Genelia with Vijay

Genelia has once again turned her attention towards the Tamil films. After the success of Santosh Subramaniam, she will again be seen in another Tamil flick. Genelia will be the female lead for ‘Velayutham’, Vijay’s next. Jayam Raja, is the director and Aascar Ravichandran is the producer.

This is Genelia’s second film with Vijay. The first one was ‘Sachin’. There is some interesting news too. Hansika Motwani is another female who will also be seen in the lead. The hearsay is that ‘Velayutham’ is a remake of Nagarjuna’s hit ‘Azad’ which was way back in 2000, which was in turn inspired by the Big B’s ‘Main Azad Hoon’ in 1989.

Love will happen someday: Genelia

Rave reviews followed her. So also ad campaigns. Genelia D’ Souza has now established herself in the highly competitive Hindi film industry after giving memorable performances in Jaane Tu … and Mere Baap Pehle Aap.

Talking about her co-star Fardeen Khan, in the recently released Life Partner, the 22-year-old actor says, “It was great working with Fardeen because we share a good rapport. He is encouraging and you enjoy working with people from whom you can learn things.”

Genelia has given many award winning performances and she’s an established name in Kollywood and Tollywood. “I enjoy acting and it doesn’t matter whether I am doing a Bollywood flick or a South Indian one,” says the actor. Does Genelia intend to act in Hollywood and is she ready to do cameos? “If it’s worth playing such roles, definitely I will do it,” says Genelia. “I have always given importance to scripts but now it’s like a complete meal which includes director, producers, co-stars et al.”

The pressure of stardom is yet to affect this young bubbly actor. Genelia “prefers to take rest if I am not working”. Style and the glamour world go hand in hand. So what’s her take on fashion? “I am a very casual person,” she says. For the world outside, she’s a cool person. But what makes her go red? “Pretentious people and people who take away credit for others’ work really put me off,” says the actress.

Success and a hectic lifestyle don’t stop her from doing what a girl of her age does. “I do all the normal things like any girl of my age would be doing. I don’t restrict myself from doing anything — be it walking on the roads, going to public places or having a blast with my friends,” says Genelia.

So has she found her prince charming? “Right now I don’t have any special person in my life. It’s not that I want to concentrate only on my career so I am avoiding getting into a relationship. But I believe if it had to happen it will happen someday.”

Genelia believes in living life to the fullest. “I take life positively. I am also very energetic”. Her happy go lucky girl image has won her many fans. “The image of a chulbuli girl goes with me but I am sure of myself. I know what to do and what not to do,” she says with a note of finality.

Genelia Biography

Popular Telugu actress Genelia D’Souza was born on August 5, 1987, in England. She is also known to people close to her as Harini. Her parents originally hail from Goa and later moved to England. Genelia made her move from England to India in pursuit of her childhood dream of becoming an actress. She got her first break in the movie ‘Boys’ directed by Shankar. The film was a box-office hit and soon Genelia started getting more roles. Genelia has so far acted in over a dozen Telugu, Tamil and Hindi movies.

Genelia – The Tollywood Actress

Genelia’s success rate in Tollywood has been pretty good. Her movies Satyam, Masti, Samba, Sye and Happy have all fared pretty well at the box office. Despite getting good roles and her movies doing average business commercially, Genelia was still waiting for that one big hit that could change her career. The wait was not long as her most recent movie ‘Bommarillu’ has had a huge positive impact on Genelia’s career.

Bommarillu, with Genelia and Siddharth Narayan in the lead, became a super duper hit and gave her career the much needed boost. In the movie Genelia plays the role of a talkative and bubbly girl ‘Hasini’ who does whatever she likes to do. Her acting skills have been well appreciated throughout the industry and she won many awards for the movie.
Finally the true acting talent of Genelia has come to forefront with ‘Bommarillu’ and now time will tell if Genelia can become the number one actress in South India. Her latest movie Dee with Vishnu directed by Sreenu Vytla is expected to come out in January or February. Genelia also recently bagged the role of leading lady opposite Aamir Khan’s nephew Imraan Khan in his debut Bollywood movie Tu Ya Jaane Na.

Early life and educational background

Born in Mumbai into a Mangalorean Catholic family, D’Souza was raised a Roman Catholic in the Bandra suburb of Mumbai. Her mother Jeanette D’Souza was formerly a managing director with a Pharma Multinational corporation (MNC), who left her job in 2004 to help Genelia with her career. Her father Neil D’Souza, is a senior official with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS).She also has a younger brother, Nigel D’Souza,who works with the Bombay Stock Exchange. According to D’Souza, her name “Genelia”, means “rare” or “unique”, and is a portmanteau of Jeanette and Neil, her mother and father’s name. She is also often informally referred to as Geenu, her nickname. D’Souza studied at the Apostolic Carmel High School in Bandra and later joined St. Andrew’s College in Bandra to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree of Management Studies.She completed her degree while shooting for her first film, Tujhe Meri Kasam in 2003 and initially thought that an MNC job would suit her.[14] She liked sports and studies in college, and was a state level athlete, sprinter, and a national level football player.D’Souza did her first modeling assignment at the age of 15,the result of being spotted as the bridesmaid at a wedding. She was selected for the Parker Pen commercial with Amitabh Bachchan, just two days before her exams, and had to shoot the next day. Initially she refused, because of her exam the next day, but the director persuaded D’Souza to shoot for the commercial.

She gained wide attention from the Parker Pen commercial with Amitabh Bachchan,who said “she was good, and her expressions were spontaneous”.She further did a Fair and Lovely 2003 Cricket World Cup advertisement with cricketer Krishnamachari Srikkanth.

Personal life

D’Souza is deeply religious and says that, she regularly attends Sunday Mass at St. Anne’s Parish (Bandra), and whenever the family is home, a part of their evening is reserved for saying the rosary together.In an interview with The Times of India, she comments, “I keep a Novena every Wednesday at St. Michael’s Church in Mahim.”In an interview with Daily News and Analysis, she said that “My communication with God is conversational, I’m God’s favourite child; I believe that God has always been kind to me.” Tabloids have repeatedly linked D’Souza romantically with Ritesh Deshmukh, ever since they starred together in their debut film Tujhe Meri Kasam in 2003.They were reportedly ready to get engaged, but Ritesh’s father, the then-Maharashtra Chief Minister, Vilasrao Deshmukh did not agree.Ever since then, D’Souza has strongly denied any rumors of a relationship with Deshmukh, and responds that she has just friendly relations with him. She currently resides in Bandra (Mumbai), where she was brought up. Her mothertongue is Konkani.

In June 2010, she was the subject of a controversy, when a Tamil daily reported that she had attended the controversial 2010 IIFA Awards in Colombo.Several Bollywood actors and the South Indian film industry had boycotted the event, over the alleged killing of Tamilian civilians at the height of the conflict between the Sri Lanka Army and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 2009.The rumours of her visit to Colombo started after her friend Ritesh Deshmukh was seen at the festival in Colombo. Immediately, various Tamil groups and Kollywood associations demanded her films to be banned.
