Genelia D’Souza, one of the most exuberant actresses of Bollywood, turns 28 as she celebrates her birthday today, 05 August 2015.
The pretty actress who is married to bollywood actor Riteish Deshmkuh is currently busy looking after her eight months old son and is thoroughly enjoying motherhood.
Though the actress has preferred to stay away from the limelight of the screen, her charm and livelihood has won the hearts of many of her fans.
On the occasion of her birthday, we present all the facts you need to know about Genelia D’souza.
Genelia was born in Mumbai into a Mangalorean Catholic family of Neil and Jeanette D’Souza on 5th Aug 1987. During her childhood, the actress was an athlete and played national level football.
Despite being an amazing actress, she never aimed to be in the glamour industry ever and wanted to join an MNC after completing her degree in Management.
Although she made her debut in Bollywood with Tujhe Meri Kasam in 2003 opposite Riteish Deshmukh, she had already gained attention as a model after working in commercials like Parker Pen with Amitabh Bachchan and Fair and Lovely during the 2003 Cricket World Cup.
Genelia’s performance in Tujhe Meri Kasam was appreciated by all and this led to her debut in Tollywood. Thereafter Genelia worked in various Telugu movies and became a famous name in the South.
Genelia was last seen in cameo appearances in Jai Ho and Lai Bhaari in 2014.
Genelia first met Riteish on the sets of her debut film ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’ in 2003 which was apparently Riteish’s debut film as well. Although she though Riteish, being a CM’s son, would be a spoilt brat, to her surprise, Riteish turned out to be extremely humble and polite with everybody on the sets.
And gradually the duo became the best of friends. With time the fondness grew between them and love bloomed.
After dating each other for a good nine years, Genelia married her beau Riteish on 3rd February 2012 in Maharashtrian and Catholic traditions.
The gorgeous actress gave birth to a baby boy on 25th November 2014 – Riann Riteish Deshmukh. And she feels that being a mother is the most rewarding feeling.
