Riteish-Genelia together again in ‘Masti’ sequel
They have agreed to reprise their roles in part II of their 2004 hit
With Double Dhamaal becoming a bigger hit than Dhamaal, director Indra Kumar has decided to brush the dust off another one of his hits and make a sequel. And the lucky one is… no, not Mann. We said ‘hit’ remember? Well, it’s Masti! And the buzz is that the cast will remain the same. So Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Riteish Deshmukh will reprise their roles, with Amrita Rao and Genelia D’souza. And possibly Tara Sharma, though we wonder if she will agree to do it. Much has changed in the seven years since the film released and Tara is now a proud mommy. But what’s got us really interested is that Riteish and Genelia will be seen in the same film once again. The two had debuted together in Tujhe Meri Kasam and since then, rumours about their relationship have been doing the rounds. Masti had been the duo’s last film together and there was speculation that maybe the two had broken up. Of course, both Riteish and Genelia are yet to actually admit that they are in a relationship in the first place, even though rumour mills are abuzz with news of their engagement and impending marriage. But now that the two have agreed to do Masti 2 (as we call it), maybe the announcement will come soon, too. Till then, we will be happy to see them together onscreen.
