Genelia and Ritesh Deshmukh came across as any other happy go lucky couple who could be seen teasing each other with tongue-in-cheek humour. The two got married in February after dating each other for really long and seem to be enjoying every bit of it.
Genelia, 25, who is one of the youngest actress to tie the knot was on a well-deserved break ever since her marriage and is now planning to bounce back. “There is no compulsion… I would work on a project only if I want to. And marriage indeed is a priority in this point in time as I can work 365 days a year which I did earlier,” said Genelia. While husband Riteish prompted, “If she does not work, how will I run my house, No that’s true… I’m not joking. Who is going to pay my phone bill if she does not work.” To which Genelia said, “He keeps saying these things but these are all nonsense.”
But on a more serious note, Genelia feels that the trend of married actors being ignored from Bollywood is changing. “It was there for the longest time but now I think actors who are married seem to have more successful careers. So it’s changing but gradually and I am in no hurry,” she said.
Riteish, 33, too shared a bedroom secret here and said, “Pile of scripts on her bedside is much more than on my bedside… so she indeed has more offers and scripts to read than I do,” Genelia laughed and added, “This is because I read your scripts too.”
Though they have come to terms with the little adjustments that one needs to make after marriage but ‘time management’ is still the bone of contention between the two. “One thing that I can’t manage well is time and my wife complains about it,” said Riteish. While Genelia added, “Girls have the knack to multitask and guys don’t. I don’t know about whether it’s about managing time or not multitask. Tell me Riteish what is it? He replied, “We want to concentrate on one thing and don’t mess up ten things at the same time.”
Spouses-to-be Genelia D'souza and Riteish Deshmukh were also present at the screening.
