Salman Khan, the superstar of Bollywood, attended the event as chief guest. The actor looked handsome in a basic blue tee and black jeans with a clean shave look. Bollywood power couple Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza made their presence felt at the event. Genelia was a sight to behold at the pre-release event of Vikrant Rona. The actress chose to sizzle in a beautiful black floral printed short bodycon dress. The look was completed with big hoop earrings and minimal makeup.
When asked about her journey in South films, Genelia D’Souza, ”Well, I am back. I had a great time working down south as well as working in Bollywood. Everyone’s been saying it’s just a device that’s probably manipulative and created and spoken a lot about but it really isn’t that because when I’m there I had a great time when I’m here I had a great time. I personally believe that it’s a journey. I mean films are the journey. We don’t really do the film for the end result. I mean we love it if it’s all in our favour. But it’s also the number of people you meet on the way, the friends you meet on the way, and I think that’s most important.”
Genelia worked in hit films like Satyam, Sye, Ready, Bommarillu, and Dhee, to name a few quit acting after tying the knot with Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh. Now, she is all set to come up with a Telugu film.
