Riteish Deshmukh to equal Shahrukh Khan's record?

Coming month could well spell a record outing for Riteish Deshmukh. Reason being that he is on course to equal record of none other than Shahrukh Khan who is the only actor in the recent times to have enjoyed 10 straight successes as a leading man.

Currently, Riteish stands at seven successes in a row and with HUMSHAKALS releasing tomorrow, EK VILLAIN a week later and his Marathi film LAI BHAARI a fortnight ahead on 11th July, there are good chances of one of the nicest actors in the industry to manage this feat.

Picture this - Shahrukh Khan's last film which didn't do too well was PAHELI (2005) and that was almost a decade back. Ever since then, he has enjoyed plus outings in the form of KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA, DON, CHAK DE! INDIA, OM SHANTI OM, RAB NE BANA DI JODI, MY NAME IS KHAN, RA. ONE, DON 2, JAB TAK HAI JAAN and CHENNAI EXPRESS, hence making it 10 in a row.

Now, Riteish Deshmukh is on course for matching this record as well, though the fact must be stated that most of his films have been multi-starrers. Still, ever since the release of HOUSEFULL (2010), he hasn't looked back. As a leading man, he has seen continued successes with F.A.L.T.U., DOUBLE DHAMAAL, TERE NAAL LOVE HO GAYA, HOUSEFULL 2, KYA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM and GRAND MASTI continuing the winning streak, hence making it seven in a row.

With HUMSHAKALS being a comedy, EK VILLAIN a crime thriller and LAI BHAARI an action drama, Riteish further benefits from showing his versatility as an actor in quickest time possible while also achieving an enviable record.
