Riteish Deshmukh seems to have finally decided to follow his father’s footsteps and foray into politics! The ‘Housefull’ actor is set to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in India that will be held in 2019. Riteish will be a candidate from his father Vilasrao Deshmukh’s home constituency – Latur, from the Congress party, state reports. Riteish is also a successful Marathi film producer and hence is expected that he will make for a popular political candidate since he would have the pulse of people on ground level. On the work front, the actor is busy with two comic capers coming up, ‘Housefull 4’ and ‘Total Dhamaal’, while Riteish is also working on his Marathi home production film ‘Mauli’.
