Riteish Deshmukh is very excited about his next release Banjo. Keeping with the trend, the actor released the first-look poster for the film on Twitter today.

The film marks the Hindi debut of Marathi filmmaker Ravi Jadhav. It is a musical drama and has Deshmukh playing a passionate street musician. Banjo is slated for release in September. 

The poster is in tune with the movie's theme and offers centrestage to the title instrument, a banjo. The poster also announces the release of the much awaited trailer of the movie on May 27. The trailer will see close friend and 'Housefull 3' co-star, Abhishek Bachchan say a dialogue.

After a spate of roles in ensemble films and comedy entertainers, Banjo marks the return of Riteish Deshmukh as solo lead in a film. We can only wish it offers the actor a deserved chance as lead hero.
