Actor Genelia Deshmukh has given us some notable roles in the South as well as in the Bollywood industry. However, soon after getting married to actor Riteish Deshmukh, Genelia Deshmukh was not seen doing many movies. People thought that Riteish might have told her to quit acting but Genelia clarified earlier that there’s no such thing. During an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Genelia spoke about the same, saying she is enjoying both phases of her life.
Genelia on Riteish Deshmukh making her quit acting
When asked if people still say that Riteish made her quit acting, Genelia told us, “People say what they want to say but the truth of the matter is that I decided. To date like people say ‘Why don’t you do so much more work?’ I don’t feel I can do so much work but I feel I still enjoy that whole part of being with my kids. I want to do that, I want to do this, I’ll choose when I want to do what. And the good part is that no one looks for validation like I have to be part of this banner. I have to prepare, I have to be part of a story that impressed me the day I read the script.”
Genelia and Ritesh got married on February 3, 2012, and they share two sons Riaan and Rahyl. Before marriage, the two worked together in Tujhe Meri Kasam, Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya and Masti. However, in 2022, they came together onscreen with Mister Mummy and then they were seen in Ved.
