Riteish Deshmukh on doing a Marathi film with Genelia

Actor-producer Riteish Deshmukh, who has earlier shared the screen space with his “favourite co-star” and wife Genelia, says it’s his dream to work with her in a Marathi film.

Asked when the audience will get to see him and Genelia in a movie together again, Riteish said: “I am hoping that happens soon because she is my favourite co-star. I really enjoy working with her.”

“I want her to do a Marathi film with me because she does (films in) so many languages… So that would be my dream to do a Marathi film with Genelia.”

The actor, who is also a film producer, is happy to witness the growth in the Marathi film industry.


“I’m glad that the Marathi industry is flourishing. They are great on content and I have three projects lined up. I will only be producing one of the projects and I am thrilled about it,” he added.

Riteish and Genelia got married in 2012 and had their first child, a son named Riaan, in November 2014. Genelia gave birth to their second son in Mumbai on June 1 this year.

Riteish is extremely happy how his elder son is bonding with the newborn.

“Riaan is bonding well with Rahyl. It feels great to see them bonding so well.”
