In the same interview, Genelia also opened up on her fight with COVID-19. The actress said that she thinks it was very tough for her kids and her hubby, Riteish. She shared that it was shocking when one fine day you are suddenly taken off and put into isolation and you don’t have any time for preparation. Genelia further added, "I was very surprised because we had gone to a very safe place in Latur. I realised that you have to as safe as you can but you can get it anywhere. I was totally asymptomatic which was a good thing. Riteish took over and he was great with the kids. My parents were a big help. I had my family and friends calling me every hour, literally, that really matters because isolation can be a very difficult part."
Today (December 17, 2020, on Riteish's birthday, Genelia penned a lovely birthday note for him. She posted a beautiful video of some of the best moments of their life together. Alongside it, she wrote, "There are times in life you search and you search and you search, for someone perfect. And sometimes you just never really find that person I didn’t search when I met you but I was in love with the idea of having a guy like you. And then the real deal happened, You happened to me. We have gone through all our phases in life together, From being clueless teenagers to husband and wife to parents and it’s all been beautiful but the best part of my life will always be YOU and that doesn’t change, no matter how much time goes by. So I don’t believe we had everything perfect, I just believe we stuck with our imperfections, with our weirdness, with our flaws and found something so imperfectly perfect. I Love You @riteishd. Happy birthday Navra."
Coming back to their love story, in an interview with The Times of India, Riteish and Genelia had talked about their first meeting. He had shared, "I was flying to Hyderabad for the test shoot of Tujhe Meri Kasam and I was told that the girl opposite me would be there. I walked out of the airport and met Genelia’s mom. Then I saw this tall girl looking in the opposite direction, completely ignoring me. I was like, ‘Why is she behaving like this?’" To which Genelia had interrupted and had said, "I did say, ‘Hi!’ I’d found out two days before that he was the Chief Minister’s son so I assumed he was a spoilt brat, a typical politician’s son, so I thought I’d give him attitude before he did! (laughs) Otherwise, I am shy and reserved by nature." (Don't Miss: Kangana Ranaut's Candid Dancing Photographs From Her Brother's Mehendi Ceremony Exudes Her Happiness)
