Hot Bollywood star Genelia D’Souza’s favourite sport is soccer and never imagined she would be an actress, “Honestly, I didn’t ever dream of acting in my life. I’m a sportsperson and have been a national level football player.” David Beckham is her favourite player, “I admire his looks and his stylish way of playing game,” she says.
Genelia, who has a degree in Management Studies, is still reeling from the mega-hit success of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na opposite Imraan Khan, which is now clocking in at about 60 crores. She is currently filming the Hindi remake of her monster Tollywood hit Bommarillu – the new version is called It’s My Life and will also star Harman Baweja. She won the Filmfare South Award for the original and she has already remade it once – for Kollywood under the title Santosh Subramaniam – this has to be something of a record. Santosh…. has been running for over 100 days continuously in the South.
What type of roles in the future is Genelia looking for? “I am looking at roles that would challenge me as an actor. I do not wish to do roles for the sake of doing films. I am looking out for some really different and interesting script,” she explains.
