Recently, in a snippet from the show, Ladies vs Gentleman season 2 Genelia revealed that she broke down after a month of her marriage to Riteish and said she couldn't do this anymore. Genelia shared that everyday she would dress up, and that had irked her. In her words:

"When I got married, I thought it was a norm. Every morning, I would come dressed up and I would get irritated, that why do I have to dress up." 

To this, Riteish chimed in and said he would sit at the dining table in boxers while Genelia would come fully dressed up. He said:

"I would sit at the dining table wearing boxers and a T-shirt, while Genelia would be fully decked up in a salwar kameez and jewellery. Maine socha kuch pooja-vooja hoga jo mujhe pata nahi hai."


Genelia then further continued the story and said that after a month, she broke down and said she couldn't put up with all this. Genelia shared: 

“One day, I broke down. I said, ‘I can’t do this.’ He was confused, he was like, ‘What are you doing?’ I was like, ‘I can’t dress up like this every day.’ He said, ‘I am also wondering why you are dressing up like this every day!’”
