‘Ziddi Dil Maane Na’ actor Aditya Deshmukh loves Marathi showbiz content and would always love to be a part of it. “I did shows like ‘Ambat Goad’ on Star Pravah, ‘Asmita’ on Zee Marathi. My last one was ‘Radha Prem Rangi Rangali’ in which I played a very famous character called Rakesh Panse. He was a negative role,” he shared. “My last film in Marathi was with Swapnil Joshi called “Mogra Phulaalaa” which is streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Previous films include “Yaaron Ki Yaari”, political film “Mee” , ‘Bandh Nylon Che’ in which Subodh Bhave and Mahesh Manjrekar were my co-stars. I played a small part in it, but it was an important character,” he said. He would love to undertake more Marathi projects. “That’s if I have great plans. I would always like to be part of the Marathi industry because it’s my mother tongue. I’m just waiting for the right opportunity.
If a script comes my way, I would love to do it,” Aditya said. He sees a difference between a Marathi project and a Hindi TV drama. “It’s the content. The Marathi industry is content driven. The Hindi industry is content and processing driven. But the content of Marathi industry is quite amazing. So whatever they’re thinking, whatever their thought process is, it’s very clear. They come up with the idea and put it on the table,” said the actor, who is fluent in English, Hindi and Marathi. He has some favorites in Marathi showbiz. “There are two actors that I really respect. One is Subodh Bhave. I admire him a lot and like the kind of subjects he chooses. He has done many biographies and one day I would also like to have the opportunity to play roles like the ones he does,” he said. “Another versatile actor is Ashok Saraf ji. He created a mark, an impression on me for having acted in all the fabulous films. I really admire him. In our industry we call him Ashok Mama because he has this position, he has this title which is very important. So I consider him my inspiration. I would love to work with him one day,” he added.
