He says, “When I started modelling, it was sort of coming of age in India. Everyone who became a model at that time was idolised and I saw that happen to me also. That’s not the case anymore. If you are a good actor now, you get the opportunity. So, you don’t have to be a model first. “
Meanwhile, Actor Genelia Deshmukh recently opened up about her 10-year break from the movies. On Kareena Kapoor’s chat show ‘What Women Want’, where she was invited along with her husband, actor Riteish Deshmukh, she said she took a break from movies because she had been working a lot in various film industries and the couple “had a long distance relationship” so once they got married, Genelia wanted to “prioritise differently.” Many believed that since the Deshmukhs were a political family, they had asked Genelia to stop working in the movies but she said that this was not the case and that it was a choice she made herself and Riteish completely supported it.
