Buzz in B town is that, recently the actor-director duo was spotted at a coffee shop in a Mumbai suburban absorbed in a detailed conversation. Though nothing has been confirmed as yet, but the chances are quite high about Genelia being a part of Imtiaz Ali’s new film.
Genelia’s last super hit film was Jaane Tu Yaa Jaane Naa which was produced by legendary actor, Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood Aamir khan to launch his nephew. Since then it has been more than two years she has not delivered a hit.

The famous Bollywood photographer Dabboo Ratnani’s annual 2010 calendar is out. This is the 11th year where he has captured all the top celebrities for his trademark calendar. The calendar this year will have a black-and-white theme.
Deepika Padukone’s picture looks like she is not wearing anything, since all the body parts you see are bare. Dabboo Ratnani says, “I wanted to make her look sensual, but aesthetic. Last year, I shot her in a sari, so this is in total contrast. She strikes a thinking, dreamy pose, and I have used lighting to match her mood. Normally Bollywood is associated with bright colors. Black and white images are of the bygone eras but I opted for a stark B&W mood in the snapshots is dark but the styling modem.”
Every year, Dabboo starts his preparations in October. Although, he has many interactions with the celebrities for their shots for magazines, movies and portfolios, every year all of them take time out for the calendar. Ratnani says, “The shoot provides the stars a platform to experiment with their looks and styling.” The 2010 calendar includes celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Kajol, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, John Abraham, Sonam Kapoor and Kangna Ranaut.
The celebrities who are making their first appearance in this calendar are Asin, Farhan Akhtar, Genelia D’Souza and Imran Khan. Dabboo does not want to comment on which star is looking the best. He says, “They are all my friends and go out of their way to cooperate. For me they all look hot.” Dabboo Ratnani is not interested in selling his calendar in the market, it is exclusively made for the Bollywood celebrities.
Shy girl of tinsel town, Amrita Rao has changed her image with a hot appearance in the Life Partner. She is always accompanied by her mother making tough for people who try to catch her with some arm candy. However some link-ups with her co-star have heated things in between.
Same is the case with the youth icon Genelia D’Souza. Having lot in common, they became friends on the sets of Life Partner. On one such memorable moment, the two actresses ended up in a dance number in front of the crew members. Later when Genelia was sick during shooting of the film, Amrita was sitting beside her till her mother’s arrival. Who says actresses can’t be friends?
Actors Ritesh Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza recently spotted together dining at a Mahim restaurant.
No matter how many times the actors deny that they are seeing each other, one could not believe it after seeing them together at some restaurant in Mahim, Mumbai. Both the actors and their friends were gathered together for a party to celebrate the success of Ritesh’s father Vilasrao Deshmukh being appointed as the Central Minister of Heavy Industries. They first went to Goa Portuguesa restaurant, but decided not to dine there as it was a bright place. Later they went to Culture Curry which was comparatively dim.
One of the onlookers from the restaurant revealed, “Ritesh and Genelia came in with a couple of friends at 9.30pm to Culture Curry and were in a relaxed mood. Both of them were in the mood to celebrate the fact that Ritesh’s father was respectfully reinstated as one of the ministers. Ritesh and Genelia were wary of being photographed as they do not make public appearances together as they have kept their relationship under wraps.”
“They had ordered for traditional south Indian food. They were together for over two hours and were comfortable with several fans who occasionally approached them for autographs. While they readily gave autographs, they refused to be photographed together,” added the onlooker.
Wondering like anybody else, the onlooker said, “We wonder why they are hiding their relationship when they look so good together and seem so completely in love?”
The girl of moment, Genelia D’Souza who earned lots of fans after Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na is coming up next with Ken Ghosh’s Yahoo opposite Shahid Kapoor. She is playing a choreographer in the film and is nervous to match dance steps with Shahid.
“It’s my first film with Shahid Kapoor who is a phenomenal dancer. And, I’m nervous as hell at the thought of having to match steps with him,” says Genelia.
When asked to her that whether she knew that Jiah Khan was first doing the role, she said, “I accepted the role because it is challenging for me as an actor. Also, I share a good rapport with the film corporation that is producing Yahoo.”
Genelia who is a superstar in Andhra Pradesh proudly says, “They actually write scripts for me there.” The actress get flooded with Bollywood offers post Jaane Tu… and has many projects in line which includes Abbas-Mastan’s Life Partners, Boney Kapoor’s It’s My Life and UTV’s Hook Ya Crook opposite John Abraham. Talking about all these films, Genne adds, “Fortunately for me, each of the roles I’m doing is different from the other.”
Genelia is also eager for the sequel of Jaane Tu…, but right now she is happy with yahoo in Bollywood.
