Riteish Deshmukh to star in father Vilasrao Deshmukh biopic?
Riteish Deshmukh is reportedly being lured to star in a biopic of his father Vilasrao Deshmukh, who was the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
Talking about this, Deshmukh was cited in Deccan Chronicle saying, “His biopic can be an interesting one as he has risen from being the village sarpanch to the chief minister. It can be a great story as an individual. Many people have written a script on his life, but it will not be easy for us to produce his biopic as he is very close to our hearts. So obviously, as a family, we will not be able to make it. What we may like to show in that restrained time of about two hours, others may like to see something else. Also if someone else makes it, we may feel like ‘Why has he shown him in this light? He was not like this?’ Therefore, making an individual’s biopic who has risen to such heights will be undoubtedly interesting and a great story to tell.”
Deshmukh is currently promoting Ahmed Khan’s ‘Baaghi 3’, where he stars with Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor. He said, “When I received a call from Sajid Nadiadwala (producer), I was like, ‘mein kya kar raha hoon iss sequel mein (What am I doing in this sequel)? But then, no sooner did Ahmed Khan came home for narration, I was emotional enough about the story of two brothers. I could identify with it because, since the time I am born, us (real) brothers have had the same connect until this day. And so I agreed to be the part of this sequel.”
