Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza have never spoken about their prem kahani until they decided to tie the knot. Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza tied the knot on February 4 2012 after dating for almost a decade. Though there was a lot of speculation when the duo were going out, nothing was every confirmed by either of them. They always remained tight lipped about their relationship. When asked why didn’t they go public with their relationship, they said that they are private people and didn’t want to talk about it until they had something substantial to tell people and also to avoid unnecessary media speculation. Well all we can say is, fair enough.
Their love story started when Ritesh flew to Hyderabad to give a test shoot for the film Tujhe Meri Kasam. Initially Genilia didn’t like him because when she learnt that he was the chief minsters’ son, she assumed that he would be a spoilt brat. It was when they started shooting that she got to know what a nice and warm person he was. They started working as strangers and then friendship evolved. Soon enough they were best of friends off sets. He would discuss architecture with her while she would discuss college and exams with him! That’s how simple and uncomplicated their relationship was. According to them, they didn’t realize when love happened. After he came back from the Hyderabad schedule, he started missing her, Ritesh wondered whether it was right to call her or not. That was his dilemma. Genelia on the other hand was completely floored by Riteish’s personality. Falling in love was gradual. So they have evolved from being friends to best friends to life partners now.
Cute and typical college like, their romance is something we hope lasts for a lifetime!
