Won`t accept script similar to `Grand Masti`: Riteish Deshmukh
Mumbai: When it comes to genre, actor-producer Riteish Deshmukh feels that he has nothing more to offer to sex comedies post the grand success of ‘Grand Masti’, and therefore he won`t accept an offer with a similar script.
"I enjoyed doing `Grand Masti` and before its release I said that I don`t think I can offer anything more as an actor in this genre. It was a bold film and I am glad the film worked and crossed Rs.100 crore mark," said Riteish in a group interview.
"Now I don`t have any such script, but if I get a similar script, I will not do it. We have crossed all the boundaries with the film," he added.
Right now Riteish has two releases within a week - comedy drama ‘Humshakals’ and thriller ‘Ek Villain’.
‘Humshakals’, directed by Sajid Khan is coming out Friday, while Mohit Suri`s directorial venture ‘Ek Villain’ will be released June 27.
The actor says there`s a risk involved when two films from two different genres come out at a very short interval, but smart marketing sorted it out.
"As an actor it`s exciting. In `Ek Villain`, it is a very different role. The biggest fear was this film is coming with `Humshakals`, so will the audience accept me? But the publicity has been done smartly,” Riteish said.
"To pull off `Humshakals` was more difficult than pulling off `Ek Villain` because physically it`s more challenging. Mentally `Ek Villain` was hard work because there are lots of layers in it. It has been a great experience," he added.
