Fatherhood makes you grounded: Ritesh Deshmukh

Riteish, son of former Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, has been in Bollywood for over a decade. “I think I have been really lucky that I am here and people have been extremely tolerant to have me on screen trying to entertain them. I feel blessed to be here and I think 14 years is a long time. I am glad that I have good work,” he said.

He married actor Genelia Deshmukh in 2012 and is also a proud father of two sons -- Riaan and Rahyl.

Its quite interesting when actors become fathers because they're such a brink of fame and always being watched by their fans. It becomes a very real, personal and grounding experience for them. It helps you handle your fame better, because you have a new perspective and a responsibility. 

Actor Riteish Deshmukh says stepping into parenthood has helped him evolve as a person and made him more grounded. “It (fatherhood) makes you more grounded. You become a family man once you are married, but once you are a parent, you understand the gravity of it. I think it’s a wonderful feeling. The best thing that can happen to any individual,” said Riteish.

However, he takes it all positively. “I think that’s the fun part of our job. You struggle through everything and you are able to go home and say that ‘It was a good day’,” he added.

Riteish has mostly been seen in comedy films like Kya Kool Hai Hum, Dhamaal, Housefull, Housefull 2 and the Masti franchise.

Here are some endearing pictures of him and his sons:
