He later starred in successful films such as Heyy Babyy, Dhamaal, House Full, Double Dhamaal, Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya, Housefull 2 and Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum .
Deshmukh began his film career with the 2003 romace, Tujhe Meri Kasam opposite Genelia D'Souza. Though the film bombed at the box office, the lead pair's performances were acclaimed. He later appeared in Out of Control in the same year, which didn't create magic financially either. His third film, Masti which was a comic thriller, managed to perform extremely well at the box office and critically worldwide. He gained fame after his performance in Masti, which earned him 2 awards. He then appeared Bardaasht andNaach. His first successful lead role was in the sex-comedy Kyaa Kool Hai Hum with Tusshar Kapoor. The film was panned by critics, though loved by public, and was a moderate success at the box office.
In 2007, he was first seen in a guest appearance in Namastey London and then in the multi-starrer action film Cash which was a box office failure. Later that year, he appeared in Sajid Khan's directorial debut Heyy Babyy, co-starring Akshay Kumar and Fardeen Khan, which was a huge hit and is his most commercially successful film to date. He also appeared in the comedy film Dhamaal which was also a semi hit.
In 2009, his first release was Aladin, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Jacqueline Fernandez. Including the multi-starcast, Aladin still flopped worldwide.

In 2010, he once again worked with Sajid Khan on the comedy Housefull along with Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, Arjun Rampal and Jiah Khan. The film received negative response from critics, though striked as a Blockbuster commercially. His first release of 2011 was F.A.L.T.U, in which he played the role of Bajirao, a fake college principal. His second release of the year was comic sequel Double Dhamaal. Both the films were moderately successful.
In 2012, he firstly appeared in Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya in which he is paired opposite his real wife Genelia D'Souza. The film managed to do fairly well at the box office. He then starred in another sequel, Housefull 2 which released on 6 April 2012 and was a huge success like its predecessor. His last release of the year and also his latest film, was sequelKyaa Super Kool Hain Hum, which released on 27th July 2012, and received positive to mixed reviews from critics and praised Riteish's act, the film proved to be a super hit at the box office .
Deshmukh is currently working on another sequel to the 2004 hit, Masti, and titled Grand Masti which was scheduled to begin filming within the first week of August 2012, however, due to Riteish's father Vilasrao Deshmukh's critical health, the director Indra Kumar delayed the shooting, and the filming is now expected to start on 9th September 2012.

As a child actor, Dutt appeared in the 1972 film Reshma Aur Shera, which starred his father; he appears briefly as a qawali singer. Dutt made his Bollywood movie debut with Rocky in 1981. His mother passed away three days before the film's premiere. He went on to star in Vidhaata, the highest grossing Hindi film of 1982. In 1985 he shot for his first film in three years with Jaan ki baazi over the rest of the 1980s, Dutt appeared in successful films such as Main Awara Hoon (1983), Jeeva (1986), Mera Haque (1986), Immandaar,Inaam Dus Hazaar (1987), Jeete Hain Shaan Se (1987), Mardon Wali Baat (1988), Ilaaka (1989), Hum Bhi Insaan Hain (1989), Kanoon Apna Apna (1989), and Taaqatwar (1989)
The 1986 film Naam was Dutt's first major critical success, earning praise for his sensitive portrayal of lead character Vicky Kapoor. He also received critical acclaim for his performances in Mahesh Bhatt's Kabzaa and J. P. Dutta's 1989 Hathyar. His successes continued in the early 1990s, with films that include Tejaa,khatarnak, Thanedaar,Zahreelay, Khoon Ka Karz,Yalgaar, Gumrah, Sahibaan, Kroadh and Aatish: Feel the Fire. He went on to star in some of the most era-defining Indian films of the 1990s such as Sadak, Saajan (for which he was nominated for the Filmfare Best Actor Award) and Khal Nayak, for which he earned his second Filmfare Best Actor Award nomination. Three weeks before its release, however, in April 1993, he was arrested, charged with involvement in the 1993 Mumbai bombings.
Dutt was imprisoned for most of the next four years, while films he had worked in continued to appear from time to time. Finally released on bail in late 1997, he returned to the screen in director Ram Gopal Verma's now cult film Daud, but despite the movie taking in a phenomenal opening the film crashed and was labelled a flop by critics. He then played a supporting role in the 1998 hit Dushman.
1999 was seen as Sanjay's comeback year as he started the year off by starring in the Mahesh Bhatt directed hit Kartoos along with Khoobsurat, Daag: The Fire, Haseena Maan Jayegi and, most importantly, the Award winning Vaastav: The Reality, for which he won his first Filmfare Best Actor Award. His role in 2000's Mission Kashmir won him critical acclaim and a number of awards and nominations, as did his subsequent performance in Kurukshetra. As the decade went on, he continued to play important roles in popular and critical successes such as Jodi No.1 (2001), Pitaah, Kaante (2002) and the National Award-winning blockbuster Munna Bhai M.B.B.S., which also garnered him several awards. Later successes came with Musafir (2004), Plan (2004), Parineeta (2005) and Dus. He also won critical acclaim for his perfomences in Shabd and Zinda
The blockbuster sequel Lage Raho Munna Bhai released in late 2006, coinciding with the start of the Mumbai bombing's trial where the nation became transfixed with Dutt's court ongoings which saw him found not guilty of terrorism related acts but jailed on two occasions between 2006-2007 for short periods, as he was found guilty under the possesion of arms act despite this he continued appearing in successes like, Dhamaal (2007), Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007), and All The Best: Fun Begins (2009), Double Dhamaal (2011) and most recently Agneepath which earned him major critical acclaim once again.
In 2006 news channel NDTV named him Indian of the Year.In 2007 he received an award from the prime minister Manmohan Singh for his work in the Munna bhaiseries.. In January 2008,Indian film institute Filmfare listed 12 movies featuring Dutt in its top 100 grossing movies of all time list.

