Mumbai, Dec 3: Actress Genelia Deshmukh, who is coming back on the big screen after four years with a cameo in her actor-husband Riteish Deshmukh’s upcoming Marathi film “Mauli”, says she did not realise for how long she has been away from facing the cameras.
Genelia shook a leg with Riteish in the film’s special Holi track called “Surf laavun dhuvun tak”, which released on Sunday.
How time flies it’s been four years since I was last seen on screen.. Thank You @Riteishd for insisting I did this when a zillion times I thought I couldn’t..Thank You @AjayAtulOnline for Dhuvun Tak I could have danced all night on it https://t.co/wopAPkc3GI

Talking about her comeback on screen and working with Riteish after a long gap, Genelia wrote on Instagram: “My God it’s been four years since I was last on screen… Did not even realise it. Thank you Riteish for ‘Dhuvun tak’ and for making sure I did it…had such a blast.”
Four years ago, the Bollywood couple also did a similar cameo in a festive track in Riteish’s debut Marathi film “Lai Bhaari”.
“Mauli”, directed by Aditya Sarpotdar, written by Kshitij Patwardhan and produced by Genelia is scheduled to release on December 14.
Not only Genelia, Riteish also had fun shooting with his wife for the song.
He said in a statement: “I would never want to leave any opportunity to work with Genelia. I have actually forced her to do this song.
“It felt great to be dancing together after four years and that too on an Ajay-Atul composition. Hopefully, the audience enjoys it as much as we did.”
Riteish and Genelia, who were seen together in movies like “Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya”, “Tujhe Meri Kasam” and “Masti”, got married in 2012 and have two sons named Riaan and Rahyl.
