Actor Genelia D’souza has rubbished reports that she has been banned from the southern film industry due to her non-cooperative attitude
A media report said that the Movie Artistes’ Association (MAA) of Andhra Pradesh announced that the actress, who has been working in the southern industry for the past eight years, hasn’t sought a lifetime membership with the association despite repeated reminders from the association. Reacting to this on Twitter, she wrote: “It’s not nice when people make you a target only because you are strong enough to take it. With no bans or notices issued against me, there’s no reason why there should be this hoopla created.”
“I have been travelling constantly over d last few months n hence have informed some1 from my production 2 hand over all d papers w d required amount. When I signed up 4d south Indian association 4 movie artists I was promised that it would cover all 4 industries n that is also what d body states (sic),” she further posted.
Down south, the actress featured in movies like Boys, Bommarillu, Santosh Subramaniam and in Bollywood she made it big with Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na. After that she did Hindi films like Life Partner, Chance Pe Dance and Force.
The 24-year-old hopes people would understand her side of the story. “I hope people would understand the truth and stop making this an unnecessary battle. I’m very happy n proud that I belong to five industries and hope people understand that,” she tweeted.
