Controversies• On 30 November 2008, Riteish took Ram Gopal Varma to visit the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, along with his father and then Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Vilasrao Deshmukh, after the 26/11 attacks at the Taj Palace & Tower. This matter was later politicized as both Riteish and Varma were criticized by the media and public of doing an inspection and get the details for their new film on terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Later Riteish gave the clarification by saying, "I've always maintained that he (Ram Gopal Verma) was there because of me. I had taken him there. The media said that my father had invited Ram Gopal Verma (Taj incident) but that's not true. There is not one shot of the two talking to each other and my father didn't even know him...Till date, they have still not been introduced to each other!"Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Gopal Varma Taj controversy
• In 2016, while hosting an awards show, Riteish jokingly said that John Abraham can never learn acting, even in the next 10-15 years.
