The newly wed Bollywood couple
Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza sang Tere Naal Love Ho
Gaya but not to each other but to the Jawans of Indo-Tibetan
Border Police Force (ITBP).
The couple, who started their career together eight years
ago with Tujhe Mere Kasam, spent an evening with the Jawans
at their battalion camp in the national capital.
Dressed in a green Anarkali suit, 24-year old Genelia
along with her husband and co-star Riteish sang songs from the
movie and dedicated it to the Jawans, who guard the icy
heights along country's frontier with China.
Deshmukh who is famous for his comic timings said he felt
small in front of Jawans. "We are really small in front of
you. I am too small to even praise you. It's because of you
all that we are safe in our country", he said.
"The contribution of Jawans to the nation is great. You
sacrifice your life for the nation. We can only try to
entertain you," Deshmukh added.
The lead actors along with the music composers of Tere
Naal Love Ho Gaya, Sachin-Jigar, were present at the ITBP
event on Wednesday to celebrate the Golden Jubilee year of the
border guarding force.
Raised on 24th October 1962, ITBP with close to 50
thousand personnel guards the 3488 kilometre long frontier
with China. It is also the lead force for disaster management
in the Himalyan region.
