Best Buds Vivek Oberoi, Aftaab Shivdasani and Riteish Deshmukh’s ‘Masti’-Khor Reunion  on ZEE TV’s Yaaron Ki Baraat on Sunday, 20th Nov at 8PM

This Sunday, 20th November at 8 PM your weekly dose of excitement, fun and rip-roaring laughter will triple as best buddies Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani join their third partner-in-crime - hostRiteish Deshmukh on his chat show Vivo Camera and Music presents Yaaron Ki Baraat co-powered by and Brooke Bond Red Label. Co-hosted by Sajid Khan, the mad trio with their energy, wit and humour will bring the house down. This action-packed and super-exciting episode will be telecast on Sunday, 20th November at 8Pm on ZEE TV. The show is about testing celebrity friendships through a series of fun games, tasks, challenges and the two actors will speak of how they hit it off, what they admire about each other and divulge secrets… all of this while pulling each other’s leg on this rocking show! 

Aftaab, Vivek and Riteish have worked in the popular Masti trilogy and even today, their unmatched chemistry, quirky sense of humor and impeccable comic timing remain their hallmark.  So it came as no surprise that Riteish who is also the host of show was pulled into every joke and prank and eventually moved to the guests’ couch while Sajid continued to host the three. Aftaab recalled that they first met at a workshop for Masti in 2003, when Vivek was an already established star and Riteish and he were relatively newcomers in the industry. He exchanged pleasantries with a rather shy Riteish who would just sit by himself  in one corner. Aftaab shares that it barely took Riteish any time to get out of his shell, though, and once he’d opened up, he has emerged to be the biggest monster and prankster around, completely contrary to what he had initially imagined him to be.  Vivek added that all three were unmarried when they met first and Aftaab was, hands down, the most flirtatious amongst the three. Gleefully admitting this to be true, Aftaab immediately ribbed Vivek on being overly sweet and oozing sugar-and-honey while talking to his female fans. Riteish who was trying to control himself and act like a decent host was  soon pulled into this ribbing. They revealed that Riteish is a fountain of all gossip and has all the updates not just about the industry but about current affairs as well. Vivek further joked ‘Rather if there was anybody besides our Prime Minister who knew about the currency ban on 500 and 1000 notes, it has to be Riteish’

Spilling more beans on the host, Aftaab and Vivek said that the only actor in Bollywood who can convincingly pull off a female character with flourish is Riteish Deshmukh and his adaas and expressions can actually give quite a few actresses a run for their money. Host Sajid then revealed that while shooting for the film Humshakals, Riteish had to impersonate a female character, for which he specially flew down a make-up and body toning expert from U.S to look perfect for his part.

Amongst all that they revealed for the first time on national television, Vivek accepted that he had dated a fan much before he got married, that he steals his children’s chocolates from the fridge and has once even urinated in the ocean. On the other hand, Aftaab accepted that he has taken some clothes that he liked from shoots, has got into a physical fight for a girl and has even been slapped by one.

From trying their hand at ghaati dancing to fulfilling their fans’ weird desire of receiving  a scrub bath from the stars, the sporty duo will be seen having a ball of a time and letting viewers in on some exciting little anecdotes from their lives.
