Mumbai: Bollywood couple Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza recalled the early years of their relationship and told how they still keep the old gifts they gave each other. Ritesh and Genelia met on the sets of the 2002 film ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’. They dated for almost 9 years, before tying the knot on February 3, 2012.

Talking about the first gift they gave each other, Riteish said, ‘He still has that gift. I gave her a rose, which Genelia has kept in a book. It’s been 20 years and we still have it.

He further said, ‘When we were dating, there was no such thing as video calls and calling and messaging during outdoor shoots was very expensive. I was in New York for 30 days and she was doing mostly South Industry films, so we decided to write letters to each other every day. We wrote letters to each other for 30 days, which he still has.

Recalling a wedding sequence from his film ‘Masti’, Riteish said, ‘There was a wedding sequence where we both dressed up as bride and groom, so we went to the vanity and clicked some pictures because we didn’t have to. Knew that we would be able to get married sometime in real life. I still remember the time when I wore the mangalsutra around Genelia’s neck, it seemed like a dream. Ritesh and Genelia came on the sets of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ for the promotion of their film ‘Ved’. ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ airs on Sony Entertainment Television.
