Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh is all set to tie the knot with Genelia D'Souza this year, says a media report. 

Riteish and Genelia who met on the set of their 2003 film Tujhe Meri Kasam and fell in love, will get married in 2010.

The report says, families of both have given Ritiesh their blessings and the wedding will take place in July this year. 

The Deshmukhs are already making preparations and have told their relatives and close friends about a tentative wedding date. 

Genelia is the first girl Riteish invited home to meet his parents. At the time, the family had reservations about him bringing in a non-Maratha bahu but they saw that their beta was serious even after six years.

It's been over four years since his older  brother Amit got married, and there was pressure  for Riteish to get married. He made it clear that his choice was Genelia who he calls Genes lovingly. Both sets of parents met and now the wheels have been set in motion. 

The couple has also purchased property at Pali Hill where they plan to shift post-wedding. "Riteish being an architect has been busy hunting property for the last few months. In fact, he and Genelia have sat down and designed the interiors. Some of their close friends have even seen the blueprint and it looks very impressive."

Giving details about the wedding the source adds, "The Deshmukhs  have many relatives from Latur and they've all have been informed." 

The shaadi was even a hot topic of discussion Sunday night when Riteish invited Shah Rukh, Gauri, Karan, Sajid Khan along with some friends over for dinner. "Whenever his friends are over, they all keep teasing and prodding him about tying the knot. Now he's finally told them that he is taking the plunge this year."

After attempting romantic dramas (Bachna Aye Haseeno) and thrillers (Kidnap), Minissha Lamba has signed on her first comedy film. Directed by Sagar Ballary (Bheja Fry), the film also stars Tusshar Kapoor and Shreyas Talpade.
