I am not embarrassed of any of my work: Riteish
Mumbai, June 17 (IANS) Actor Riteish Deshmukh says that he doesn’t look down on any genre in relation to his sex comedy “Great Grand Masti” and also said that he is not embarrassed of any of his work.
Riteish had made his Marathi film debut with Nishikant Kamat’s “Lai Bhaari”. At the trailer launch of “Great Grand Masti”, when asked if his Marathi film audiences would be disappointed about him doing a sex comedy, Riteish said, “I don’t think so, because that (‘Lai Bhaari’) released the next year after ‘Grand Masti’. I feel that as an actor I get the opportunity to do various kinds of genres, adult and naughty comedy being one of them.”
“I don’t look down on any genre for that matter and I am happy that ‘Grand Masti’ was a successful film and that’s the reason we’re coming back with ‘Great Grand Masti’. I am happy that ‘Lai Bhaari’ was successful. I got the chance to do ‘Ek Villain’, which was completely different and that also did well. I am okay, I guess audiences have been very kind towards me and I thank them all.”
Riteish had claimed that he won’t do sex comedies, apparently after the birth of his first son. When asked about what prompted him to go back to it, Ritesh said, “Induji. I think my love for Indra Kumar is much more than my promises in life.”
Director of the film Indra Kumar thanked Riteish saying, “Riteish had sworn that ‘I would not do a sex comedy.’ But looking at my innocent face he agreed.”
Riteish recently became a father for the second time. Did he think about the fact that his son would watch his sex comedies when he grows up? “When I do films I do it because it’s important for me how I feel about the films. I am an actor and I am making movies so Riaan can watch some two years from now and some after 18 years.”
“Let him watch them. If he likes them fine and if he doesn’t like them that’s also fine. I am thinking that every person will be an individual to decide for themselves. I am not embarrassed about any of my work.”
“Great Grand Masti” also stars Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Urvashi Rautela.
