There is no one in my life: GeneliaFebruary 3rd, 2009 - 8:36 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Feb 3 (IANS) Genelia D’Souza, who won hearts with her girl-next-door image in last year’s hit “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na”, says she isn’t seeing anyone and right now her main concern is her upcoming film “It’s My Life”.”I’m pretty much like Aditi from ‘Jaane Tu…’. There’s no one in my life. I’m even shooting on Valentine’s Day,” Genelia told IANS here.
Helmed by writer-turned director Aneez Bazmee, “It’s My Life” is a remake of the 2006 Telugu hit “Bommarillu”. Genelia played the female lead in the original opposite southern actor Siddharth Narayan and won the Telugu Filmfare best actress award for the film.
“The film’s Telugu version was blockbuster down south. Aneez sir has done a terrific job with the film and I hope the Hindi version is as successful as the Telugu one,” Genelia said.
In the film, she teams up with Hurman S. Baweja, who was written off by the critics after his debut vehicle “Love Story 2050″ turned turtle at the box office.
Asked her if she had any apprehensions working with Hurman, Genelia said: “I would not like to comment on that but I just hope my film does really well”.
Produced by Boney Kapoor and Sridevi, “It’s My Life” also stars Nana Patekar.
The actress, who is the new brand ambassador of Fanta, was in the capital to launch Coca Cola’s Fanta new flavour.
The 21-year-old wants to do all kinds of roles.
“I’ll take any role that challenges me. After all, it’s only films that make the bigger picture for me,” she said.
Not many know that Genelia also had her opinion about Bollywood during her years of struggle.
“Like a normal middle class girl, I initially believed that it’s (Bollywood) a big bad industry, but now I’ve realised that it treats you how you want it to treat you. I look at it now as a career opportunity than anything else,” she said.
Apart from “It’s My Life”, she would also be seen in David Dhawan’s “Hook Ya Crook” and Rumy Jafry’s “Life Partner”.
