Earlier this month, Shah Rukh Khan thanked Riteish after he agreed to reschedule the release date of Mauli, to avoid clash with superstar's upcoming film Zero. SRK wrote: "Riteish Deshmukh, jab chota bhai bahut bada ho jaata hai. Thank you, baby for the love, respect and largest of heart you showed me today. Grateful. I am so happy to have 'asked' something of a friend who kept my self-respect higher than his own need."
@Riteishd jab chota bhai bahut bada ho jaata hai. Thank you baby for the love respect and largesse of heart you showed me today. Grateful. Touched. I am so happy to have 'asked' something of a friend who kept my self-respect higher than his own need.
