‘If you ask Genelia, she will say no one can play a villain better than me’, says Riteish Deshmukh

Bollywood star Riteish Deshmukh has garnered a huge fan base as many cine-goers loved his comic timing in the franchises of Masti, Housefull, Kya Kool Hai Hum and Dhamaal. But the actor surprised us with his impeccable performance in Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain, where he played an out-and-out negative character. The actor has now a bunch of releases coming up like Housefull 4, Marjaavaan, Baaghi 3. While once again, we are waiting for him to tickle us with the reincarnation comedy, with Marjaavaan he has again donned a wicked villainous avatar and by looking at his portrayal in the promos, we can bet that he will win our hearts again.

Talking about his look of a dwarf in Marjaavaan, Riteish Deshmukh told Mumbai Mirror, “One day, Milap just said that he wanted to make this film. I’d grown my beard and hair for another film and we worked around the look, adding a tika, a gold watch and loose pants with oversized shirts. If you ask Genelia (Deshmukh, actress-wife), she will say no one can play a villain better than me, though she has her own reasons to say that.”

Riteish also spoke about his camaraderie with Akshay Kumar and said, “When we’re sitting together, we understand the space we are in. Sometimes, when there are people around and we need to say something that should stay between us, we communicate by simply looking at each other. Akshay is a friend and brother who’ll always be there for me and vice versa.” Talking about Housefull 4, which is set to hit the screens this Friday also stars Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde in key roles. So, are you planning to watch the film, this weekend?
