F.A.L.T.U. the movie, which released on April 1st, has had
audiences all across the world smile in warmth over the contents of the
film. One such is none other than the popular actor who is a part of the
movie himself. We, of course, are talking about Riteish Deshmukh.
Riteish plays the role of a college principal,
a character poles apart from what we saw of Amitabh Bachchan in Mohabbatein
The actor clarifies that he plays a role of a principal who is more
like a friend to his students. He is one of those young principals who
believe that studies are important but along with that, students should
also be encouraged to participate in other things as well.
When Riteish was asked about how he would feel if someone called him faltu,
he replies that before when people used to call him that, he used to
feel really bad but after such a film, he'd rather take it as an
accomplishment. The definition of word has also now slightly changed for
the actor, feeling that faltu now rather means cool and shouldn't really have one meaning, nor does it have to be something bad or useless.
questions have arisen on the title of the movie but Riteish goes on to
explain that they had thought about changing the title couple of times
but Vashu Bhagnani and Remo D'Souza were determined it was perfect for
their flick. One would have to watch the movie to understand the reason
The movie's release also had a lot of speculations about who would be in and who wouldn't. Rumors had it that F.A.L.T.U.
would see big stars like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor
in cameo roles. However, Jacky Bhagnani cleared the air saying that it
would have been great to have such big actors in the movie, but this is
just not true. F.A.L.T.U. just stars him along with Riteish
Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Puja Gupta and Chandan Roy Sanyal. The actor
also chipped in that he himself also doesn't feel bad about being called
a faltu because he believes a lot of people who are now big stars themselves were at one point called faltu, but look where they stand now. He just hopes the movie receives a lot of success and becomes lucky for him.
Here's wishing all the stars and the movie lots of luck! Be sure to catch F.A.L.T.U. if you haven't already!
