One of Bollywood’s finest actors, Riteish Deshmukh will turn 44 on December 17.  Born into a family of politicians, Riteish is the son of former Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh. But he found his calling in acting. He made his Bollywood debut in 2003 with Tujhe Meri Kasam, a love story starring Genelia D'Souza, who became his partner in real life as well. Despite the failure of his first two films, Tujhe Meri Kasam and Out of Control, Riteish found success with his third, Indra Kumar's 2004 multi-starrer Masti, a comedy-thriller that ruled the box office for weeks. Let's look at some of his finest comedy films
