Meet Sunny Leone as Laila Lele in Mastizaade
It is the first time, Sunny Leone will be seen in a comedy film. She is Laila Lele, a Maharashtrian girl in the sex comedy while Tusshar Kapoor is Sunny Kele.
Mastizaade commenced shooting in Mumbai on September 7 in a Mumbai studio.
Talking about the film, director Milap Zaveri said that when he was celebrating the success of Grand Masti, he was approached by PNC (Pritish Nandy Communications Ltd) with the film as they were assured that ‘he is very good with the genre’, and the next thing was Zaveri’s agreement.
Speaking of casting Sunny Leone, Zaveri, who earlier directed Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai with Riteish Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandez, and has written scripts for films like Grand Masti, Housefull, etc. says, “Sunny is a big star today with both her films, Jism 2 and Ragini MMS 2 being heroine-oriented subjects and doing very well at the box-office. Tusshar is phenomenal in comedy and has been successful in the genre and casting him was a perfect idea.”

He added, “Sunny loved the script when she read it and found it really funny. No one has ever made her do comedy. It is a glamorous role yet quite hilarious,” claimed Zaveri who plans to complete one schedule by the end of September. “Most of the film will be shot abroad and we are yet to decide the location. I plan to complete the entire shoot by end of this year and will release it next year,” he mentioned.
It is confirmed that no one has opted out of the third installment of Tusshar’s sex comedy Kya Kool Hai Hum. While the original 2005 movie had Riteish Deshmukh and Tusshar in lead roles and was a major hit, its sequel also starring Deshmukh and Tusshar did average business. According to a report, in the third franchise Aftab Shivdasani has replaced Deshmukh who is busy with other projects.
The actress in an interview was quoted saying, “Pritish, Milap and I want this to be my biggest outing. I’m happy about my character, who is racy, sexy and sharp.” The three-film-old actress earlier expressed her excitement on Twitter: “God Bless my new movie! And if my parents are watching over me please bless me with this new project!”
‘Mastizaade’, produced by Pritish Nandy, also features comedian turned actor Vir Das.
Sunny made her Bollywood debut with Pooja Bhatt‘s thriller ‘Jism 2‘ and has also starred in ‘Jackpot‘ and Ekta Kapoor‘s horror flick ‘Ragini MMS 2‘, besides doing item songs in several movies.
