Actor Riteish Deshmukh has been a part of several ensemble films. Though it’s great fun to work with a big gang, he tells us that working with a big line up of actors in a film can be great for every artist.

“Having worked in many multiple star cast films I can tell you the benefits of it. First of all, you get to work with your best friends and you get to spend quality time with them once the shoots are over. Secondly, the pressure of delivering a hit is not on you alone. It is equally divided with all the actors,” he says.

Riteish, who has been part of multi-starrers such as Kyaa Kool Hai Hum (2005) , Hey Babyy(2007), Grand Masti (2013) and Humshakals (2014), will soon be seen in the third instalment of Housefull (2010) and having been part of the first two films as well, the actor says he feels no pressure in terms of delivering a hit. “Everything depends on the script. Before we start shooting, we know if the script is strong enough or funny enough to take it ahead and with a film like Housefull, it’s a collective task and everyone puts in equal effort to make it work,” says the actor.

This is a mass entertainer which I think he is very good at. He has this amazing capacity of having a poker face and delivering great lines,” says Deshmukh, who has worked with Bachchan in Naach (2004) and Bluffmaster (2005).
