With great success comes great responsibility, and that often leaves one with little time for family. Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh nods in approval, but he’s found the perfect formula to walk the tightrope.
When we catch him between breaks at the chat show on all things food, he raves about the marinated chicken Genelia cooks for him. What about his exploits in the kitchen? “I don’t cook, but we go out dining at least twice a week,” he pipes. Riteish is an adventurous foodie and loves to try out different cuisines from across the world—his most recent indulgence has been Peruvian and Ethiopian cuisine.
On a date night, the couple likes to frequent Bombay canteen, Terttulia, Yuuka, Yauatcha and Masala library. On days when he feels like dipping bhakri in zunka (and other Maharashtrian delicacies), Riteish prefers home-cooked fare. One of his favourites, his mom’s signature Mutton dish “is so good, I don’t have words to express,” he quips.
When the two most important women of his life are cooking up a fare, how does he manage a lean frame? “I eat everything, unless I’m required to follow a diet regimen for a certain project,” he says casually. With all that love for food, the Deshmukhs make sure the family eat together at least once every week. Food is a delicious glue, we say!
