Mumbai, August 5: Genelia is a Marathi talking Christian from North Konkan. She was raised within the Bandra suburb of Mumbai. Her first debut was Tujhe Meri Kasam. Genelia was chosen amongst 300 women, who had auditioned for the film. She signed three films concurrently in three completely different languages, Tujhe Meri Kasam (Hindi), Boys (Tamil), and Satyam (Telugu).
In June 2010, she was the topic of an argument, when a Tamil day by day reported that she had attended the controversial 2010 IIFA Awards in Colombo. Several Bollywood actors and the South Indian movie trade had boycotted the occasion, over the alleged killing of Tamilian civilians on the top of the battle between the Sri Lanka Army and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 2009. The rumours of her go to to Colombo began after her pal Ritesh Deshmukh was seen on the pageant in Colombo. Immediately, numerous Tamil teams and Kollywood associations demanded her movies to be banned.
In 2011, an argument broke out for her movie Force, in a marriage sequence scene of herself and John Abraham. The marriage ceremony ceremony and rituals performed had been so genuine that they might have truly been husband and spouse in actual life. Instead of a junior artiste, an actual priest was referred to as for the scene. Again, following the reviews of Ritesh Deshmukh and D’Souza’s marriage plans, the priest landed up at producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s workplace to register a grievance. He insisted that the couple couldn’t get married, as D’Souza has been already married to John Abraham, as all marriage rituals had been noticed, from sporting a mangalsutra (a sacred thread is worn by Indian girls as a logo of their marriage), to exchanging garlands, and taking the seven steps across the holy fireplace. Shah dismissed the claims as a publicity stunt.
