Vilasrao Deshmukh, the Union Minister for Science and Technology and father-in-law of Genelia D’Souza, was brought to Chennai yesterday following prolonged illness. He was diagnosed with multiple organ failures. He has been put on life-support devices.
His ailment was diagnosed in Mumbai, a year ago. Since then his family has been considering the option of organ transplantation. Last week he was admitted in Breach Candy Hospital, Mumbai, following ill health. The doctors found that he was suffering from cirrhosis of liver and non-functional kidneys.
Son Ritesh Deshmukh on Monday shifted him to Global Hospitals, Chennai through an air-ambulance. Ritesh said that they are planning for a liver transplant after his father’s vital parameters stabilize. The doctors said that since he is on a ventilator, they will have to evaluate him to see if he is fit enough to undergo a transplant.
There’s a special reason behind actress Genelia D’Souza’s latest short hairdo. It was her husband, actor Riteish Deshmukh’s idea, and Genelia was all for it because she feels he has a great sense of style.
“Riteish has a great sense of style, for sure. Actually, it was Riteish’s idea and he had for long asked me why I don’t try going short,” Genelia said at an event here Monday.
The makeover is something she couldn’t have experimented with while filming a movie.
“Normally, due to continuity issues, you don’t get the opportunity to try a different style. I thought there is a break after marriage so let me do something that’s different and new,” added Genelia, who married Riteish in February.
Talking about her style statement, she said that since her college days, she loves street fashion.
“I don’t know what’s the definition of stylish is, but what I have always enjoyed is being creative in my own space. In college, I used to have my entire hand filled with friendship bands and that used to be my style statement, be it with any outfit.
“They were of different colours and looked really cool,” said Genelia, who played a college girl in the 2008-hit “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na.”
“Then when my jeans would fade away, I would cut them off and use them as shorts or (wore) shirts tied up. So I like that kind of style and I would say I enjoy street style more when it is about casual dressing,” she added.
Actor Genelia Deshmukh is excited about donning the grease paint again after taking a hiatus from work when she got hitched to actor Riteish Deshmukh early this year. But instead of big screen, the 28-year-old will be facing the camera for the small screen, this time.
When asked of the two mediums, small screen and silver screen, which is better, she says, “To begin with, I love films. Having said that, in today’s time the reach of TV is immense. The small screen demands a lot of time and I wanted to give my 100% to this show, that’s why I chose it now because I don’t have other appointments, otherwise it would’ve been crazy.”
Talking about her personal life, Genelia says she is enjoying her marital life. “Life after marriage is superb and I’m enjoying every bit of it,” says the actor, whose last film was Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya.
