Riteish Deshmukh, who is gearing up for the release of Housefull 2, has said that he is not too happy doing sequels one after the other. In fact, other than the Sajid Khan directorial movie, the actor will be seen in four sequels like Ekta Kapoor's sex comedy, Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum and Indra Kumar's two comedies Masti 2 and Total Dhamaal in the months to come.
"I am fed up of the fact that every film that works has a sequel in the offing. Like they asked me Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya is a success so lets do a sequel to it. When you do sequels, you are almost repeating the same genre, characters, same style of filmmaking...all this happens in slightly bigger but in the same space," Riteish told PTI in an interview.
"So every year if I do sequels then there is nothing new that I am doing. As an actor, I would love to do something else also. I had signed three sequels last year - Dhamaal, Housefull, Kya Kool Hai Hum. But this time I have signed only one sequel, Masti and one thriller and some other films," he said. Sajid Khan directed Housefull 2 is the next installment of 2010 hit comedy Housefull and is slated for release on April 5.
The ensemble star cast comprises Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Asin, Zarine Khan, Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty and Boman Irani. In the sequel to 2005 hit, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, Riteish and Tusshar Kapoor would reprise their roles from the previous film in the second installment. Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum is an upcoming sex comedy film directed by Sachin Yardi and produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor, scheduled for August release. (PTI)
