Genelia says the wonderful climatic conditions in Pollachi makes her feel like home in paradise.

Genelia seems to be really having a ball shooting in Pollachi, she reportedly plans to settle there in the days to come after her currently busy shooting schedule for Vijay starrer Velayudham produced by Aascar Ravichandran.

She had recently been in Australia for her shoots in ‘Orange’ and seems to be enjoying all the traveling.

Velayudham is rumored to be a remake of the Telugu smash hit Azad, which had Nagarjuna, Soundarya and Shilpa Shetty playing the lead roles.

Genelia will play Soundarya’s role, which happens to be that of a journalist in Velayudham.

According to the script :

Genelia D’Souza is completely frustrated with the misdeeds of a criminal named Deva, who covers himself as a staunch follower of Bhagavath Geetha. But what the society doesn’t know about him is that he is a real troublemaker in the society.

One day Genelia witnesses a gang of bad guys involved in a car accident. Apparently, Genelia develops a fictional character Velayudham and he is the cause for all the heroic acts to follow. The rest of the story rests on Velayudham’s character.
Well we made out that was so much like the plot for the original movie.

So we assumed bubbly Genelia will accept the fact too.

Did Soundarya’s role in any way influence your performance?

“My director asked me not to see the movie for the fear of being influenced by the role”

We asked her if she ever saw Soundarya’s starrer Azad ?

“See, I basically hail from Mangalore in Karnataka. Soundarya is also from my state. How do you expect me to not to see any of her movies? I have seen many movies of her in both Kannada and also Hindi”she reveals. Looks like she is Soundarya follower.

Did Genelia just hint there that she has already seen the movie, well everything will be on screen for you to decide. It’s just a matter of time. Let’s wait and watch.
