Genelia D’Souza remembered her father-in-law Vilasrao Deshmukh on Sunday. The actress shared a picture of her sons Ryan and Rahil sitting next to a picture of the late Maharashtra Chief Minister and wrote a note about him on his 10th death anniversary. “Dear papa, Ryan and Rahil asked me today. “Ay, if we ask Ajoba a question, will he answer??” My answer is undoubtedly, “If you ask him, he will answer.” I have lived honestly. Talking to you all these years and getting back every answer, I know you are with us in our hardest times and laugh with us in our lighter times, I know you answer every doubt we have and now I know, you have read what I am writing to you..,” he wrote.
The second picture in the post shows two boys dressed in ethnic clothes, kneeling in front of a picture of Vilasrao Deshmukh and praying. “And I know this is your promise to us, you’ll always be there, if we open our ears to hear you, open our eyes to see you and open our hearts to feel you. We miss you papa. PS – Ryan and Rahil insists they’ll hold you on both sides.” ,” added Genelia.
Riteish Deshmukh also shared a post for his late father and wrote: “It’s been 10 years… I miss you everyday papa.”
Genelia and Ritesh got married in February 2012. A few months later, Vilasrao Deshmukh died on 14 August due to multiple organ failure.
