'I will never be satisfied with my work'

Neha Dhupia, who has spent around a decade in the Hindi film industry, says she will never ever be satisfied with her work and that’s how it should be.

Neha, who was in the City recently as a judge for Delhi auditions of an upcoming reality TV show Superdude on UTV Bindass, says she is proud of all her films and cherishes each role but is not satisfied.

“I have come a long way. It’s been eight years and I value and cherish everything I have done. As far as satisfaction is concerned, I will never be satisfied. That is right the way to deal with any career not just acting. When you start feeling that you have done everything you wanted to, in a way you hamper your own growth,” she says.

Neha made headlines for her bold avatar in Julie in 2003 but is not interested in its sequel.

“I have turned down Julie’s sequel because I don’t feel the need to be a part of it,” she shares with Metrolife.

She agrees that she did make news initially because of her bold entry into the industry but now insists on being known for her acting. Ask if she has managed to break her bold image, she replies, “It doesn’t bother me. As of now, I always think of being known as a good actor, bold or not.”

Neha, who was last seen in Kabeer Kaushik’s Maximum opposite Sonu Sood, is all set for her next release, a crime thriller Rush, in October.

“I am playing the role of a woman who is into media industry but is not a journalist,” says Neha, who was appreciated for her role in Dasvidaniya, Singh Is Kinng and Phas Gaye Re Obama.

She was accompanied by Ashmit Patel as a judge for the show in which he will mentor 13 selected boys on how to woo girls. What kind of men she would fall for?

“He must have a lot of charm and great personality. I wouldn’t mind a fair amount of external appearance,” she laughs.

Neha has spent a decade in Delhi. A graduate of Jesus and Mary College, Delhi University, she says she loves everything about the City except that it is a little orthodox when it comes to women. “I am a Delhiite and relate with it in every sense. I just wish it was more open-minded culturally, and safer for women,” she sums up.
