Genelia D'Souza was first seen by the Hindi film audience opposite Ritesh Deshmukh in Tujhe Meri Ksaam (2003). But her real claim to fame was the Parker pen ad with the one and only Amitabh Bachchan. In fact even Big B was very impressed with her spontaneity and spark. After that, Genelia once again made a mark when she played Ritesh's overbearing wife in Indra Kumar's laugh riot, Masti (2004).
Genelia took a self imposed break from Hindi Films, although she continued working down South and featured in a lot of successful films. However, fate had decided to make 2008 as the year which would mark her big time return to Hindi films. After the success of Shemaroo's Mere Baap Pehle Aap, just last month end, Genelia's motor-mouth act in last Friday's Jaana Tu...Ya Jaane Na has been appreciated by all. The film has taken a superb start in cities across India and trade unanimously predicts that Aamir Khan's JTYJN, which marks the debut of his nephew, Imran Khan, is a sure shot winner. And that makes it two-out-of -two in two months for Genelia!
What a way to return to Hindi Films, Genelia.
