Even as she basks in doting husband Riteish Deshmukh’s love and cares for their sons, Riaan and Rahyl, Genelia Deshmukh cannot stop the occasional rewind to her film debut. She shared a throwback to her Telugu film Bommarillu which released 10 years ago, revealing that the romantic comedy gave her “acknowledgment, appreciation and most importantly a special place in a lot of homes.”
A few days ago on August 7, Riteish had thrown a small birthday party for his actress wife which saw a few close friends, former co-stars and family in attendance.
Riteish, who will soon appear on screens in the upcoming Banjo, took to his social networking handle to share a few pictures from the intimate bash. We were treated to the sight of the couple looking utterly besotted and thoroughly happily, as their guests sang the birthday song.
The couple who had met and fallen in love on the sets of their debut film, Tujhe Meri Kasam which released in 2003. Riteish had revealed that Genes, as she calls her, was a mere teenager when they started dating (she was 16), while he was in his twenties. He recounts how they have grown up together, having gone from being really childish to having a sense of maturity. When asked about whether she would continue to act in films, he had teased, “Agar yeh kaam nahi karegi toh ghar kaise chalega?”

Like the perfect husband, he clarified that Genelia had always been gracious enough to discuss decisions with him, and that whether she wants to work in films or not is up to her. Genelia herself had informed that she would prioritise her work differently post marriage. While not desiring to be part of the rat race, she would want to be part of something good, she opined. Looking at the happy family picture they make, any film assignments will only happen in the distant future, we predict.
