Riteish Deshmukh and got married on February 4 after dating for almost a decade. In a candid chat, Ritz and Genie talk about their love story. Here’s a flashback into the prem kahani that has never been told.
The first meeting Riteish was flying to Hyderabad for the test shoot of Tujhe Meri Kasam and he was told that the girl opposite him would be there. He walked out of the airport and met Genelia’s mom. Then he saw this tall girl looking in the opposite direction, completely ignoring him.
They started working as strangers, then began understanding each other. Off the sets they soon became best friends.They would discuss architecture with her while she would discuss college and exams with him. The beauty of a relationship is when you get used to a person; it is not sudden. It is just a process, and you don’t realise when love happens. After he came back from the Hyderabad schedule, He started missing her. He wondered whether it was right to call her or not. That dilemma lasted for a few days. Genelia was completely floored by Riteish’s personality. He think guys like him are rare in today’s world. He love listening to him and enjoy his views. Falling in love was gradual. Every stage was played out very correctly — be it friends, be it best friends or life partners.
After they got married every decision that’s been made has been hers, but Genelia has always been gracious enough to discuss it with him. So whether she wants to work in films or not is up to her. Whatever she decides is okay with him. Ritiesh has always told her that it is his decision whether he wants to work after marriage or not. Of course, he will prioritise his work differently post marriage. He doesn’t want to be part of the rat race, but he do want to be part of something good.
It was day when they both celeberated Genelia’s birthday recently and it was like Genelia Deshmukh celebrated her birthday on Friday night, and Riteish wished her on Instagram with a sweet message. And at her birthday dinner that night, BFF Mushtaq Shiekh took a bunch of photos of them while Genelia was cutting her cake, and it’s so sweet how they’re looking at each other.
