Mumbai: Her last film Mere Baap Pehle Aap bombed at the Box Office. But newcomer Genelia D'souza is hopeful about her next - Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na.
Therefore, July 4 will also be a big day for her as two major releases starring two debutant actors will hit the screens. While Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na introduces Imran Khan, Love Story 2050 introduces Harman Baweja.
Interestingly Genelia is the common link between the two young actors. She plays leading lady to Imran in Jaane Tu.. and months later will be seen sharing the screen with Harman in Anees Bazmee's comedy, It's My Life.
Even though Imran's hogging all the attention for Jaane Tu… currently, Genelia has no problems whatsoever.
“Nobody would be interested talking about me right now for sure. You know what I mean. It’s being practical. I wouldn’t have got this kind of buzz about my film. any newcomer goes through the grind to get noticed. So being cast opposite Imran Khan, it’s being his launch, and he being from Aamir and Mansoor khan family, people are excited to know what this film is about. And eventually Aditi is important part of this film,” she says.
In Jaane Tu…, Genelia plays Imran's love interest, Aditi, a name that's already caught on thanks to this chartbusting song that's on everyone's lips right now.
But it's a song Genelia doesn't have fond memories of.
“It was torture on the set to do. Everytime I had to do this dukhi (sad) bit. And suddenly from nowhere they would say cut and I would like jump out. I am glad that the song is catching up,” she says.
A warm campus drama that touches upon themes of young love and friendship, the film poses that big question to which there's never an easy answer - when do you know it’s love?
