Edochie spoke in a recent chat on the ‘WithChude’ podcast.
The 76-year-old film star also recalled the “father-daughter” relationship he shares with Genevieve.
In March 2022, the actress reflected on mental health before going on a social media hiatus.
At some point last year, rumours had swirled that she was battling a mental illness.
In the interview, Edochie said he is expecting to get a call from the actress someday to know about her well-being.
“Of all the girls who have played my daughters in films, somehow it is Genevieve that I love the most,” he said.
“I came to look upon her as a daughter and she sees me as a father. She is a very brilliant lady. Exceptionally brilliant lady. And I have not heard a lot from her lately.
“Ever since I heard that she is a little disturbed, I do not know whether it is true. I hope one day she calls me to tell me and says ‘look I am okay’.”
Edochie also expressed his shock at the spate of failed marriages among Nollywood actresses.
