Genelia D'Souza’s Hindi movies

Genelia is an adorable, cute heroine liked very much by her fans for the bubbly characters she plays in films. She first hit the limelight with a Parker Pen commercial starring along side Amitabh Bachchan and further did a Fair and Lovely ad appearing along side Srikanth. The ace Tamil director, Shankar was very much impressed with her performance in both the ads and cast her in a leading role in his Tamil version of "Boys" in 2003.
But after a few movies, she was not seen much in Tamil films as she had made her foray into Telugu films. She was a successful actress in Telugu movies and she won a couple of Filmfare Awards for her performance in "Bommarillu".
Genelia D'Souza was on the look out for greener pastures for her acting career and she signed up for Hindi movies "Masti" and "Mere Baap Pehle Aap" which were average in the box office, though her debut Hindi movie was "Tujhe Meri Kasam". It seems she had not much of choice in selecting suitable roles and landed up in roles that were not meant for her. Script selection being wrong, she couldn't taste success.
But, Genelia’s performance in "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na" is acclaimed as runaway success by many critics and movie-watchers. Her role in the film was cut out for her and the ensuing success was attributed to choice of the right role. She played the peppy role of herself, the-girl-next-door type of character in the movie. She carved out a place for herself in Bollywood with a couple of projects coming her way.
Genelia D'Souza was in Mumbai, where Bollywood is based and grew up in Mumbai and though recognizes herself as a Mangalorean Catholic. Genelia studied at St. Teresa High School in Santacruz, Mumbai. She joined St. Andrews College, Bandra to pursue her Bachelor's Degree of Management Studies. So it is only natural for her to hope for a long innings in Hindi movies too.
