Actress Genelia Deshmukh has revealed that her husband-actor Riteish Deshmukh had touched her feet 8 times at their wedding. She spoke about the incident as the couple has recently made their appearance on the dance reality show, Super Dancer 4.
The upcoming episode of Super Dancer 4 is based on the wedding theme as Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh will be probably filling the space of Shilpa Shetty.
Genelia, in the promo, told that one performance made her remind of her wedding to Riteish. She told, “Oh my God! Your performance reminded me of my wedding! We may have modernised our weddings and turned them into another party, but, I adore traditional weddings and consider myself fortunate to have attended one. Every ceremony was a blast for me, and I was very emotional during my Bidaai as well, but we all had a great time”.
She added that “Of course, Ritesh had to touch my feet, eight times” and Riteish joking said that “I think the priest knew what I am supposed to do after the wedding. He made me practise it before”. Maharashtrian weddings has this as a part of their tradition.
Genelia and Riteish first met in 2003 on the sets of their movie ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’. Previously, Genelia has admitted that she thought of Riteish as a spoilt brat as he was the chief minister’s son of the state.
Speaking to Bollywood Bubble earlier this year, Genelia said “Honestly, I thought that Riteish is this rich, very connected brat, so I shouldn’t look at him and talk to him, so I didn’t. He was wondering why am I not talking. He was very sweet, so I wanted to talk to him, but I was like, one shouldn’t feel that I am talking to you because you are the chief minister’s son and all of that. But anyway, we started talking and then we never stopped for the next 18 years”.
