Mumbai: An actor who is best known for his impeccable comic timing – Riteish Deshmukh – turned 36 today.
Son for former Maharashtra Chief Minister Late Vilasrao Deskhmukh, Riteish, began his acting career with a romantic film ‘Tujhe Meri Qasam’, opposite Genlia D’Souza (now his real life wife) in 2003 and went on to work in several films.
The year 2014 has been a remarkable one for Deshmukh, for he saw three of his films do exceptionally well at the Box Office.
It began with ‘Humshakals’, followed by ‘Ek Villain’ and his debut Marathi Film as an actor- ‘Lai Bhaari’.
For someone who was being stereotyped as a comedian, ‘Ek Vilain’ helped Riteish in garnering applause from both the audiences and critics alike. The film which also featured Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor, saw Riteish in an avatar that send shivers down the spine of many.
Riteish, who married Genelia in 2012, welcomed his first child- Riaan – on 25 November 2014.
Here’s wishing Riteish a very Happy Birthday.
