Actor Genelia D’Souza, who is known for playing the bubbly, vivacious college girl in most of her films, says she seems to own that spot in Bollywood.
“I seem to own the spot of the college girl in Bollywood. Down south I have been given strong issue based roles. But here, I don’t get one,” says the 24-year-old actor, who will be next seen opposite John Abraham in Force.
A scene where the actor had to tie the knot with her co-star Abraham in the film, faced controversy after the priest who conducted the on-screen ceremony, claimed that he had read out the actual wedding mantra. But D’Souza, who has been fighting off the rumours of her marriage to good friend Ritesh Deshmukh, says she is tired of clarifying her martial status.
“I am a girl, I have a family, and I also want to get married. I am bothered by rumours about me. It not only affects me, but also my family. We actors have a life, we have a heart and we are lonely, and they should get that straight before doing cheap publicity stunts. It is sad,” says the actor.
On John abraham
We are friends, so it was very comfortable working with him. I had worked with him before in a commercial.
I am absolutely fine with remakes. But doing a remake is more difficult than it seems.
