And surprisingly the outfits that weren’t just made for himself, but also for his two sons Riaan Deshmukh and Rahyl Deshmukh, turned out to be wonderful creations.
Sharing how he got new kurtas made for himself and his kids from the saree, Riteish posted a short clip on his social media handle.
The video opens with his mom holding the saree from one end and waving it to cover the whole screen. Next, as soon as the saree settles down, Riteish and the kids are seen posing together, clad in the light-blue kurta made from the same saree.
The video also the song ‘Happy Diwali’ playing in the background.
Riteish captioned the video, “Maa ki purani saree, baccho ke liye Diwali ke naye kapde (Mother’s old saree, new kids for the kids) . Happy Diwali …. shot by Baiko @geneliad – Song credit @sujoy_g #Recycle.”
