Neha Dhupia plays Bollywood actress in US TV mini series

Neha said she was signed for the show after an audition since the series' executive producer Tabrez Noorani was a friend.
The show will be aired on IFC, an independent film channel. The three-part one-hour mini series will premiere on the US television on August 6 and Neha has been invited to be part of the premiere telecast.
Neha said her character 'Lalima' in the show is of an overbearing, typical Bollywood heroine who is known more for controversies than her acting skills.
"Its spoofy and comical. It also has elements like how talent does not always get priority in showbiz," she said.
Speaking on her films, the actress felt that 2008 was relatively a good year for her with release of films like 'Singh is Kinng', 'Dasvidaniya' and 'Maharathi'.
"Currently, I am shooting for five films- 'Raat Gayi Baat Gayi' with Rajat Kapur and Vinay Pathak, 'Action Replay' with Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai, 'De Dana Dan' with Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, 'Raftar' with Emraan Hashmi and 'Pappu cant dance Sala' with Vinay Pathak," she said.

'Bollywood Hero' also stars American comedy actor Kris Kattan. The story is about Kris wanting to come to India and star in a Bollywood movie with Neha.
"We shot in and around Mumbai. Cameos by Keanu Reeves and Drew Barrymore were shot in Los Angeles," she said.
"The series was shot in a very professional manner. Noorani is the line producer of Slumdog Millionaire. The crew did not throw any attitude. There was no time wasted," she recalled.
Neha said she will crossover to Hollywood only if she gets a good offer adding her hands were full in Bollywood.
