Actress Genelia D'Souza says that her passion for football helps keep her stamina levels high.
Genelia was a state level athlete and national level football player in her school and college days, before choosing acting as her profession.
"People often ask how a Management student and a sports person like me leads the hectic life of an actress. But, sports helps me manage my schedules in Hindi and South film industries by keeping my stamina levels high," the actress said.
"Despite being actively into sports, I did not pursue it as a profession. I did not actually chose any career, it chose me," she added.
Genelia who debuted opposite Riteish Deshmukh in Tujhe Meri Kasam in 2002, said she is not a fitness freak.
"Fitness depends on the diet and I have only home cooked food," she added.
The actress was part of online market portal eBay's <i>Dream House</i> challenge where she transformed an empty space into an attractive home with online shopping. She had a budget of Rs 4.5 lakh and two weeks to create a look she wants with items on sale on the website.
Speaking about her experience, she said one's home is an extension of one's own personality.
"We are all so overburdened with life and work that we need our own space to relax and unwind. I wanted to keep the young and vibrant look," she said adding she used red and blue to get the right feel.
Genelia replaces Asin
Guess who is finally playing the female lead in the Hindi remake of Kakha Kakha? It's none other than the chirpy Genelia.
The pretty actress has replaced Asin, who was the original choice for the role. The film will now have John Abraham in the lead and Genelia will play his love interest, a character made memorable by Jyothika.
Apparently, Asin had done the Telugu version of Kakha Kakha, which was directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, who had also directed the original.
The Hindi remake will be directed by Nishikanth Kamath, who made the Madhavan-Sangitha-starrer Evano Oruvan. According to sources, John, at the last moment, asked producer Vipul Shah, who had earlier made London Dreams with Asin, to get her replaced.
Genelia and John had earlier come together in David Dhawan's Hook Ya Crook, which later got shelved.
