Two months after revealing the teaser of his upcoming film Banjo, Riteish Deshmukh launched the film’s first trailer Tuesday evening.

Though he started his career with Tujhe Meri Kasam (2003), he has mostly played a second fiddle. With Banjo, the actor is set to prove his mettle once again as the solo lead with Ravi Jadhav’s directorial venture.

Riteish is a musical sensation while Nargis Fakhri is a DJ who arrives in Mumbai in search of original music and finds Riteish’s band. Dharmesh Yelande of dance reality TV show Dance India Dance fame plays Riteish’s band member in the film.

The three-minute-long trailer begins with introducing Riteish and his band and brings Nargis soon enough to keep us engaged. It tells us that Nargis wants to take Riteish’s band to bigger fields but her boss won’t allow the ‘street players’ on his turf. Will Riteish win this battle? Well, we don’t know about the film but his acting in the trailer certainly makes him a winner for us.
