Genelia Deshmukh: I have not changed after marriage

The actor says she is still the same person, albeit with a new name

While we still love her and think of her as Genelia D’Souza, the pretty actor now goes by the name of Genelia Deshmukh. Cho chweet, no? Looks like all those gossipmongers who claimed that Riteish’s parents were unhappy with his choice of baiko – as hubby dear calls her – were just trying to create trouble for the sweet gal.

All you Genelia fans can rest easy: her name is the only aspect of hers that’s changed. Talking about life after marriage at the launch of her new show The Chosen One on UTV Stars, Genelia said she is the same person she always was. “Everyone said this will change, that will change, but it’s the same. I feel like I am the same person after marriage.” And we can attest to that. In her first media interaction after her wedding, she was as cheerful and bubbly as she used to be. She smiled her way through the question-answer session and when a journo asked her why she chose Riteish to be her hubby, she blushed and said, “He is the best.” Aw, so cute!
