en Bollywood News Genelia D’Souza recalls being “outsider” in South film industry; says, “They come from a legacy of films”

Recently, Genelia D'Souza recalled being told ‘Bollywood dropouts' when she started doing South films.

Genelia D'Souza recently opened up about how the film industry has changed over the years, especially in terms of the crossover between Bollywood and South Indian cinema. In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Genelia said that she was once told that those who couldn't make a mark in Bollywood would star in South films.

She called herself an outsider in the industry and said that she was initially treated differently because she didn't have the same kind of fan base as the other actors she was working with.

Genelia asserted, “In the South, they have a very loyal fan base. They come from a legacy of films. I, on the other hand, was an outsider in two films. But, when I did South films then they used to say that Bollywood dropouts go to the South, at that point in time.”

Genelia also said that though she is not in touch with some of her co-stars from her South Indian films, they always pick up where they left off when they meet in real life. She said that she's excited to see what the future holds for Indian cinema and that she's looking forward to working on more projects in the South.

Coming to the professional front, the 35-year-old actress is currently seen in her latest film, Trial Period, streaming on JioCinema. The film also stars Manav Kaul. She has a bunch of projects in her kitty including Kireeti Reddy's upcoming film, Junior.
