Mumbai: Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza are finally going to be seen together in a film. The duo who were last seen together in ‘Masti’ seven years back and had made their debut together in ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’ back in 2003. Ever since then, rumours have been rife about their alleged romance. But the couple has always denied their link up.

Now the much hush-hush couple is all set to work together in a romantic comedy, to be produced by Kumar Taurani of Tips.

The duo has always maintained that they are ‘good friends’ but have been apprehensive about signing any film together. In fact, last year there was news about the duo deciding to tie the knot. But they had rubbished the news. There were also rumours about Ritiesh’s growing fondness for Jacqueline Fernandez which Genelia had not taken nicely. Sources close to the two actors state that the duo got back together in July last year.

Speaking to a daily, a source said, “They have stayed away from doing movies together despite getting plenty of offers. But this film just got their attention.”

Producer Kumar Taurani confirmed, “Yes, we are indeed making a film with the two. It is a romantic comedy. The film will be directed by a new director Mandeep Kumar, who has earlier done a Punjabi film with us. He brought the script and we are quite kicked about it.”

The shooting for the film will begin on July 25.
