When nobody recognised Riteish

When nobody recognised Riteish

And one of the most unusual ones was worn by Riteish Deshmukh when he was dressed as a typical Chinese man called Lee. Well, sources tell us quite an amusing incident behind the costume.

Apparently Riteish’s Chinese avatar styling and make up was so perfect and authentic, that when he stepped onto the sets for the scenes shot in Hong Kong, not a soul recognised him.

There were other Chinese actors from Hong Kong as extras on the set, and the entire crew took Riteish to be one of them. And Riteish , who never lets an opportunity to play pranks on others, went along with it and did not tell anyone he was on sets. He, in fact, went to the Chinese extras and started talking to them. So it was all the more a reason for one to think Riteish was a part of the group.

It was only when director Indra Kumar, who knew it was Riteish, called him for the scenes that the crew realised he was right there with them. The entire crew present burst out laughing at their folly and proceeded to film the scenes.
