First impression isn’t always the last impression and we must not always judge a book by its cover, is what we have learnt from the love story of Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia Deshmukh. A journey which started with a wrong first impression on the girl’s side and the boy thinking some other girl to be his heroine, that’s how Riteish and Genelia began their journey. As Riteish says to Genelia, ‘Pyaar Dosti Hai, Agar Wo Meri Sabse Achi Dost Nahi Ban Sakti, Toh Main Usse Kabhi Pyaar Kar Hi Nahi Sakta’ is the foundation of their relationship and marriage.

Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia Deshmukh had started their journey in the Hindi film industry together with the film, Tujhe Meri Kasam and it was not only a beginning of their successful careers but also a beautiful start of their personal lives. Riteish takes immense pride in being Genelia’s husband and she too, is proud of her husband’s achievements. On The Kapil Sharma Show, Riteish had said that he is proud to be known as Genelia’s husband. Reciprocating his expression of love, Genelia had posted the clip on her IG handle and captioned it as “You make me so proud @Riteishd. In a world where a woman has to keep fighting to be treated as an equal, I’m treated as one without even asking… I need to let you know I’m the proudest to be @Riteish’s Baiko #mutualrespect #partnersforlife #dontmakemenlikehimanymore.”
Since it was for the first time that Riteish Deshmukh had come on The Kapil Sharma Show with his baiko, Genelia Deshmukh, the couple had spilt beans on their relationship. Recalling when he wanted to pull off a prank on Genelia during their dating days and how it went wrong, Riteish said that once he had texted her that they should call off their relationship. Genelia didn’t get his April Fool's Day prank and took it so seriously that Riteish had vowed never to joke about such matters. Riteish revealed that he calls Genelia, Genee and Genzie, and she calls him Dolu.
During the same episode, Riteish Deshmukh had also recalled an incident when he was called as ‘Genelia’s husband’ and revealing that his ego was slightly hurt, he had elaborated, “Hum log Bangalore mein Celebrity Cricket League khel rahe, South ki ek team thi jahan par do log khusar-pusar kar rahe the. Sir, ‘Genelia’s husband’? To mera ego thoda hurt hogaya aur main bola, ‘Here I am Genelia’s husband, in Maharashtra she’s Riteish’s wife’. Toh voh mujhe kya bolta hai, ‘Sir, Riteish’s wife in one state but you Genelia’s husband in Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu…” leaving everyone in splits.
