When we talk about Riteish Deshmukh, we have to talk about Dhamaal. The multi-starrer comedy has managed to find a place in our list of favourite comedies of all time.

Heyy Babyy

Next comes his comedy movie by Sajid Khan. In this film, he plays the role of Tanmay Joglekar, one of the three friends who decide to take care of a baby left at their doorstep. Besides comedy, this role demanded him to show his emotional side and he nailed it as easily.

Apna Sapna Money Money

Another comedy that managed to achieve a cult status is Apna Sapna Money Money. Besides its entertaining story, the other notable thing in this movie was Riteish Deshmukh’s masquerades. He donned multiple avatars and nailed them with all his quirks. This is a sign of a genius actor.

 Lai Bhaari

Well, we saved the best for the last. One of Riteish’s best performances was when he stuck to his roots and did this exhilarating Marathi film. In this film, Riteish plays a double role; one is Prince and the other is Mauli. Where Prince is shown as a gentle guy, Mauli, on the other hand, is a rowdy and violent man. Riteish effectively played both his roles and gave a ‘lai bhaari’ performance indeed.
