Genelia D’Souza is looking forward to the release of Life Partner on the Independence Day holiday weekend on August 14th. She rejects suggestions that she hasn’t been working very hard for the last year. “I have worked with UTV, Studio 18, Aamir Khan Productions, done films in the South, and I have four releases this year. There’s one opposite Fardeen Khan, It’s My Life opposite Harman Baweja, Hook Ya Crook with John Abraham and Yahoo with Shahid Kapoor. Isn’t that a lot?” she asks.
Genelia’s reference to the her film with Shahid Kapoor being called Yahoo will upset director Ken Ghosh. “Because as far as I’m concerned my film is not called Yahoo,” he insists, “The title has registered with the public because it has been thrown at them so often. But it hasn’t been registered with us. We don’t have the title, plain and simple. Some other producer has the title Yahoo. Not that I’m really keen on calling the film Yahoo anyway.”
Genelia recently took a time-out in Mumbai to play football in the rain near the new Bandra-Worli Sealink. She was clearly enjoying the experience. “It’s been five years since I played football in the rain,” she says, “Do you know I was a national level football player in college?”
