On father’s 70th birth anniversary, Riteish Deshmukh gets nostalgic


Nostalgia engulfed Riteish Deshmukh on the 70th birth anniversary of his late father Vilasrao Deshmukh on Tuesday. The actor says he aspires to be as loving a dad to his son Riaan as his dad was to him.

Vilasrao Deshmukh, a two-time chief minister of Maharashtra, died in 2012 due to multi-organ failure. Riteish is one of his three sons.

The actor took to micro-blogging website Twitter, and posted: “Happy Birthday PAPPA : the father that you were to me, is what I aspire to be to my son. 70thBirthAnniversasry,” the 37-year-old tweeted.

Riteish, who is married to Genelia D’Souza, was blessed with a son in November 2014.
