Of the couples of the recent era, a couple which can be appropriately termed as a peppy and fizzy couple are Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia. One of the cutest couple of the Bollywood industry, they complement each other exceptionally which also is a true evidence of their love.


The couple debuted in the film “Tujhe Meri Kasam” 15 years ago. This was during the time when Bilasrao Deshmukh was the Chief minister of Maharashtra, who is the father of Riteish.

I'm the happiest in your company… #majormissing❤️

As one may expect, Genelia was in awe of Riteish initially during the shoot of the movie. In fact, she did not even talk to him for the first 2 days of the shoot as she was in awe of him and his father’s stature.

Riteish recently tweeted his gratitude to the Director Vijaya Bhaskar Ji – “I love you Sir, producer Shri Ramoji Rao Sir. # Respect. CinematographerKabir Lal Sir – who recommended me. # 15 yearsof Tujhe Meri Kasam” He also added how this changed his life forever and for the better –

“3rd Jan 2003 – 15 years ago.

#TujheMeriKasam released

Debut film – life changed.

#15years of Tujhe meri kasam “

It sounds strange that the two were supposedly playing a couple on camera without speaking to each other. This, though did not continue for long and the first thing that Genelia asked Riteish was, “where is your security ? “ to which he had replied “I don’t have any.”

From this introduction to building a beautifully romantic love story in real life, depicted quite on the reel life as well, the couple eventually ended up getting hooked on to each other and tying the knot of marriage in 2012.

May the lovely couple have reasons to keep talking to each other all their lives.
