Riteish Deshmukh wants to make a biopic on his father late Vilasrao Deshmukh

Bollywood actor, Riteish Deshmukh, who has entertained us with his quirky ways and comic timing for so many years, wishes to make a film on the life of his father, the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra, late Vilasrao Deshmukh. 

Although he has been wishing this for a while now, he’s waiting for the right script to come his way, which will entertain the audience as well as do justice to his father’s journey. T
alking about the same during a recent interview Riteish said, “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 the 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.”

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.”

Riteish continued explaining himself by saying, “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 need to take care. Hopefully, if something comes up, then why not? But it’s not in the agenda in the near future.” We hope Riteish fulfils his dream and very soon!
