Bollywood actors Riteish Desh Mukh and Genelia D'souza got married at the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai Friday.
Riteish Deshmukh, 33 and Genelia D'Souza, 24, had been dating each other for eight years, ever since they worked together for their debut movie Tujhe Meri Kasam in 2003.
Interestingly, the couple's wedding marks the beginning of the celebrity weddings expected to happen this year.
The wedding ceremony of the long-time lovers is being attended by big names in Bollywood such as Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan and his mother Jaya, Asin, Akshay Kumar, Sajid Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Suniel Shetty, Maria Goretti, Jackky Bhagnani among others. Reliance Group tycoon Anil Ambani and his wife are also attending the event.
The wedding is in typical Maharashtrian style and the groom entered the hotel premises on a mare, donning a white Sherwani with a traditional headgear. Genelia appeared gorgeous in a traditional red saree with golden work on it.
A sangeet (Music) Ceremony was hosted Tuesday by filmmaker Karan Johar prior to the wedding as a ritual.
A few hours before the wedding, Riteish had taken to Twitter and posted, Saw the Last sunset as a Bachelor.
Here are a few pictures of the wedding and sangeet ceremony uploaded on the Facebook fan page of the actor.
