We know that Genelia D’ Souza dons the role of female lead in the ‘Khaakha Khaakha‘ Hindi remake, ‘Force‘, and the original Tamil version had Jyothika. The film has John Abraham essaying protagonist whilst Surya played lead in the Tamil version. But the actress’s character in the Hindi version is not exactly that of Jyothika‘s in the Tamil original, as some crucial changes have been made.
While Jyothika played Maya, a school teacher, Genelia is playing the role of a social activist, who is always there to help the needy. “Though Jyothika‘s role is a well-written one, the makers of the Hindi remake felt that Genelia might not fit in a teacher’s shoes,” say sources.
Confirming this, the ‘Santosh Subramanyam‘ and ‘Sachin‘ actress says, “Yes, some important and interesting changes have been made to the original script. And that includes a complete overhaul of my character. I play a social activist and am thrilled to do the role.”
When asked whether she had watched ‘Khaakha Khaakha‘, Genelia says, “Yes, of course. I had watched the Surya–Jyothika starrer many times. Jyothika had beautifully enacted the role and I would like to repeat the magic, but in a totally different way.”
