Actor Riteish Deshmukh was last seen in Ahmed Khan’s Baaghi 3 alongside Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor. And this year the actor has two more movies lined up – the Nagraj Manjule helmed film on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and the multi-starrer Housefull 5. Now according to a report by Pinkvilla, the actor is gearing up to produce a comedy film in which he is all set to play the lead. The actor has found his leading lady as well and it’s none other than Tamannaah Bhatia.
The publication quoted a source as saying—”This one is a laugh riot which Riteish and his team has been working on for a while. As of now the plan is to make it a direct to OTT release. Besides Ritesh, Tamannaah Bhatia will also feature in the film. She has liked the script but is yet to sign on the dotted line”
For the unversed, Ritesh and Tamannaah have earlier worked together in Humshakals in 2014.
Earlier, Riteish has backed films like Yellow, Balak Palak, Mauli and Faster Fene. Genelia Deshmukh too will be involved with the production of this film.
