Riteish, the real joker

So you thought comedy is all about words? Atleast Riteish Deshmukh doesn't think so. That is probably why the actor likes to speak less through his words and more through his body language. Yes, he entertains! But not through the witty dialogues like his co-star of Do Knot Disturb, Govinda. He has this unique way of making people laugh with his funny actions.

In Delhi for promoting his upcoming film Do Knot Disturb, Riteish was talking more with his brain than his tongue. Yes you got it right. He opened his mouth on a few occasions, but attracted a good amount of attention with his antics.

A voice from the corner says, Hello... Hello... Hello... Riteish. The actor immediately takes out his cellphone and says - "Hello". It's only when the confused journo looks here and there, that the actor laughs and gives him attention.

Ask him about his working experience with Govinda and he has some interesting things to say about him. "Govinda hansaate hansaate bhi rula dega aur hanste hanste bhi. He is a complete actor. Restricting him to a comedy image would be unfair."

When we ask him with whom he had the best working experience - David, Lara or Govinda, the actor politically but comically responds, "If you have three chocolates in hand, can you distinguish which is tastier? All of them are wonderful to work with."

Well Riteish we do hope that with all these "chocolates" the film reaps sweet results at the box-office.
