Bollywood actor-cum-producer Riteish Deshmukh, who himself has produced some successful films in Marathi, is excited with the box office performance of regional films.
“It’s great! It’s wonderful that regional films are doing great business. ‘Sairat’ has managed to collect over Rs.75 crore in Maharashtra… It is outstanding. Marathi films are growing, and that’ss great,” Riteish said in a statement.
“Every film should be able to do that kind of business with lesser screens. If we are able to maintain the content, Marathi film industry can be as strong as the Telugu and Tamil film industries.”
Presently, Riteish is busy promoting his upcoming film Housefull 3, which also stars Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri, and Lisa Haydon.
Directed by Sajid-Farhad, Housefull 3 is releasing on June 3.Stay tuned for more with www.cinenewz.com also on : Tweet to @Its_CineNewz
