I won’t say I’ve replaced Riteish: Krushna Abhishek

Actor Riteish Deshmukh was seen in the first two parts of Kyaa Kool Hain Hum franchise.

For the third installment, Krushna Abhishek has been finalised, but the actor doesn’t like it when people say that he has "replaced" the original actor. "I am doing the third part of Kyaa Kool Hain Hum franchise. Riteish is not doing it this time. So, I will be seen with Tusshar (Kapoor) and Aftab (Shivdasani). Riteish left the film because I think he doesn’t want to do sex comedy ­anymore. I don’t know the reason, but I won’t say I’ve replaced him," he says.


Prior to this, Krushna, who shot to fame with Comedy Circus, had ­featured in slapstick ­comedy Entertainment, which was earlier offered to the Grand Masti star. "Riteish was to do Entertainment. He had come for promotion of Grand Masti on Comedy Circus. He said that he can’t do Entertainment and have asked the makers to take me in the film. There were tongue twisting lines and he believed I could do it better," he said.

Krushna describes the situation as a happy ­"coincidence". "I hope he gets so busy that he turns down six, seven more films and recommends me," said Krushna, who will soon be seen as an acting ­teacher on sitcom, Comedy Classes. His wish might actually come true as there are reports that he might replace Riteish in Housefull 3.

When asked about the same, he refused to comment on it saying he hasn’t singed on the dotted lines, so he doesn’t want to "talk about it."

While his ­presence in Housefull 3 is still uncertain, he is sure about the kind of films he wants to do. “No one will come to theatre if I do a solo film. I want to do good and big films. I don’t want to do solo hero films, maybe I don’t have the confidence."
