Genelia D’Souza has kept tight-lipped about her marriage plans, but her beau Riteish Deshmukh has confirmed in a media report that they have decided to get married early next year. And filmmaker Karan Johar, a close friend of the two, is “thrilled to bits”.
“Am thrilled to bits and excited about one of my closest friends upcoming wedding!!! @Riteishd is a truly special guy and he and @geneliad make an absolutely wonderful couple!!! Big love to them!!!!” Johar posted on his Twitter page Friday.
In response to the filmmaker’s message, Riteish wrote: “@kjohar25 loveeeeeee youuuuuu.”
Riteish, 32, and Genelia’s love story began on the sets of their Bollywood debut, “Tujhe Meri Kasam” in 2003.
Neither of them ever publicly acknowledged their relationship, but Riteish, son of politician Vilasrao Deshmukh, finally admitted in a recent media report that they will seal their eight-year-old relationship with a wedding in 2012.
The couple was also seen in “Masti” in 2004, and they have now teamed up for a film “Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya”.
