There has been widespread buzz in Bollywood circles that actress Genelia D’Souza is likely to marry actor Riteish Deshmukh, who is the son of the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra and presently the Union Minister. Genelia and Riteish acted together in the film “Tujhe Meri Kasam” in 2003 and love is said to have been brewing between them since then.
However, Genelia D’Souza denied that she has any special relationship with Riteish and they are just good friends. She issued a press statement stating, “To set the record straight, I am not getting married to anyone. I have always maintained that my personal life is not something I would like to discuss. But this time since it was something that would affect my family, I decided to take a stand. My films and my brands are my priority as of now and I’d like to keep it that way. And if I do decide to settle down, you will hear it from me when as and when it happens.”
Genelia is looking forward to the release of “Chance Pe Dance” on January 15 where she is paired with Shahid Kapoor. This film is directed by Ken Ghosh.
