The duo had met each other for a film, Tujhe Meri Kasam, but never have they ever thought that they would be spending a lifetime together.

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."
She had further added, "The minute I spoke to him, I realised he was a nice person. On the set, Riteish binds people. I didn’t know anything about films then but he made it look so easy. Also, I found it endearing how he was so respectful of my parents and elders."
Talking about how love had blossomed between the two, Riteish had revealed, "We started working as strangers, then began understanding each other. Off the sets, we soon became best friends. I would discuss architecture with her while she would discuss college and exams with me! The beauty of a relationship is when you get used to a person; it is not sudden. It is just a process, and you don’t realise when love happens. After I came back from the Hyderabad schedule, I started missing her. I wondered whether it was right to call her or not. That dilemma lasted for a few days." (Don't Miss: Debina Bonnerjee Surprises Hubby, Gurmeet Choudhary With A Special Gift On Their Wedding Anniversary)
