Riteish Deshmukh finally admitted to having a relationship with Genelia D'Souza today to a Mumbai newspaper, and added that they would marry next year.
The wedding date has not been fixed yet.
Riteish told the newspaper, "I'm too much in love with her."
The couple first met in 2003 on the sets of their debut film, Tujhe
They apparently fell in love then but have always kept their relationship under wraps because of Riteish's family's political background.
Now, eight years later, the actor has finally confessed his feelings for Genelia.
Interestingly, Riteish's brother Deeraj will also get married next year, in February.
Will it be a double wedding? Let's wait and watch.
