Recently evening we saw the trailer launch of the third portion in the Masti series titled Great Grand Masti. While the trailer did perk up out interest in the film, what caught our attention was the fact that neither Ekta Kapoor nor her mother Shobha Kapoor has been credited as producers of the film. Rather Sameer Nair and Aman Gill who work in Balaji have assumed their place as producers.
Discussing the explanation for both Ekta and Shobha Kapoor’s names being lost from the credits, a source near the production house says, “This phase of Ekta and Shobha Kapoor not taking credit started from the days of Kya Kool Hain Hum. In fact Shobha was not comfortable with her name being featured as a producer especially on sex comedies and hence decided to not feature in the credits. Simultaneously, Ekta being who she is (read: as superstitions as she is) didn’t want her to be there without her mother’s name in the credits and hence decided to forgo the same. But since it is an Alt Entertainment film, Sameer and Aman have been credited as producers.”
With respect to the film itself, Great Grand Masti that is co-created by Maruti International, ALT Entertainment and Shri Adhikari Bros , highlights Vivek Oberoi, Riteish Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani in lead parts nearby Sonal Chauhan, Sana Khan, Mishti and Ankita Shorey. Coordinated by Indra Kumar, the film is slated to hit the theatres in July 2016. .- CINEWS
