`Grand Masti` characters to feature in a book

Mumbai: Makers of `Grand Masti`, a sequel to the 2004 hit film `Masti` have tied up with a leading publishing house to release a book based on the adult-comedy.

This is the first time that an international publishing house (Harlequin India -- makers of Mills and Boon) has licensed the character rights of a Hindi feature film.

The book `Grand Masti: The Fun Never Ends` will feature fun, rib-tickling and excitement-filled escapades of the three main characters of the film- Amar, Meet and Prem, played by Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani on screen.

"We are humbled and privileged that the international publishing house behind Mills & Boon has chosen `Grand Masti` to enter the Bollywood arena by licensing the character rights of a film for the first time. The tie-up between them and the movie is a boon to the series as well as to the readers of the book," producer Ashok Thakeria said in a statement here.

Thakeria believes that this move will help the film reach out to a wider audience.

The print book will be available across the Indian sub-continent.

The film directed by Indra Kumar will see the trio reprise their roles once again.

Besides, the film will also see six actresses -- Manjari Fadnis, Karishma Tanna, Sonalee Kulkarni, Kainaat Arora, Bruna Abdalah and Maryam Zakaria in lead roles.
