Sudeepa in the lead role.
