Riteish Deshmukh won much praise for his performance in Mohit Suri�۪s ��Ek Villain�۪ (2014), even though it was a character far removed from what the audience usually sees him portraying.�� Apparently, Suri was so impressed with Deshmukh�۪s work ethic and so happy with the response Deshmukh received, that the director and actor have already decided to work together again, this time for a biopic based on Marathi actor, Dada Kondke.
���Because Riteish has a strong Marathi background and great comic timing, he has been signed for the biopic.�� This film wil bring Riteish and Mohit together yet again after ��Ek Villain�۪.�� Mohit is known for his kind of films.�� Riteish and Mohti share a great off-screen chemistry.�� However, the film is in the initial stages as the writers are still working on it script,� a source told Absolute India.
The biopic, which is expected to start shooting early next year, will be co-produced by Riteish Deshmukh himself and Akshay Kumar�۪s production house, Grazing Goat Pictures.
Deshmukh will first start shooting for Y Films�۪ ��Bank Chor�۪, in which he has replaced comedian Kapil Sharma.