He finished his schooling from St. Mary's School. He is a graduate of Mithibai College in Mumbai. After his polytechnic diploma course, he joined the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower and worked there as a waiter and room service staff. Thereafter, he joined his mother to run their ancestral bakery shop between Novelty and Apsara Cinema in South Mumbai.
At the same time he established an Uncle Chips franchise in Dadar which ran until 1986 before shutting down owing to a loss.
Irani turned to photography in 1987 and continued until 1989. He is a professional photographer.
Irani began his acting career in theatre and moved to film in 2000 at the age of 41 with a role in Josh. Irani gained attention for his role in the 2003 comedy Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.

Amitabh Bachchan as Genius
Amitabh Harivansh Bachchan
11 October 1942
Allahabad, United Provinces,
|Residence||Prateeksha, Mumbai,Maharashtra, India|
|Occupation||Actor, producer, singer, television presenter|
|Spouse||Jaya Bhaduri (1973–present)|
Amitabh Bachchan ([əmɪtaːbʱ bəttʃən] ( listen), born Amitabh Harivansh Bachchan on 11 October 1942) is an Indian film actor. He first gained popularity in the early 1970s as the "angry young man" of Hindi cinema, and has since appeared in over 180 Indian films in a career spanning more than four decades. Bachchan is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential actors in the history ofIndian cinema.
Bachchan has won numerous major awards in his career, including three National Film Awards as Best Actor, and fourteen Filmfare Awards. He is the most-nominated performer in any major acting category at Filmfare, with 37 nominations overall. In addition to acting, Bachchan has worked as a playback singer, film producer and television presenter. He also had a stint in politics in the 1980s. He has received both the Padma Shri and the Padma Bhushan civilian awards from the Indian government.
Bachchan was born in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, in north central India. His father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, was a Hindi poet and his mother, Teji Bachchan, was a Sikh fromFaisalabad (now in Pakistan). Bachchan was initially named Inquilaab, inspired from the phrase made famous during the Indian independence struggle, Inquilab Zindabad, which means "long live revolution". However, at the suggestion of fellow poet Sumitranandan Pant, Harivansh Rai changed the name to Amitabh which means, "the light that would never go off." Though his surname was Shrivastava, his father had adopted the pen-name Bachchan (meaning "child-like" in colloquial Hindi), under which he published all his works. It is with this last name that Amitabh debuted in films, and, for all public purposes, it has become the surname of all members of his family. Bachchan's father died in 2003 and his mother in 2007.
Amitabh is the elder of Harivansh Rai Bachchan's two sons, the second being Ajitabh. His mother had a keen interest in theatre and had been offered a role in a film, but preferred her domestic duties. She had some degree of influence in Bachchan's choice of career because she always insisted that he should take the centre stage.
