Genelia D’Souza, happy birthday!

The B-town bubbly girl was born on August 5, 1987

The Bollywood star who recently married into the political Deshmukh family, celebrates her birthday today. Genelia D’Souza turns 25 and we hope Riteish is planning something really special for his wife tonight.

Genelia began her acting career in 2003 with Tujhe Meri Kasam opposite Riteish Deshmukh, which fared below average at the box office. Besides being a popular name in Bollywood, Genelia established herself in South cinema, which began with the hit Telugu flick Boys. The bubbly actor also did films in Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam. Genelia is known for her comic timing and vivacious nature on and off screen. She received her first Filmfare Award in 2006 for her work in the Telugu romantic film opposite Siddharth titled Bommarillu, which also earned her critical acclaim.

Genelia’s last movie before marriage was Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya and she is currently shooting for It’s My Life – the Hindi remake of the Telugu film Bommarillu. BollywoodLife wishes the star a very happy birthday.
