Actor-producer Riteish Deshmukh is happy to have completed a decade in Bollywood as he never thought he would survive in the industry for so long. The 34-year-old actor debuted with K Vijaya Bhaskar’s ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’ in 2003 opposite Genelia D’Souza, but it was not until 2004 that he achieved success when he appeared in ‘Masti’ and ‘Bardaasht’. “The journey has been great. I never thought I would last in this industry for ten years. In fact, I never thought I would last beyond my first film. But it has been a great decade. I have worked with new filmmakers and superstars be it Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan. I have made many friends. It has been a very fulfilling journey as a whole,” said Riteish. In January this year, Ritesh also made a successful debut as a film producer with Marathi film ‘Balak Palak’, directed by Ravi Jhadhav, which recently completed 100 days in cinemas. The film is a comedy-drama, which deals with the topic of sex education of adolescents.
