2. They're both incredibly private people
The couple have always maintained a stiff lip about their relationship, especially during their courtship. They both strongly believe that they do not need to share details of their private affairs with the media. Isn't that incredibly refreshing?
3. They fell in love in truly filmy style
Riteish and Genelia fell in love with each other on the sets of their debut film, Tujhe Meri Kasam. They didn't work together for over eight years post that and Genelia moved down south but they didn't let that come in the way of their relationship. *Collective awww*
