Genelia D’Souza quotes
“I enjoy being a modern girl. At the same time, I’m not someone who’ll go topless or backless because I have certain values. As Indian women we just can’t take our clothes off and be so blatant.”
“As a child, I never payed too much attention to fashion. I was more interested in sports where I would put on a pair of shorts, a tshirt and my sneakers and I was out of the house.”
“I am a person who loves to chill out more than anything else. I spent my entire college life at Cafe Coffee Day at Carter Road. Even today, I have not changed my lifestyle, I still walk my way from home to the cafe.”
