The ‘Sa re Ga Me’ girl has always been in talks, be it because of her movies or because of the controversies she gets herself into. But not to forget she has contributed immensely in tamil, Telugu and Hindi. She is usually picked by Directors to portray the role of a cute girl, college going one etc. Here’s a quick look back on Genelia D’ Douza’s Tamil flicks.

The actress made her debut in Tamil a decade ago, in 2003 with Boys.The movie although had all new faces like Siddharth, Bharath etc, the movie ofcourse was a blockbuster hit and the person who deserves the maximum credits is ofcourse Shankar for the stunning visuals – in every song , and the well narrated script. This definitely landed to be a lucky charm for Genelia as offers came pouring in for her. She was casted with our Ilayathalapathy in the movie Sachein in 2005 itself.With this movie , the song ‘Gundu Manag thopukulle’ brought out the unseen side of Genelia. Sachein ofcourse made a good collection in the theatres. Follwowing this, her next stint was ‘Chennai Kaadhal’ with Bharath directed by Vikraman but this movie did not really create a rage as expected.

But with Santosh Subramaniam releasing in 2008, things turned better for this actress. She was widely appreciated for her kiddish role that she carried out with ease. She was even complimented by many for her improved looks. The song that became a hit from this movie was ‘America yendralum Aandipatti yendralum’.  After a year’s bareak, she was seen with Dhanush in the movie Utthamaputthiran and needless to say, the track ‘Kan Irrandil’ sung by Naresh Iyer became a huge hit.

Genelia’s last appearance was in 2011 in Kollywood in the movie Velayudham yet again with the Ilaiyathalapathy and ofcourse with Chinna Kushbu Hansika in the movie. This movie was welcomed by all and did pretty well for her. Now we do not see her much in Kollywood but we hope she is welcomed back.
