Riteish Deshmukh is pretty happy with his experience with Housefull 2. He enjoyed working with veteran actors like Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborthy. What heightened his enjoyment were the stories that these people narrated about the age when they were young. Ritesh, it seems, has returned as a learned man after the film’s shoot.
Talking about them, Riteish said that he had a great experience with them. He felt amazing to see Rishi Kapoor act in front of him. What made the experience even more joyous was the fact that he was working with actors whose films have shaped his childhood. Ritesh added that they had so many stories to tell about their time that he felt totally blessed. Talking about Randhir Kapoor, the actor said that Kapoor spoke about his relationship with his father Raj Kapoor and how he became a director.
When asked if he could share any one of the story with us, Riteish recollected that Randhir Kapoor told him that he debuted both as a director and an actor simultaneously in a film at the age of 21. He holds the privilege of directing his father and grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor in his first film ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’. Well, we don’t how the film will affect Riteish Deshmukh but it seems his newly-gained knowledge about the film industry of that era will really help him be a better actor.
