It has been a while since Genelia D’Souza signed a new film. While her Chance Pe Dance is all set to arrive in a few days from now, she is also waiting for a couple of other films of hers to hit the screens. Her David Dhawan directed Hook Ya Crook (where she is paired opposite John Abraham) has been delayed incessantly.
That’s not all as even Anees Bazmee’s It’s My Life with Harman Baweja has been in the wings for quite some time with the principal shooting over close to six months back. Even earlier, her Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa was pushed by more than six months before it hit the marquee. Isn’t that frustrating?
"If a delay means better release date then I am all for it. You know, so much hard work goes into the making of the film and sometimes the makers just release a film abruptly without giving much thought to factors like market conditions, screen availability, an adequate hype and buzz. Thankfully this hasn’t happened with me and looking back at Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa experience, I am doubly confident that a good marketing and promotional plan is so very important. I am willing to wait as long as my films continue to do well", she smiles away.
One can understand her positive stance. After all Genelia D’Souza would be beginning 2010- all set to be an eventful year for her in Bollywood – with Chance Pe Dance and one can foresee that her film looks good enough to hit the bull’s eye. More so because quite a few romcoms in recent times have been doing fairly well, especially with Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, Love Aaj Kal and her own Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa being the hugest examples to substantiate the claim. In such market scenario, it seems like the safest bet to follow the trend and Chance Pe Dance just about fits the bill.
A UTV Motion Pictures production, the film sees Genelia and Shahid Kapoor pairing up for the first time on screen. The film is enjoying a solo release on January 15.
