Riteish Deshmukh: Don’t have a problem working in multi-starrers, only matters is a good script
Actor Riteish Deshmukh is best known for his work in films like ‘Masti’, ‘Housefull’, ‘Malamaal Weekly’, ‘Dhamaal’ and ‘Apna Sapna Money Money’. Having started his career over 16 years ago with the standalone film ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’, Riteish has mostly featured in multi-starrers. However, he has no regret about it.
In an interview with IANS, Riteish said, “Why should I have any problem with that. For me, a good role and a good script matter the most.” “First of all when you do a multi-starrer film, one should know what part he/she is doing. If you are happy with it, you should go for it and give 100 per cent to it,” he added.
The 40-year-old actor also feels people need to change their attitude towards multi-starrers. “And honestly speaking, a multi-starrer film reflects the real abilities of an actor. Among several other talented actors, if you are able to impress the audience then that shows your real powers,” he noted. The actor further stated that people should now start using ensemble cast instead of the word multi-starrer.
According to Riteish, there is more scope of improvement and learning new things while working with multiple actors. “I worked with both Anil sir and Madhuri ma’am in this film. We all know how talented they are. It was like a dream come true because I have grown up watching them. While shooting with them, it was like I was learning a new thing about acting from them every other day,” he concluded.
‘Total Dhamaal’, the third instalment of Indra Kumar’s ‘Dhamaal’ franchise, released on Friday. The film stars Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Sanjay Mishra, Boman Irani, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, and Javed Jaffery, among others.
