Riteish Deshmukh: Marathi audiences accept films with unique concepts

Actor-producer Riteish, whose upcoming Marathi production Yellow deals with children with special needs, says films with unique concepts gain wider acceptance among Marathi audiences compared to Hindi

“I had not seen any film on such subject and I felt that I must make the film, so we made it in Marathi,” said Riteish Deshmukh.

“It is much easier to make such films in Marathi than Hindi because the Marathi audience accepts such unique subjects more as compared to the Hindi audience,” he added. Yellow is Riteish’s second Marathi production venture, after hit film Balak Palak.

“I think we were able to justify this (the subject of ‘Yellow’) more in Marathi. If we have to remake it in Hindi, then we will have to work on it or do something else,” he added.

Yellow features Gauri Gadgil, whom the film is based on, in the lead. Riteish said: “Yellow is an out and out emotional rollercoaster ride that will make you laugh. It’s a sports film and also has an exciting climax.”

Directed by Mahesh Limaye, Yellow also features Upendra Limaye, Aishwaraya Narkar, Usha Nadkarni and Mrunal Kulkarni.Subscribe to me on YouTube
