Actor Ritesh Deshmukh took to his Instagram handle to pen an emotional note on the auspicious occasion of his late father, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh’s 77th birth anniversary. Vilasrao Deshmukh was a senior Congress leader who succumbed to cancer in 2012 at the age of 67. The whole nation was shook by the demise of the politician.
In one of the three pictures, we can see Ritesh and Genelia’s kids, Riaan and Rahyl, both clad in blue kurtas, gazing at a garlanded photo of their grandfather who appears to be all smiles in the picture, as if spending time with him. The second picture is of the garlanded picture of the former senior Congress leader, alongside a candle, and the third picture shows both the kids, standing with their hands joined in front of the picture, as if offering prayers to their grandfather and at the same time also wishing for the peace of his soul.
Ritesh leaves no stone unturned in expressing his deepest emotions, regarding his father, time and again wishing that he was alive and how much he misses him. ‘I want to hug you tight, wish you happy birthday, touch your feet and be blessed. I want to see you laugh, pat my back by and say I am always there. I want to see you play, share a joke, carry your grand kids and tell them a story,’ an excerpt of his note reads. He concludes his note by writing, “Happy Birthday Pappa – I miss you!!!”
