Actor Riteish Deshmukh is not too pleased with the makers of Mastizaade. The actor took to Twitter to express his disappointment over the fact that his name was being used to promote the film, despite the fact that he has only been featured in two scenes.
Riteish alleged that the makers of Mastizaade have breached the contract he had signed. This is what he has tweeted:
"I am part of 2 scenes and a song in Mastizaade -nothing more. I am requesting the makers again- Please honour our agreement. #Disappointed" [sic]
"Disappointed with Mastizaade :Its shocking to see them blatantly use me in their promotions-Absolute breach of my contract-agreement &trust" [sic]
The actor has been a part of a number of sex comedies in the past - including the Masti franchise. However, during an interview in 2014, Riteish had admitted that he would rather not work in this genre in the future.

"I enjoyed doing Grand Masti and before its release I said that I don't think I can offer anything more as an actor in this genre. It was a bold film and I am glad the film worked and crossed the Rs 100 crore mark. Now I don't have any such script, but if I get a similar script, I will not do it. We had crossed all the boundaries with Grand Masti," he said.
In Mastizaade, Riteish will be seen essaying the character of a Love Guru. Watch the trailer here:
The film is slated for release on 29 January, 2016.
