Bollywood’s power couple Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh yesterday took to social media to announce something big.
Genelia is all set to make her Marathi film debut. Her husband and Bollywood star Riteish is all set to don the Director’s Hat for the film. The film has been titled as Vedd, which means madness.
Sharing a glimpse of shoot through a video on Instagram, Genelia wrote – ‘Have been blessed to be part of movies in so many languages and receive love and respect from all..
Being born in Maharashtra, my heart yearned to do a film in Marathi for years and was hoping there would be a script where I could just say this is it..
And then this happened – My first Marathi film, me coming back to acting after 10 long years and being part of a dream where my husband Riteish Deshmukh directs for the first time and I get to share space with a beautiful Co- Actor Jiya Shankar who gets introduced under our production house MFC .. I would humbly request loads of blessings from each one of you, because films are always a journey and we would love if you could be on this journey with us.. वेड (Madness).’
Sharing the posters of the film, Riteish wrote – ‘After being in front of the camera for 20 years, I take a big leap to stand behind it for the first time. As I direct my first marathi film, i humbly ask you all for your good wishes and blessings. Be a part of this journey, be a part of this madness. वेड (Madness).’
The film Vedd also marks the Marathi film debut of TV and Film actress Jiya Shankar. Jiya was recently seen in SAB TV’s show ‘Kaatelal & Sons’. She will be playing a key role alongside Genelia in the film.
‘I’m so happy and proud to share the poster for my first marathi film VEDD (madness). Starting my first with the bests @riteishd and @geneliad ! These two absolutely talented and genuine sweethearts i cant tell you ! And a musical by @ajayatulofficial is going to be absolutely magical ! 🙌🏻
