After being labelled as a 'wooden' entry into Bollywood, Ritesh Deshmukh is suddenly hitting the right notes with his films and is ready to woo the audiences with his next release "Bluffmaster" where he appears as a petty thief.

He has no problems with his 'comic image' and prefers to work in multistarrers because he thinks he cannot do justice to solo hero.

In "Bluffmaster" he will be seen dancing on a Persian song - "Boro boro" sung by Swedish singer Arash.

Excerpts:

Q: After Tusshar Kapoor, have you found another cool partner in Abhishek Bachchan in "Bluffmaster"?
A: Hey, I never thought of it that way. But who knows after "Bluffmaster", Abhishek and I may become the new hit pair the way Tusshar and I came to be known as one after "Kyaa Kool Hai Hum".

Q: If Abhishek is the bluffmaster, where do you fit in?
A: Obviously BM ("Bluffmaster") is primarily about a person who bluffs people, and Abhishek plays that person who has mastered the act. He leads two lives - one with his girlfriend (Priyanka Chopra) and the other where he goes about conning people.

In the course of his dual life, he meets a petty thief (that's me), with whom he develops a sort of teacher-student kind of relationship.

Q: Do we expect another comedy with this film?
A: I don't see BM as a comedy. Actually this is the first time that I am finding it difficult to pinpoint what kind of film it is. The film has every element that a good entertainer needs to have.

Q: But your presence in any film is now associated with comedy?
A: I'm happy if my presence brings a smile. I have no problems about being tagged with a comic image. Eventually if I'm given films to prove otherwise I'll do justice to that too. There are directors like Ram Gopal Varma who see me in a different light - he gave me a serious role in "Naach" and in "Darna Zaroori Hai" the track is anything but funny.

Having said that, my body language in BM is slightly different from what I've done before. It's about a young chap who has too much enthusiasm about things he knows too much.

Q: Priyanka Chopra says that Abhishek was the king of pranks on the sets, and that you and Rohan Sippy (director) were his sidekicks. Comment.
A: Oh, then she has yet to come across Ajay (Ajay Devgan), whose pranks can scare the hell out of people. Abhishek is more into light-hearted banter and teasing.

Q: And Rohan, your director?
A: Rohan is not a hard taskmaster. But as a director he's clear, quite contemporary in thoughts and approach that will be evident from his film, music and characters. He's open to suggestions, but never at the cost of the film.

Q: After dancing to a British track in "Kyaa Kool Hai Hum", you'll be doing the same in "Bluffmaster".
A: This one is a Persian song - "Boro boro" by Swedish singer, Arash. I didn't understand a word he was saying or singing, but it was a catchy tune. The way the song is placed in the film is quite interesting as one thing leads to another in that situation.

A couple of lines are sung in Hindi and I remember saying why bother to do that when it sounds cooler the way it is.

Q: You also met with an accident on the sets. How did that happen?
A: Don't remind me of that... We were shooting for dance bar sequence, when the guy opposite missed his beat and I got the full blast of the steel rod that he swung in my direction. I now know what it feels like to have a steel rod hit you right under your jaw.

I was back to shooting after four stitches and two days of non-action. And the best part was to hide the band-aid on my right profile. So we shot an entire scene with just my left profile to the camera.

Q: Don't you feel the number of multistarrers that you are doing will affect your chances as a solo hero?
A: The multistarrers that I've worked in have done better than my two solo films ("Out Of Control" and "Tujhe Meri Kasam") that make me believe that multistarrers suit me as an actor.

Besides, I'm doing the best I can with whatever offers I get, and I've got a few from directors like Indra Kumar, David Dhawan, Rajkumar Santoshi.

I do get offers to do solo hero films, but I am not dying to do them because I feel I won't be able to do justice to them at this age and stage of my career.
