May 26,2021 marks the 76th Birth Anniversary of Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Late Mr Vilasrao Deshmukh. He was popularly known as ‘People’s Minister’ because of his tremendous contribution to society, in the capacity of a politician.
He bid adieu to the world on August 14, 2012, after a long battle with liver cancer. His untimely demise caused a lot of grief and left a huge vacuum in the lives of his family members, including his son, actor Riteish Deshmukh. Riteish’s wife, Genelia Deshmukh, acted as a solid support system and a pillar of strength for him.
She is not only a doting wife to Riteish and an amazing mother to their two sons, but she is also an ideal daughter-in-law. We saw that side of her, when today, on Vilasrao Deshmukh’s birth anniversary, she penned an emotional note, after sharing a picture of Vilasraoji from her and Riteish’s wedding.
She wrote how he made her feel welcomed in the family, after her wedding, and how he made sure to make her believe that family doesn’t mean being related to only blood. Vilasrao Deshmukh is survived by his wife Vaishali Deshmukh and three sons Amit Deshmukh, Dheeraj Deshmukh and Riteish Deshmukh. Riteish and Genelia acted together in films like ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’, ‘Masti’ and ‘Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya’. They got married on February 3rd, 2021. They have two sons, ‘Riaan’ born on November 25th, 2014, and ‘Rahyl’ born on June 1st, 2016.
