'Actresses tend to lose their market very fast'

Nina C George, Aug 30, 2013, DHNS :

Aspiring star

Practical :   Neha Hinge

Neha Hinge never intended to become an actress. She completed her engineering and got herself a plush job in a software company. But thanks to her height and good looks, she struck gold when she tried her luck at modelling and bagged ‘Miss India-International’ in 2010.

It was writer, director and producer Madhur Bhandarkar who discovered Neha and that’s how she got offered the lead role in Love U Soniyo. Neha
recalls that her father encouraged her to give it a shot.

“Acting just after modelling was a new challenge and I thought I could give it a try.
I must say that although I was new to the industry, I didn’t feel out of
place. There was great support from family, co-actors and friends,” Neha tells Metrolife. 


Neha attributes her successful launch in Bollywood to her hard work and feels that one should give one’s all to the task at hand. She dubs her
debut as a learning experience and says, “I am a software engineer and working in films was never there on my mind.

But when I finally signed a film, I realised how much of hard work goes into just looking good.” Neha makes it a point to watch at least three or four films a day. “I am a movie buff and I pick up some new ideas from every film that I watch,” she adds.

Unlike a lot of newcomers, Neha has not let the name and fame get to her head. She knows that nothing lasts forever and is grateful that she has a career in the software industry to fall back upon if things don’t work out well for her in the film industry. “I know that there are plenty of ups and downs in the film industry and nothing is permanent. Actresses tend to lose their market very fast,” she notes.

Neha hasn’t signed any movie just yet. “I believe that every project that you work on defines and shapes your career. I don’t want to sign projects just for the heck of it. I would like to take my time,” she signs off.
