Milap Zaveri Set to Reunite Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani, and Riteish Deshmukh for ‘Grand Masti 4’; Official Announcement Coming Soon

Bollywood is set to bring back one of its most popular adult comedy franchises, as director Milap Zaveri prepares to reunite Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani, and Riteish Deshmukh for the fourth installment of ‘Grand Masti 4’.

The ‘Grand Masti’ series pioneered the adult comedy genre in Bollywood when the first film was released in 2004. With vulgar humor and sexual innuendos, the franchise gained popularity among young male audiences.

The unexpected success of ‘Masti’ led to two more sequels – ‘Grand Masti’ in 2013 and ‘Great Grand Masti’ in 2016. While the first was directed by Indra Kumar, he passed the baton to Milap Zaveri for the last two films.

Now, Zaveri is set to return to direct the fourth part, tentatively titled ‘Grand Masti 4’. The official announcement of Grand Masti is imminent.

Original Trio Reuniting

Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani, and Riteish Deshmukh will reprise their roles in ‘Grand Masti 4’, having starred in all previous installments. Their characters form the crux of the franchise with their naughty camaraderie and sexual misadventures.

Sources reveal that the actors are excited to come together after 7 years for this new outing of Grand Masti 4. Their on-screen chemistry has been vital to the appeal of the ‘Grand Masti’ films.

Fans will be eager to see the trio reunite in their iconic roles that have delivered blockbuster comedy in the past installments of Grand Masti.

Hunt for Leading Ladies Underway

While the male leads are set, the makers of Grand Masti 4 are currently on the lookout for actresses to romance Oberoi, Shivdasani, and Deshmukh in ‘Grand Masti 4’.

Previous films featured ensemble female casts with multiple heroines. Stars like Lara Dutta, Genelia D’Souza, Bruna Abdullah, Urvashi Rautela, and others have been part of the franchise over the years.

Reports suggest Zaveri and producers are meeting potential leading ladies for Grand Masti 4. An official announcement about the cast will likely come after the female stars are finalized.

Filming Likely in Early 2024

With the script locked and the male cast in place, ‘Grand Masti 4’ is expected to go on floors in the first half of 2024. The plan is to time the shooting schedule with the 20th anniversary of the first film.

Sources say the makers want to commemorate two decades of the hit franchise by commencing production of Grand Masti around the April 2004 release date of the original.

An official launch announcement of Grand Masti 4 is also likely to coincide with the anniversary celebrations. Fans can expect ‘Grand Masti 4’ to hit theaters in 2024 itself.

Can Zaveri Recreate Magic?

Milap Zaveri took over directing duties from Indra Kumar after ‘Masti’. While the franchise has delivered hits, Kumar’s absence raises questions.

He spearheaded the franchise’s success – can Zaveri match that magic with Grand Masti?

The director does have experience directing the last two films of Grand Masti. But Kumar’s comedy sensibilities were crucial. It remains to be seen if Zaveri can recreate the winning formula that made Grand Masti a hit.

Adult Comedy Space Heating Up

When ‘Masti’ was first released, the adult comedy genre was relatively untouched. But in recent years, films like ‘Kya Kool Hai Hum’ have explored similar themes.

So ‘Grand Masti 4’ will face stiff competition in the adult comedy space. But the franchise’s popularity, and reunion of the original trio, could give it an edge.

Marketing Will Be Crucial

The makers of Grand Masti will need smart marketing to bring back audiences. While the franchise has a fanbase, the landscape has changed.

Leveraging nostalgia and selling the trio’s reunion will be key. At the same time, a fresh appeal needs to be generated for younger viewers.

If promoted well, the curiosity around Grand Masti 4 could result in a big opening when it is released.

Final Thought

‘Grand Masti 4’ marks a nostalgic reunion of Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani, and Riteish Deshmukh in a genre they pioneered. With Bollywood lacking hit franchises, the film could recreate old magic.

But Zaveri has big shoes to fill taking over from Indra Kumar. It remains to be seen if Grand Masti 4 matches previous installments’ success when it likely releases in 2024.
