MUMBAI: After 10 long years, Genelia Deshmukh is all set to return on the silver screen, and that too with her first Marathi film ‘Ved’.

Interestingly, the film will be directed by none other than her husband Riteish Deshmukh. Excited about the project, Genelia said, “I’m doing a film after 10 years and it feels pretty amazing to be back doing what I love the most by means of me debuting in the Marathi industry. I’ve been part of many industries but have wanted to do a Marathi film for a while and was waiting for the right one. And this film just seems to be absolutely everything that I wanted. Apart from being cast opposite Riteish, this film will be extremely important because he also debuts as a director, a dream of his that has finally turned into reality and I’m glad I could be part of this journey with him.” Riteish also expressed happiness about his directorial debut. “After being in front of the camera for 20 years, I take a big leap to stand behind it for the first time. Am anxious, nervous, but extremely excited to walk this path,” he shared. ‘Ved’ is touted as a romantic drama.
