Actor Riteish Deshmukh is all set to step behind the camera as he is all set to make his directorial debut with the Marathi film 'Ved', which also marks Genelia Deshmukh's return to acting after a decade.

Riteish took to Instagram on Wednesday and announced that he will be taking a leap and standing behind the camera for the first time.

"After being in front of the camera for 20 years, I take a big leap to stand behind it for the first time."

"As I direct my first marathi film, I humbly ask you all for your good wishes and blessings. Be a part of this journey, be a part of this madness. 'Ved' (Madness)," he wrote alongside the poster of the film.

Genelia too shared the same poster and captioned it: "My First Marathi Film. And Back to the Movies - Finally. Directed by @riteishdA A Dream come true." Details related to the plot are still under wraps.

Genelia was last seen in Telugu film 'Naa Ishtam', which was released in 2012. It will be nearly one decade of hiatus for the talented actress to return as heroine, that too in a Marathi film. Otherwise, she appeared in cameo roles in movies like 'Force 2', 'Lai Bhaari' and 'Jai Ho' in between.
