Laughter relieves stress – Ritesh Deshmukh
Let there be any relationship in human life. Then it will be between lover and lover. Human relationship is an important part of the relationship between two friends, be it between brothers and sisters, be it between mother and children. There are differences in any relationship. However, laughter is important for them to come together, says actor, producer and director Ritesh Deshmukh.
Riteish Deshmukh and actress Genelia D’Souza were interviewed in the program ‘Swasthayam’. Also, the film ‘Wade’ directed by Ritesh Deshmukh, was promoted.
Actor Riteish Deshmukh, who has won the hearts of people for his excellent acting, is very active on social media. He is always sharing pictures and funny videos with his wife, Genelia. Everyone was stressed during the lockdown. He said that the idea for this funny video came from him and got a good response.
Talking about his upcoming film ‘VED’, Ritesh said this film is not a ‘love triangle’ but two ‘love stories. Life is not fun if there is no madness. Love without passion does not love. We are all alive, but madness keeps us alive. In love, when it has to devote itself, it can do so. It does not happen in men. He said that any kind of love could be done by these women. That is the essence of the movie ‘VED’.
Genelia said about her 10-year friendship with Riteish before marriage, “We didn’t decide to get married in a certain year. Ritesh told me that you should focus on your career. We both decided to enjoy life instead of getting married right away.
When asked if she likes Riteish more as a husband, actor, director, producer or father, Genelia replied that Riteish is “all in one”.

While answering the questions asked by Abhijit Pawar, Shri M said Guru has a unique importance in life. According to our karma, we get the right Guru. Along with respecting the Guru, follow the path shown by him. Sadhana gives one the power to love all without looking at externals. Self-love is the most important thing. In Kaliyuga, churning is going on. Initially, the poison will come out, and then nectar will come out. Sadhana gives one the power to love all without looking at externals. Self-love is the most important thing. She also said. The organized program was moderated by Yogesh Deshpande and Vansundhar.
