Riteish Deshmukh: Hope to make a biopic on my father’s life


Actor Riteish Deshmukh hopes someday he will make a film on his father live the late former Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Vilasrao Deshmukh. He said he is waiting for someone to make a right script that will entertain the audience as well he can do justice to his father’s journey.

He told us about his father’s journey that “It is one of those miraculous journeys of a human being. He started off as a sarpanch (head of Gram Sabha) and went on to become Chief Minister of a state. Many a time, people have written scripts about his life and asked me to make a film but it is not easy,” said Riteish.

He added: “When a subject is so close to your heart then you forget objectivity. Just suppose, I make a film on his life and people say I have shown only the good things about him and not shown the other side of his life. If somebody else makes it, then I will say, ‘he wasn’t like this, he never used to talk like this and certain things never happened in his life’. So, there will always be a difference in opinions when you make films on such subjects.”

He told us he hoped to make a film about his father’s life someday. “When you write a book on someone’s life, you can write 500 or 600 pages. But it is very difficult to show all aspects of a person’s life in a two-hour film. If you don’t succeed, the biopic gets boring. So, one needs to take care of it. Hopefully, if something comes up, then why not? But it’s not on the agenda in the near future,” the actor explained.

Riteish Deshmukh was interacting with the media on the promotional event of “Baaghi 3”. Tiger Shroff with Shraddha Kapoor is in the main lead of the film, and the film is directed by Ahmed Khan. The third film of the “Baaghi” franchise is an official remake of the blockbuster Tamil movie “Vettai”. The movie will be released on 6 March 2020.
