"The only thing which is common is the filmmaker and the three actors. The rest of the story, setting and even the wives are different. It is a franchise and not a sequel. It's funnier, crazier wilder... it's a bundle of entertainment," Aftab told IANS.
Indra Kumar, who directed the 2004 "Masti", has helmed "Grand Masti" too and teamed up with Vivek Oberoi, Aftab and Riteish Deshmukh, who were there in the original.
While Amrita Rao, Tara Sharma and Genelia D'Souza played the female leads in the original, Maryam Zakaria, Kainaat Arora, Bruna Abdullah, Manjari Phadnis, Karishma Tanna and Sonali Kulkarni will feature in "Grand Masti".
Talking about the status of the film, Aftab said: "The shooting should finish soon. It is almost over. We will be shooting 15-20 days in April."
"It's different. It may not appeal to some people's sensibilities but the masses will enjoy it. It is comedy of errors, which is something people always enjoy watching," added the 34-year-old who was last seen in "1920: Evil Returns".
