Riteish’s maiden Marathi film venture pays off
Riteish Deshmukh's Mumbai Film Company started 2013 on a high note with his maiden Marathi film 'Balak Palak' (BP).
Says an elated Riteish, "I'm really thrilled with the response to the film. BP deals with an interesting concept — the need of sex education among children and how parents deal with it. Director Ravi Jadhav's story has a strong appeal. It's a family film and they are enjoying it. We hope this effort helps to form a better communication channel between parents and children."
A lot of Bollywood biggies have supported the film, too. Calling it a "simple story, beautifully narrated", Akshay Kumar said, "I recommend it to all parents. Kids grow up faster than we think. The film will teach a thing or two about parenting." Karan Johar said he "absolutely adored" the film for conveying "such an important message so brilliantly". Calling it "one of the most beautiful films", Abhishek Bachchan said he was proud of Riteish for producing this film.
A distributor says, "BP marks the end of a six-week lull at the Marathi box office. Riteish's association with the film has been the reason for it's success." This year also marks Riteish's completion of a decade in Bollywood. He has a number of films lined up for release — Grand Masti, Filmy Picture (remake of the Telugu film Sudigadu) and his next Marathi production, in which he'll be acting too.
