MUMBAI: There are plenty of couples in the B town who have decided to tie the knot in 2012. Amongst others, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza will begin the year with a private wedding affair.

There was a pre-wedding bash for the lovely couple Tuesday, hosted by Sajid Nadiadwala and Fardeen Khan at Royalty Bandra.

"Riteish and Genelia are lovely couples. Their seven years of relationship is very strong and I admire it. The celebrations will begin from Jan 29," Nadiadwala told reporters.

Many Bollywood celebs graced the event and blessed the couple. Boman Irani, who shared the screen space with Riteish in many films, said: "Riteish is like a son, friend and partner to me. I wish all the success to both of them."

Karan Johar wished them "all the happiness".
