Riteish Deshmukh is known for his wit and humour and often manages to tickle the funny bone of the audience. But his recent harmless tweet about weight gain during festivals irked a Twitter user who accused the actor of being biased towards Hindu festivals.
Sharing the costs of sweets such as laddu, jalebi, kaju ki barfi and chocolate, Riteish warned people to make wise decisions during festivals. However, one Twitter user interpreted his tweet against Hindu festivals and tried to school him by replying to his tweet in Hindi, "You people are enlightened only during Sanatani (Hindu) festivals? Eid ya New Year ya Christmas par muh mein dahi jama lete ho (Cat gets your tongue on festivals such as Eid, New Year, or Christmas?)!”
Riteish, however, didn't lose his calm and responded to the Twitter user in his inimitable way. "Sorry sir – Main Vegan hoon, dahi nahi khaata (Sorry sir, I’m vegan. I don’t eat curd),” he replied.
Recently, when Riteish and wife Genelia D'Souza on Pinch 2, host Arbaaz Khan read out some comments from trolls who told Genelia to hit him with a slipper. To which, Riteish responded, "Jhadoo ne kya bura kiya (why can’t she choose a broom)?”
Another troll asked Riteish to focus on his wife after watching the viral video of him kissing Preity Zinta's hands while Genelia looked at him in anger. "Totally his fault. He should focus on his wife more,” the troll commented. Responding to it, Riteish said, "You focus on your wife, not on mine.”
