Bollywood What's Happenin'

Riteish Deshmukh gets a tattoo

It seems like recently married Riteish Deshmukh is following the trend set by other Bollywood actors in love, and has gone and got himself a tattoo.

Though he may have got himself inked, the actor claims it isn’t for real, but for a film he is acting in where he portrays the part of a wacky, wannabe DJ.

Speaking to the press in India, the Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya star said:

“I had no reference to fall back on, so I got the tattoo my hairstylist Vickrant Marathe has on his forearm. Vickrant has been with me for the last four years and has a permanent tattoo of the Mahalakshmi mantra and I told them to get me exactly the same thing.”

When asked why he hasn’t got a real one yet, the actor added:

“To get a tattoo done one needs to be really strong as one has to live with it for the rest of one’s life or not care about it at all. I am in the middle. I think a tattoo really looks cool.”
