Genelia says “Homemakers’ job is the toughest”


Genelia D’Souza has appeared in films such as Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Force, and Tera Naal Love Ho Gaya.

Genelia revealed that being a homemaker is no easy task. She stated, “Last 10 years I have been a homemaker and I did nothing. I was there for relationships and that was my life for the last 10 years. Homemakers’ job is the toughest.”

She further talked about her stint as an actor ten years ago and also recalled how she had bagged an award for getting featured in the most number of advertisements in a year. She shared, “ I remember, when I won an award for the most number of advertisements in a year, people said, ‘There are bigger actresses and you are someone who keeps getting these’. They say they don’t want to be the girl next door, but I love it.”


The year 2022 was special for Genelia and Riteish because it marked their 20th wedding anniversary in February. On February 3, 2012, the couple married. They had their first kid, Riaan, in November 2014, and their second child, Rahyl, in June 2016. The actors have also appeared in ‘Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya,’ ‘Lai Bhari,’ and ‘Masti,’ and were seen in Shaad Ali’s film ‘Mister Mummy’ after a 10-year gap.
