MUMBAI: Has Riteish Deshmukh’s ‘no sex-comedy’ stand forced makers of ‘Mastizaade’ to modify script?
A mixed bag notwithstanding, being typecast remains an occupational hazard in Bollywood. With several sex comedies in his kitty, Riteish Deshmukh is more or less perceived to be part of the adult humour club. However, his resolve to stay away from this genre is believed to have led to some changes in Milap Zaveri’s next film, ‘Mastizaade’.
Sources say that Riteish’s brief role in the film has been reworked to keep it free from sexual innuendoes and double entendres. An insider says, “He is doing a cameo in Milap’s film and since they are friends, the latter is aware that Riteish is no more keen on doing sex comedies. So, Milap rewrote the dialogues for Riteish.”
It is said that Riteish is not charging any money for the role and that he has signed the contract for just 1 rupee. ‘Mastizaade’ stars Sunny Leone in a double role, Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das.
Riteish and Milap remained unavailable for comment.
