Genelia may be banned

Actress Genelia D'Souza might face a possible ban from the Tamilnadu Artistes' Association for not becoming a member of the association even after five years as an actress. Genelia started out featuring in an ad for the product Fair and Lovely. Impressed with her performance in the commercial, director Shankar cast her in 'Boys' and then the floodgates opened for her. She then starred in many Tamil, Telugu and Hindi films. Genelia paired with Vijay in the film 'Sachin' and then tasted sweet success playing a naïve and yet sweet girl in 'Santhosh Subramanaiam'. The Tamilnadu Artistes' Association had in fact informed her to become a member many times but failed to receive any communication from her. An official letter has now been sent to her underscoring the point of a possible ban. Many of the actors who featured in 'Chennai 600028' have also been dispatched letters as they too have not yet become members of the association.
Interestingly, actresses Nayantara, Trisha and Priyamani became members very recently after pressure for the association
