Sharing the video, the actress wife had penned a beautiful note on their 10th wedding anniversary that could be read as:

"Dearest @riteishd, 10years is definitely a milestone and knowing me, today would be just the 2 of us leaving town, celebrating, dancing, dining and endless hugs.But with tight schedules and work taking the better of us, I realise, what is the true meaning of celebrating-You directing for the first time and I get to be part of it, me acting after 10 years and you are part of it and together we put our sweat and blood and life into something we chose together and if this isn’t a celebration then what else is? We’ve been partners in love, parenting parents, business partners and Thank God for #Vedd where we get to be partners who help each other, build dreams and try and fulfill it together. I will celebrate you everyday and ya the endless hugs will still stay on - you definitely can’t escape that part. Happy Anniversary."

In an old interview with DNA, Genelia Deshmukh and Riteish Deshmukh had spoken about their life after becoming husband and wife and had also revealed their take on marriage. According to them, taking the romance out of a relationship makes it dull. Genelia had said:

"It can, if you choose to let it be. Like Riteish says 'Every relationship has to be worked on'. Marriage is no different." 


Well, we absolutely adore Riteish and Genelia, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness!
