Pandit Bhagwat Guruji, who played the Pandit in the wedding sequence of actors John Abraham and Genelia D'Souza in Vipul Shah"s film Force claims to have married them for real. The Pandit claimed that he had performed actual wedding rituals and has recited proper mantras during the filming of the wedding sequence in Force.
Therefore, he told that John and Genelia are now husband and wife. This news came as a shocking to the actors and the film's producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah. “Countless number of weddings have been performed in Hindi cinema, but this is the first time that I have come across someone so keen to be in the limelight that he can go far enough to claim to have married Genelia D'Souza off," told Shah, while rubbishing the Pandit"s claim in a statement.
“I don't hold anything against Pandit Bhagwat Guruji but will not let anyone point a finger at the leading lady of my film in this manner. He is only looking out for his 15 minutes of fame without any real standing. The whole incident is bizarrely shocking and there is no truth to it at all. Any such claims should be dismissed as a desperate attempt to gain attention," Vipul Shah added.
Actress Genelia D"Souza is very upset with the reports of her marriage. Her spokesperson says: “The bizarreness of the pundit's claims is astounding. It is extremely unfortunate that someone would try to take advantage of just being in the same scene as Genelia D'Souza in this manner."
While John Abraham is presently single, Genelia is believed to be dating actor Ritesh Deshmukh.
