The reviews of recently released Grand Masti claimed that the movie is filled with vulgarity but the lead actor Aftab Shivdasani thinks otherwise. He does not agree with reports that his film Grand Masti is facing flak for being overtly sexual and vulgar. He argues that the adult comedy is only for entertainment and should not be taken seriously.
"As far as I have heard, the audience is liking the film and no one is taking offence. It is not at all offensive. It is an entertaining film," said Aftab.
"We always said that it is a film only for entertainment, not to be taken seriously," he added.
The film which is made at Rs. 35 crore has been written by Milap Zaveri and has earned brickbats from critics for innuendos and suggestive double-meaning dialogues. However, despite criticism, Grand Masti, a sequel to the 2004-hit Masti, opened to a bumper response at the box office and generated Rs.66.48 crore within the first week of its release.
Meanwhile, Aftab, who teamed up with Vivek Oberoi and Riteish Deshmukh in the film, has a mixed feeling over the success of Grand Masti. "I am very happy because I did not expect this kind of success. But the way it has become such a big hit, even we are shocked. We did not expect so much. The film is still in theatres and I hope people go and watch it and it becomes a bigger hit," Aftab said.
