Love was in the air of Zee TV’s Maruti Suzuki presents Dance India Dance Season 3 as newlywed Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza came to promote their upcoming movie ‘Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya.’ Coming on the sets of DID 3, their first appearance together on a reality show, was a natural choice for the duo as they are big fans of the show, both sharing a passion for dance.
Riteish and Genelia were all smiles from the moment they entered the sets. Mithun Da, who Ritesh considers family gave them a warm welcome and made them feel at home. Once the performances began Riteish obliged Vaibhav and Mohena’s request to shake a leg on stage. Remo D’Souza who had earlier choreographed Riteish joined him on stage, danced on the title track from Remo’s movie ‘Faltu.’
Abhik and Urvashi did a bolero (slow tempo romantic latin dance) act on Piya O Re Piya, the romantic track from Riteish and Genelia’s upcoming movie Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya. Master Geeta, who has choreographed the duo in the movie, dedicated the act to the lead pair and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to choreograph such a beautiful romantic number for them. Dada said, “You guys just got married… hence after such a romantic number first dance toh mandatory hai.” Riteish and Genelia did an endearing slow dance to the lilting tune of the track. The couple escorted Master Geeta Kapur on stage and thanked her for being the wonderful person that she is.
Dada noticed that Riteish said, “I Love You” too all the female contestants of the show. In his reprimand he said, “Hamare ghar ke bahu ke saamne ye sab nahi chalega”. Genelia jumped at the opportunity of Dada supporting her cause and said that throughout the making of the movie Ritesh kept saying the same to Master Geeta who is the choreographer of their upcoming movie. At this Riteish got up, went upto Geeta, kept his palm on her head and said, “Main Geeta ke sar pe haath rakh ke kasam khata hun Genelia, ki main tumse aur sirf tumse pyaar karoonga.” After saying this Riteish ran to Genelia, went down on his knees and proposed to her once again. All that one could after this moment was ‘Awwww…’ that resonated from every corner of the sets.
