New Delhi: Success has kissed the feet of actor Riteish Deshmukh, who has already stunned Bollywood with his surprising performance as an antagonist in `Ek Villain`, a refreshing change from the comic roles he was attached with.

Now, the actor has taken the Marathi film industry by storm with his debut `Lai Bhaari` which earned a whopping 10.55 crore over the weekend.

Even as the 35 year-old actor is yet to complete celebrating the grand success of `Ek Villain` (which has entered the 100 crore club), his Marathi flick has given him more reasons to continue making merry.

Meanwhile the posters of his next `Bangistan` has been released and has already become the talk of the town.

It seems he has become the favourite among the directors. His immense popularity among the fans has earned him as leading face of YRF`s `Bank Chor` replacing comedy king Kapil Sharma.

Whew! Riteish has a lot more on his plate than he can chew. But may more success come his way.
