Mumbai | Riteish Deshmukh may have featured in many adult comedies, but actor is not embarrassed about any of his work. The 37-year-old actor has acted in adult comedies like Kya Kool Hai Hum, Kya Super Kool Hai Hum and his latest Great Grand Masti.

When asked how his son, who is one-and-a-half years old, will react to his movies when he grows up, Riteish said, When I do films, I do it because it is important for me how I feel about films. I am sure as an actor there are some movies which he can watch two years from now and some after 18 years.

Let him watch them, if he likes them fine, if he doesn’t that’s also fine. I am not embarrassed about any of my work, he said.

The actor was talking to reporters at the trailer launch of Great Grand Masti last night. Riteish, 37, said he has worked in several diverse movies, like the raunchy comedy Grand Masti, Marathi action film Lai Bhaari and the thriller Ek Villain.

On being quizzed if his adult comedies might make the actor’s Marathi audience sad, Riteish said the viewers have been kind to him so far. As an actor I get an opportunity to do various films, adult and naughty comedy being one of them. I don’t look down upon any genre.

I am happy that ‘Grand Masti’ was a successful film, that’s the reason we are coming back with this. I am happy that ‘Lai Bhaari’ was successful too. Audience has been very kind to me, he said. Great Grand Masti is the third installment in the Masti franchise. The film also stars franchise regular Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani.

The Housefull 3 actor says while there may come a saturation point for him in doing adult comedies, newness in the subject can always make the work interesting. Of course there can be (saturation point).

The idea is, everyone does realize while doing a film that there could be a saturation point, but when you have something new to offer, there is new humour. The Indra Kumar-directed film, also starring Urvashi Rautela, is set to release on July 22.
