Genelia wrote, “My Mother. When I think of my life till now, I sometimes wonder how so much happened. When I think of my profession, it wasn’t even a distant dream, I came from a middle class family but when offered a role, I had a mum who looked at it as an opportunity, gave up her job to be with me on sets and looked after my career without even knowing too much about it (sic).”
She added, “Most of the roles offered was when I was in college and as much as my mum encouraged me to look at opportunities, she also was pretty firm that I couldn’t leave my studies and had to complete my graduation and today I thank her for it. Where having children are concerned, there’s no one in this world I trust more than my mum and there’s no one who is so hands on like her (sic).”
Talking about how great her mother is, Genelia wrote, “So when I actually think of all the things, I think I have excelled in, I realise I could do it because I had the World’s Greatest Lady telling me, I’m here with you, take the step, Il hold you if you fall. I Love you Ma. We laugh, We cry, we make time fly. We are the best of friends- My Mother and I. Happy Birthday Mama (sic).”
On the work front, Genelia D’Souza was recently seen in the film It’s My Life. The film that was originally made in 2008 was released on November 29, 2020 on the OTT platform Zee Cinema. The film also stars Harman Baweja in the lead role.
