Reacting to reports that actor Ritesh Deshmukh, son of former Maharashtra chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, is likely to go his late father's way and join politics, actor-politician Raj Babbar said it is a well thought-out decision. Hema Malini too supports the idea saying he will do a good job.

This is what people have to say about Ritesh's plan to join politics:

Raj Babbar: I think it is a very well-thought out and sensible decision. Ritesh is born in a family where politics is a way of life. His father was highly respected and one of the most powerful and influential political figures of Maharashtra. So politics is nothing new to Ritesh. He has grown up with it and his father's constituency and community are completely with him.

Also, being a celebrity in his own field of cinema, Ritesh already has a connectivity with the people. Most important of all, I've observed how Riteish has conducted himself after his father's untimely death. The boy has a natural and sincere attachment to the people who loved his father. They are now willing to transfer that love to the son.

Hema Malini: Why not? Ritesh is very entertaining and funny on the screen. I am sure he can utilise his natural skills to be a good politician. Besides that, he has his father's example to follow. He can't go wrong.

Shatrughan Sinha: Knowing Ritesh and his father, I feel he could make a success out of his career in politics. And why not? Politics is in Riteish's genes. His father was very close to me. In fact, just as people say A.R. Antulay is the Dilip Kumar of politics, it was said Vilasrao Deshmukh was the Shatrughan Sinha of politics. He called me Shatrubhai from the time when he was studying law.

I've seen Ritesh grow and I feel today he's ready to step into his father's arena. So what if actors like Rajesh Khanna have not been so successful in politics? What about Mr. Sunil Dutt whose conduct in politics was exemplary?

Mr. Amitabh Bachchan came into politics for emotional reasons. Today, I feel he is our best candidate to be the President of India.
