In an interview with The Times Of India, Riteish Deshmukh talked about making sex comedies and shared his thoughts on this particular genre of films and how it is growing in the Hindi film industry. The charming actor, Riteish has worked in many successful sex comedy films, and shared that he was not ashamed to make such films and instead proudly called himself the only actor to have worked in 4 to 5 comedies for adults. Reflecting further on the kind of family environment he grew up in, Riteish shared his late father, Vilasrao Deshmukh’s reaction to his decision to do steamy comedies. The doting son has told how he worked in sex comedy films when his father was chief minister of Maharashtra. In his words:
“I’m the only actor who’s done 4 or 5 sex comedies, and I’m not ashamed of that. After a while, there’s nothing left to offer. I never thought about what my son would think in the future. When I did that, my father was the chief minister of Maharashtra. I made that choice. My parents never told me what to do, what not to do. They allowed me to make my own choice. When it comes to making a choice for my children, they don’t really know my job.”
Also, in the same interview, Riteish Deshmukh talked about his kids, Rahyl Deshmukh and Riaan Deshmukh and surprisingly revealed that they didn’t know he was a movie star. Talking more about how he wanted his kids to stay away from showbiz and fame, Riteish admitted that his kids don’t know much about his profession. Speaking of the same, he explained:
“My kids still don’t understand why dads (paparazzi) and fans want to click pictures with me. They still aren’t aware of fame. Fame is only temporary. What you think fame is, could just be an illusion My kids go to school and their friends tell them your dad is a star.”

Everyone knows that Riteish Deshmukh was quite close to his late father, Vilasrao Deshmukh, like all sons in the world. This is the reason why it is quite difficult for him to live with the fact that his father is no longer with him. However, from time to time, he does his best to keep it in his memories. For example, on August 14, 2021, Riteish posted an emotional video on the 9th anniversary of his father’s death. In the heartbreaking video, the doting son could be seen stroking his dad’s white kurta and Nehru jacket. Along with this video, he wrote:
“I miss you everyday PAPPA!! #vilasraodeshmukh.”
On a professional level, Riteish Deshmukh will next be seen in the comedy show, Toh Banta Hai case.
