Genelia Deshmukh Reveals She Was Told ‘Your Career Is Over’ When Getting Married To Riteish Deshmukh
Genelia Deshmukh had won people’s hearts with her role as Aditi in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. She had taken a sabbatical post wedding with Riteish Deshmukh, and only made a few cameo appearances in films in the last few years. Now, the actress is back to showbiz as her 2007 Hindi film It’s My Life, is opting for the direct-to-TV route for its release. Genelia is quite excited, and she recently opened up about her decision to take a break from films post wedding, in an interview.

Genelia Deshmukh, while speaking to Pinkvilla, said that she hopes to get more work now. She said that she was very clear when she got married that she wanted to spend some time with her family. “I had worked so much before that, people might have not seen me much in Hindi cinema but in South cinema, I literally worked 365 days of the year And hence, I felt like I needed that kind of a break.” She said that her family was her priority and then she had kids. She said that when she was getting married, she was also told by people that her career would end, however, that didn’t stop her.

“When I was getting married, I had people telling me that Oh you are getting married, for a girl, your career is done, I heard everything but I was clear that it is not going to stop me from marrying because I wanted that,” said Genelia.

The film It’s My Life stars Genelia, Harman Baweja, Nana Patekar. It was shot in 2007, but didn’t see the light of the day back then.
