Newly-wed actor couple Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza, seem to have their priorities in order — it’s work before pleasure. The couple that got married on Friday was in Vizag just two days later, for a Celebrity Cricket League match between Mumbai Heroes and Bengal Tigers, that they had pre-committed to attend.
Lady luck clearly seemed to be shining bright on Riteish, the vice captain of Mumbai Heroes, as his team defeated Bengal Tigers by six wickets, entering the semi finals set to take place in Chennai on February 11. "Proud to be part of Mumbai Heroes – whaattta win today. We enter the Semis now," tweeted Riteish after the victory.
The team’s ambassadors Genelia —flaunting mehndi and glass bangles—and actor Kangna Ranaut, went berserk cheering for their team from the stands. The two were seen dancing and blowing trumpets.
The organisers too made sure that the match becomes a memorable occasion for the couple. "Of course, we hosted a special party for the couple and ensured that their stay here is comfortable," says an organiser.
The Team’s other brand ambassador, actor Salman Khan, missed the crucial match as he is shooting in Cuba for Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger.
