Riteish to enter politics!

It looks like actor Riteish Deshmukh will get into politics soon. Son of the former chief minister of Maharashtra the late Vilasrao Deshmukh, is gearing up for a politicial career.
He hails from the politically dominant Maratha community. His brother Amit is the current Congress MLA from Latur, and Riteish played an active part in his campaigning. He was very close to his father, and they would always talk about politics. Says an actor who has worked with Ritiesh, “He would talk to his dad every single day. Even while on outdoor shoots, they would have long telephonic conversations. He has learnt a lot from his dad. He may not talk about it to his filmi friends, but he understands politics very well. And he will eventually get into it. And he must. It would be such a waste if he didn’t.”
Another source says, “Politics is in Riteish’s blood and now with elections approaching in the next year, it is the right time for him to take the plunge. People in political circles as well as the film industry feel that he is perfect for the job. Clean, chivalrous and conscientious.”  Recently a producer asked Ritiesh if he would eventually join some party, a shocked Riteish replied that there was no question of him joining anywhere but the Congress Party as his family has been part of it for generations... and he kind of let the cat out of the bag.
