Mumbai, Feb 3, 2012: Bollywood actors Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza tied the knot today in traditional Marathi style at a five-star hotel here in the presence of leading figures from Bollywood and the world of politics.








Riteish, wearing a white sherwani and red ’feta’ (turban), entered the hotel on a ’ghodi’. The ’baaraat’ started from the grounds near Grand Hyatt and reached the hotel. The actor’s politician father Vilasrao Deshmukh was dressed in a brown sherwani.
