Lok Sabha Elections are currently going on in India and every party is just trying to demean the opposition party. Recently, Union minister Piyush Goyal targeted late Congress leader Vilasrao Deshmukh. Goyal stated, “The then Congress government was weak and could not do anything. Vilasrao Deshmukh had brought a film producer outside Oberoi Hotel while shooting and bombing was going on inside. He was concerned about getting his son a role in a movie.”

Well, this statement of Goyal grabbed the attention of Riteish Deshmukh and the actor took to Twitter to defend his father. In his tweet, Riteish has written that it is true that he visited Taj Hotel with his father but not during the shooting and bombing. He also stated that his father never spoke to any producer or director to get him a role and he takes pride in it. The actor in his statement has also written that Goyal is seven years late or else his father would have replied to him.

Riteish’s statement is very respectful and a lot of Bollywood celebs are supporting him for the same.

Coming to his movies, Riteish will next be seen in Housefull 4 which is slated to hit the screens on Diwali this year.
