After 2014's Lai Bhaari, Riteish Deshmukh returns to Marathi cinema as an action hero in the upcoming Mauli. Produced by his wife, Genelia, Mauli once again aims to show the brawny side of the actor, who has earned bigger success in making us laugh in movies like Masti, Kya Kool Hai Hum and the Housefull series. Save for that psychopathic turn in Ek Villain, Bollywood fans never had much of an opportunity to see how powerful Riteish Deshmukh's punches are, but Lai Bhaari's success proves that he is not bad at it.

Coming back to Mauli, the movie is directed by Aditya Sarpotdar who had also helmed Faster Fene, that was produced by Riteish. Saiyami Kher, who had made her Bollywood debut with the disastrous Mirzya, is the female lead. The full-fledged trailer of Mauli is here and it promises a complete massy flick that we normally associate with the likes of Akshay Kumar or Ajay Devgn.

Riteish plays an unruly cop, who in his own words, is a terror when he takes off the uniform. Considered as a saviour by the villagers, Mauli meets his match when he faces an inimitable foe, played by Jitendra Joshi, better known as Katekar from Sacred Games.
