Deshmukh debuted with K. Vijaya Bhaskar's Tujhe Meri Kasam (2003), but it was not until 2004 that he achieved success, when he appeared in the commercially successful comedy Masti and the critically acclaimed Bardaasht. His work in Masti was nominated for several awards, including the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor category. He later starred in films such as Heyy Babyy, Dhamaal, Rann and House Full.

Deshmukh was born in a Marathi family. He made his debut in 2003 with Tujhe Meri Kasam co-starring Genelia D'souza which performed average at the box office. He then played the lead role in Out of Control. He became a known face after the 2004 comedy Masti, again co-starring Genelia, which established him as an supporting actor. Later, he appeared in a special role in Bardaasht.

He has mainly taken on comic roles and a few serious roles. He has appeared in several comedy films including Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, Malamaal Weekly and Apna Sapna Money Money. He appeared in a supporting role in Bluffmaster! with Abhishek Bachchan in the lead. He was also seen in Ram Gopal Verma's Darna Zaroori Hai.

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 in 2007.

In 2008, he appeared in De Taali, in which his performance was praised, and later in Chamku, both of which failed at the box office.

In 2009, his first release was Aladin, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Jacqueline Fernandez. He then played a supporting role in Ram Gopal Varma's Rann, again co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Paresh Rawal and Rajpal Yadav.
