‘People Advised Not To Marry Riteish,’ Genelia

“Honestly, when I got married, I was very clear that I wanted to spend some time with my family. I had worked so much before that, people might not have seen me much in Hindi cinema but in South cinema, I literally worked 365 days of the year hence, I felt like I needed that kind of a break. I wanted to give my family priority and then I had babies, one after the other, so it was my time with my family, which I wanted, and I am glad I am in that age of the film where all of that doesn’t matter anymore.”

“When I was getting married, I had people telling me that, ‘Oh, you are getting married for a girl, your career is done.’ I heard everything but I was clear that it is not going to stop me from marrying because I wanted that. I think but now I see a very positive change in the industry, where the content is evolving. There is a lot of work that artists and actors get which are not star-driven, or monotonous. There is a lot to do today as actors.”
