There were attacks on Indian students in Australia in the recent past. But Genelia D'Souza says she finds Melbourne a safe mutli-cultural haven and she likes a lot shooting in the exotic locales in and around the Australian city.
Says the actress, who is shooting in Melbourne for her 'Orange', “I personally think it's a great city. I feel safe here. There are always some unsafe places everywhere in the world and not just in Australia.”
Singing paeans on the beauty of the country, she says, “Australia is amazing. The real beauty is that it is so multicultural and so cosmopolitan. You can see different people at one place here. I have had a lot food.”
On the attacks made on Indians, she says, “It is sad that some violent incidents have happened in Australia and Indians have been targeted. But I feel very safe. I have been riding on the trams and enjoying the multi-cultural cuisine on offer.”
Madhavan to team up with Genelia in ad!
Genelia, who is currently acting in a Tamil film titled 'Uthamaputhiran', opposite Dhanush, recently met Bronwyn Pike, the Education Minister of the State of Victoria and told him she is enjoying exploring the city.
Last year, Airtel aired ad campaigns that were close to the heart! The commercial with Vidya Balan and R. Madhavan performing as a couple gave the much-needed emotional touch and connected well with audiences. Now Genelia D'Souza will feature with Madhavan chatting love in all Airtel advertising campaigns.
Genelia's bad luck?
Poor Genelia D'Souza! The only reason people keep talking about her these days is in context to Riteish Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandes.
But if anyone has noticed, the perky actress seems to have become quite a favourite for brand endorsements. From selling mobile phones to shampoos to aerated drinks, Genelia can be seen in a number of commercials on television. Sadly, nobody has noticed that. Now high time we see the gal in some good film as well. Chance Pe Dance and Life Partner don't exactly count, do they?
GENELIA IN AUSTRALIA
Genelia has been camping in Australia for the past few days to shoot for the Telugu flick Orange. Though the situation in Australia is turning tense with racist attacks on the Indians, Genelia finds it a safe place.
In an interview to a popular daily, she has stated, “There are always those pockets of unsafe places everywhere in the world. I personally think it's a great city. It is sad that incidents have happened in Australia and Indians have been targeted, but I feel safe here.”
The actress had a meeting with the Education Minister of the State of Victoria, Bronwyn Pike.
