Riteish Deshmukh (born 17 December 1978) is an Indian architect, film actor and producer active in Indian films. He is the son of the late politician Vilasrao Deshmukh and Vaishali Deshmukh.[1][2]

Deshmukh debuted with K. Vijaya Bhaskar's Tujhe Meri Kasam (2003) opposite Genelia D'Souza, but it was not until 2004 that he achieved some success, when he appeared in the commercially successful comedy Masti and the critically acclaimed Bardaasht. His work in Masti was nominated for several awards, including the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor category. Since then, Riteish Deshmukh has starred in many commercially successful films such as Kya Kool Hai Hum, Bluffmaster!, Malamaal Weekly, Heyy Babyy, Dhamaal, De Taali, Housefull (2010 film), Double Dhamaal, Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya, Housefull 2, Kya Super Kool Hain Hum and the latest blockbuster Grand Masti.

Besides acting, Riteish owns the 'Veer Marathi' Celebrity Cricket League and is the team's captain. Bollywood actors Mahesh Manjrekar and Shreyas Talpade are part of the team.

In January 2013, Ritesh made his debut as an film producer with the Marathi success Balak Palak, directed by Ravi Jadhav.


Deshmukh began his film career with the 2003 romance, Tujhe Meri Kasam opposite Genelia D'Souza. He later appeared in Out of Control, which earned a relatively moderate return. In his third film, Masti, a comic thriller, his role was widely disparaged. Regardless, the film performed well at the box office. He gained fame after his performance in Masti, which earned him two minor awards. He subsequently appeared Bardaasht and Naach. His first relatively successful lead role occurred in the widely panned sex-comedy Kyaa Kool Hai Hum with Tusshar Kapoor. While the film was reviled by critics, it was tolerated by audiences and declared a moderate success at the box office.

He appeared in Malamaal Weekly and Apna Sapna Money Money apart from Bluffmaster! with Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.[3] He was seen in guest roles in Ram Gopal Varma's Darna Zaroori Hai,[4] and then Namastey London, which was a box office hit. In 2007, Cash followed.[3] Later that year, he appeared in Sajid Khan's directorial debut Heyy Babyy, co-starring Akshay Kumar and Fardeen Khan, which was a huge hit.[5] He appeared in the comedy Dhamaal which was an semi hit.

In 2008, he played a lead role in De Taali, in which his performance was praised, and later in Chamku, both of which were declared "flop" at the box office.[4]

In 2009, his first release was Aladin, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Jacqueline Fernandez. He was in the multi-starcast, Aladin, which was a disaster worldwide. He then played a supporting role in Ram Gopal Varma's Rann, again co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Paresh Rawal and Rajpal Yadav. His final film of 2009 was Do Knot Disturb with Govinda, Sushmita Sen, Sohail Khan and Lara Dutta.

In 2010, he worked with Sajid Khan on the comedy Housefull with Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, Arjun Rampal and Jiah Khan. The film received negative response from critics, though it was a Blockbuster commercially. His first release of 2011 was F.A.L.T.U., in which he played the role of Bajirao, a fake college principal. His second release of the year was the comic sequel Double Dhamaal. Both were above-average grossers[6] and very successful.[citation needed]

In 2012, he first appeared in Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya in which he is paired opposite his real wife Genelia D'Souza. It proved a commercial hit despite being a shoestring budget. He then starred in a sequel, Housefull 2, which released on 6 April 2012 and was a huge success like its predecessor. Housefull 2 has been marked as Ritesh's biggest success to date. His last release of the year and his latest film was sequel Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum, which released on 27 July 2012 and received positive to mixed reviews from critics who praised Riteish's performance. It proved to be a moderate success.

Deshmukh is currently attempting another sequel to the 2004 hit Masti titled Grand Masti which was scheduled to begin filming on 9 September 2012.Upon release, it became a blockbuster

Deshmukh made his debut as a film producer with the Marathi film Balak Palak, directed by Ravi Jadhav. It released on 4 January 2013 and was a success. Deshmukh has decided to make a Hindi remake of the film.
