On the occasion of the World Day Against Child Labour on Monday, actor Riteish Deshmukh and his brother Dhiraj Deshmukh stood up against child labour and urged fans to help children to go to school. "Creating an opportunity for every child to go to school is the greatest service not only to your own country, but also to humanity," Riteish posted on Twitter.
Riteish, who is married to actress Genelia Deshmukh, has two sons -- Riaan and Rahyl -- with her. Dhiraj tweeted: "Just like my kids need education first, I stand for every child to be in school and not working. World against child labour."
On the work front, Riteish is currently gearing up for the release of "Bank Chor", which also features Vivek Oberoi. The film will release on Friday.
With actors Riteish Deshmukh and Vivek Anand Oberoi in lead roles, "Bank Chor" is the story of three men who choose the worst day possible to rob a bank. The three 'chors' -- Champak, Genda and Gulab -- are simpletons and their banter has no adult humour, read a statement from Y-Films. The film, directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil, also features Rhea Chakraborty, Sahil Vaid, Bhuvan Arora, Vikram Thapa and Baba Sehgal.
Riteish says it is Vivek's character in "Bank Chor", which gives an edge to the forthcoming film. "Vivek Oberoi plays a CBI officer in the film, which gives an edge to the film. There comes a time when you start asking whether this cop is trying to solve the investigation or complicate it. Is he really a hero or villain, that's the edge" said Riteish promoting his film on the show "Chidiya Ghar".
