With the completion of a decade, Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh seems to be exploring newer pastures! All these years Riteish tickled our funny bones with his entertaining performances. However, one is anticipating films like EK VILLAIN and LAI BHAARI, an upcoming Marathi movie, which are serious in nature, as the turning point in his career!

“I don’t know about the turning point and am also not looking it that way. I just do things as they fall in place. I think there are choices and it’s a coincidence that they are coming together. LAI BHAARI was supposed to release in January but it’s coming up now. EK VILLAIN was supposed to release before HUMSHAKALS but it released now. HUMSHAKALS was supposed to be last…but that’s something not in my hand. Everything has its own destiny,” says the actor

Ask Riteish what was his idea behind doing an action extravaganza like LAI BHAARI in Marathi cinema and he says, “It’s not a new genre in India but it’s something which I haven’t seen in Marathi cinema happening for a long time. And that’s what I attempted when the script came to me, to do something like action revenge drama in Marathi cinema,” he adds, “Further I wanted to work with Nishikant Kamat for a very long time. We even discussed few scripts earlier and I am glad that it happened finally.”

Doing films like BALAK PALAK, YELLOW and LAI BHAARI is his way to contribute to the Marathi film industry and Marathi mansa? Riteish gets modest, “Who am I to contribute to any industry? I am too small and nobody to bring up the Marathi film industry. I can only attempt to make small films like BALAK PALAK, LAI BHAARI, YELLOW because eventually when all of us make good cinema the industry notices it. It’s a collective effort. People like Girish Kulkarni, Ravi Jadhav, Mahesh Manjrekar and many others are collectively making good films.”

On a parting note ask Riteish, if he is planning to quit comedies from here on and he clears, “I love comedies and I’ll keep doing it. I never said that I will not do comedies ever. I would love to do comedies which has something new to offer.”
