Genelia Deshmukh’s entry into the movie industry was like a breeze of fresh air. What she brought to the cinema was a dose of cuteness and youthfulness. She started off as a model and an actress in South movies and won acclaim with movies like the romantic film Bommarillu. However, a turning point in her career was when she delivered a brilliant performance in the rom-com Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na.
When it comes to her personal life, her love story is like a fairy-tale. The actress met her current husband, Ritesh Deshmukh, on the sets of the 2003 movie Tujhe Meri Kasam, and the rest is history. Talking about her experience working on sets with Ritesh for the first time, Genelia told the Times of India, “The minute I spoke to him, I realised he was a nice person. On the set, Riteish binds people. I didn’t know anything about films then, but he made it look so easy. ” In an interview with Ritesh Deshmukh for the Times of India, he said, “She is my flag-bearer. I draw unconditional support and love from her. Genelia’s love holds me together, and to understand her love is something else. It is amazing.”
Genelia and Ritesh fell in love when the actress was only 16 and believed that she had grown up with him. After nine years of courtship, they decided to tie the knot after winning the approval of their respective families. They tied the knot on February 3, 2012. After two years of marital bliss, Genelia and Ritesh were blessed with their son, Riaan Deshmukh. Two years after that, they welcomed their second baby boy, Rahyl Deshmukh. Genelia frequently posts photos of her sons and husband on her Instagram account. The couple often share reels on their social media handles that are a must-watch as they dish out couple goals.
