Genelia D'souza and Riteish Deshmukh, who have been dating each other for the over seven years have apparently got engaged at a hush hush ceremony at the house of Riteish Deshmukh's father, Maharashtra CM Vilasrao Deshmukh's residence a fortnight ago.

An official engagement was hence the most appropriate thing to do.

Genelia and Riteish apparently went for a low key affair and did not invite any of their friends in Bollywood.

She was recognized for her role in Boys the same year, and later established herself in Telugu cinema by acting in several Telugu films during 2003–2008.

Genelia received her first Filmfare Award in 2006 for her performance in the Telugu romantic film, Bommarillu, which earned her critical acclaim.

Indian film critic Rajeev Masand commented, "The adorable little imp from Jaane Tu…

Ya Jaane Na has turned into a nagging harridan in this film, and how you wish she'd immediately enroll for acting lessons." D'Souza had a major role in 2011, starring as the Muslim warrior princess Arackal Ayesha, in her debut Malayalam film Urumi.

The comedy focuses on three close friends who reunite after three years, but are now married and are being harassed by their wives.

Genelia portrayed the character of one of the wives.

The same year, she made her Tamil debut as the teenage girl Harini in Boys, a story about five teenagers having stereotypical teen-boy fantasies.
