In his youth, Ritesh Deshmukh did not even think about the career of an actor, but once he was on the set, everything changed. The Indian actor first appeared on the screens at the age of 25 and since then has constantly delighted viewers with images of funny and memorable characters.
Childhood and youth
Ritesh Deshmukh was born on December 17, 1978 in the Indian city of Latour. He was the middle child in a politician’s family and grew up with his older brother Amit and the younger Dhiraj, who eventually followed in his father’s footsteps.
Soon the head of the family received the post of minister, and they had to move to Mumbai, where it was not easy without their home. Ritesh had to repeatedly change schools and live in a cramped dorm room with his father
The personal life of a celebrity was successful. During the filming of his first film, the guy met the young actress Zhenelia De Souza, who was also just starting her career. The artist immediately liked the girl, but at first she avoided him, because she was afraid that, being the son of a politician, he would behave arrogantly.
Soon, the young people became friends, and then began dating. The relationship lasted almost 10 years, and in 2012 the stars decided to get married. 2 years later, Genelia gave birth to her beloved eldest son Rian, and then the younger Rachel.
The actor’s screen debut was the film Tujhe Meri Kasam, which was released in 2003 and did not bring him fame. But already the next project “Coming to the full” allowed the audience to appreciate the guy’s talent and made him a star of the comedy genre.
After that, the actor regularly replenished the filmography, participating in the filming of such films as “Cool Company”, “King of Bluffs” and “High Five”, which were warmly received by the audience. But the attempt to play up the plot of the tale of Aladdin in modern realities turned out to be a failure.
