Happy Birthday Genelia D’Souza: Five adorable moments of the actress with husband Riteish Deshmukh
It is difficult to not love the fun and cheerful Genelia D’Souza. She stole our hearts as Aditi in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa, and the rest is history. Genelia made her debut in showbiz with the 2003 film Tujhe Meri Kasam opposite her now-husband Riteish Deshmukh. The film was a box-office hit, and Genelia made her way into the Telegu and Tamil film industry as well. In her career, she has remained a much-loved persona among her audience across industries.
Today, the adorable Genelia clocks in another year, as she celebrates her 34th birthday, and we are full of love and admiration for the young star. Apart from her acting chops, another aspect that fans absolutely love about Genelia is her relationship with her husband Riteish. Riteish and Genelia tied the knot on 3rd February 2012, after a courtship that was almost a decade long. This year, the couple celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary. The two have been dishing out major couple goals over the years and their social media posts and comments are proof.
