Mumbai: As 'Mast' -- a film about a love story between an actress and a student -- clocked 16 years of its existence on Thursday, its actor Aftab Shivdasani walked down the memory lane and said it has been a "beautiful journey" till now.
"Today, 16 years ago, 'Mast' released...What a beautiful journey it has been! #16yearsofmast #nostalgia," Aftab, whose career gained momentum in showbiz after the film, tweeted.
After exploring the Hindi film world as a child artist in films like "Mr. India" and "ChaalBaaz", Aftab made his adult acting debut with the 1999 film opposite Urmila Matondkar.
The Ram Gopal Varma directorial presented a fresh story with some innocence at its heart. The film's music like "Ruki ruki thi zindagi" also became an instant hit.
However, despite having a successful debut, Aftab could not establish a strong ground in Bollywood with flop films like "Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega", "Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe" and "Pyaasa".
After a low phase, Aftab hit the jackpot again with sex comedies "Masti" and "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum". He is now awaiting the release of third instalment of the film -- "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3".
