After eight years of just being good friends, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza who flagged off their careers together with Tujhe Meri Kasam (2003), will make their relationship official with a four-day wedding on February 4.
The celebrations will kick off with a mehndi ceremony, followed by the sangeet, pheras and a reception over the next three days, hosted at two suburban five-star hotels.
Tusshar Kapoor, who is a friend of both the bride and groom, is really excited about the first Bollywood wedding of the year. Since he has been busy shooting Samir Karnik’s rom-com Char Din Ki Chandni (CDKC) in Kinsar, a small village outside Jodhpur in Rajasthan that revolves around a four-day wedding too, he’s got a dress rehearsal of sorts.
In the movie that is scheduled to enter the theatres on March 9, Tusshar’s sister is getting married.
He uses the opportunity to introduce his Punjabi girlfriend to his parents, who are orthodox, blue-blooded royalty and tries to make her acceptable to them even though she’s not a part of their world.
“There’s a lot of lying, confusion and dramebaazi (drama). Fortunately Riteish and Genelia have not taken any cues from Kulraj (Randhawa) and me, and got their parents’ approval the right way,” laughs Tusshar.
The actor promises a lot of naach-gaana (song and dance) at the Riteish-Genelia wedding.
“The Dirty Picture team will be there along with the Kya SuperKool Hain Hum unit and we are going to rock the shaadi (wedding),” he says.
Quiz the 35-year-old actor on when he plans to tie the knot and he says, “Maybe my CDKC lead to a four-day wedding soon.”
Sure, but for that to happen, he would need a bride. Does he have a girl in mind? Tusshar responds with a chuckle, “Well, at the moment there’s no one, but who knows, real life may imitate my reel one.”
