Genelia DSouza talks about life after Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na
The girl-next-door appeal and a goody image after the smash hit film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na has probably landed Genelia DSouza a lucrative contract with a cola brand. DSouza chats easily about her dud debut (she starred in Tujhe Meri Kasam in 2003 that sank at the box office). Yes,Jaane Tu changed everything. Im doing three new films now, she says.
When we tell her shes the seventh most Googled person according to the web browsers 2008 India Zeitgeist List. Am I? Thats exciting. I didnt even know that until this moment,phew! she laughs. With a more successful career in Telugu films so far,DSouza has now landed bigger Hindi movies Abbas Mustans Life Partner with Akshaye Khanna,Anees Bazmees Its My Life with Harman Baweja and David Dhawans Hook Ya Crook with John Abraham.
A management student,a lesser-known fact about DSouza is her sporty side. A state-level athlete and a national-level soccer player,DSouza says she couldve pursued sports had her present career not chosen her. I think films chose me instead of me deciding what I wanted to do. Maybe I wouldve pursued sports seriously if films hadnt happened, she smiles.
