Movie Talkies8 February 2013

Actor-producer Riteish Deshmukh, who recently formed his own team named Veer Marathi for the CCL championships (Celebrity Cricket League), thanked Salman Khan for suggesting the idea for a Marathi team.


At an event, Riteish said, “I was a part of Mumbai Heroes earlier, but it was Salman who planted the germ of an idea in my head about forming a Marathi team. Following this, I spoke to Sohail Khan and decided to part ways with Mumbai Heroes and form my own team.”


Riteish, who is known for his comic talent, turned producer with the Marathi film Balak Palak, which became a massive hit at the box office.
