Shutting Genelia's pregnancy rumours, Riteish issued a clarification on Instagram stories. He wittily wrote, "I wouldn't mind having 2-3 more but unfortunately this is untrue."
Riteish and Genelia have two sons named Riaan and Rahyl. The couple tied the knot on February 3, 2012. They got married after dating for 9 years. Riteish and Genelia met on the sets of their debut film Tujhe Meri Kasam. After tying the knot, Genelia chose to focus on her family life and did cameos roles in films for quite a few years.
On Kareena Kapoor Khan's chat show, What Women Want, Genelia spoke about quitting acting after marriage. She said, "I had worked so much in all these different industries and we literally had a long distance relationship, even both of us. So I just felt that after marriage, I wanted to prioritize differently, right? And everyone the first thing when I got married said ‘Riteish told you not to work?’ I said no."
After a long break, Genelia returned to acting in 2022 with two films. She featured with Riteish in the Hindi film, titled Mister Mummy. The comedy film failed to draw the audience to theatres. However, when Genelia made her Marathi film debut Ved, people couldn't stop raving. Marking Riteish's directorial debut, the romantic drama was one of the biggest blockbusters in Marathi cinema last year.
