'Riteish Deshmukh not 'embarrassed' about any of his films'

June 17, 2016 13:53 IST

Riteish DeshmukhRiteish Deshmukh may have featured in many adult comedies, but the actor is not embarrassed about his work.

The 37-year-old actor has acted in adult comedies like Kya Kool Hai Hum, Kya Super Kool Hai Hum and his latest, Great Grand Masti.

When asked how his son, who is one-and-a-half years old, will react to his movies when he grows up, Riteish said, "When I do films, I do it because it is important how I feel about (these) films. I am sure there are some (of Riteish's) movies which he can watch two years from now and some after 18 years.

"If he likes them, fine. If he doesn't, that's also fine. I am not embarrassed about any of my work," said the Housefull 3 actor.

Riteish was talking to reporters at the trailer launch of Great Grand Masti last night.

The 37-year-old said he has worked in diverse movies, like the raunchy comedy Grand Masti, the Marathi action film Lai Bhaari and the thriller, Ek Villain.

On being quizzed if his adult comedies might make the actor's Marathi audience unhappy, Riteish said the viewers have been kind to him so far.

"As an actor, I get an opportunity to do various films, adult and naughty comedy being one of them. I don't look down upon any genre. I am happy that Grand Masti was a successful film; that's the reason we are coming back with this. I am happy that Lai Bhaari was successful too. The audience has been very kind to me," he said.

Great Grand Masti is the third installment in the Masti franchise. The film also stars franchise regulars Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani.

The actor says there could come a time when he felt saturated doing adult comedies.

"Of course there can be (a saturation point). The idea is, everyone does realise while doing a film that there could be a saturation point but when you have something new to offer, there is new humour."

The Indra Kumar-directed film, also starring Urvashi Rautela, is set to release on July 22.
