Riteish to produce, host Marathi version of ‘Bigg Boss’
Mumbai: After his successful maiden production venture in Marathi film 'Balak Palak' (BP), buzz is that actor Riteish Deshmukh is going to produce and host Marathi version of popular reality show 'Bigg Boss'.
"It is too premature to talk about Marathi 'Bigg Boss'. We will talk about it when anything concrete happens…when the time is right," Riteish said in an interview here.
The actor, currently basking in the glory of 'Balak Palak', said he would like to go for the remake of the film in Hindi.
"I am trying to make my Marathi film 'Balak Palak' in Hindi. I am in support of remakes as it is because of that I am here. My debut Hindi film was a remake," he said.
'Balak Palak', directed by Ravi Jadhav, was based on curiosity about sex among adolescents. The film got good response from the audience.
Ritiesh said he was quite excited about his debut Marathi film – 'Lai Bhaari' which has already gone on floor.
"I am working in a Marathi film 'Lai Bhaari' directed by Nishikant Kamat. We have started working on it…We have shot for about 15 days," he said.
As far his Hindi film commitments are concerned, Riteish will be seen next in Sajid Khan's yet-to-be-titled comedy film with Saif Ali Khan and Jacqueline Fernandes.
"I am doing his next film with Saif. I am not playing a negative role in this film. I can't talk much about the film," the actor said.
