'I know my limits'

'I know my limits'

This time Neetu's bathing scene in Apartment, where what she wears is hardly visible, is in the eye of a storm. “Can you wear a lehenga on a beach or a bathing scene and wear a bikini in a marriage scene. If the role demands that I wear a bikini, I will and I do it with a lot of conviction. I know my limits,” she asserts.

Neetu Chandra has always stood up against rumour-mongers and gossip, “Let people wag their tongues. I just don’t care. As an actor you have to be able to mould yourself into just about any role. People here talk about making it big in Hollywood but you just can’t stand a kissing scene here in Bollywood. That’s hypocrisy. Isn’t it?”she wonders.
 In Apartment, Neetu plays a character who suffers from bipolar disorder. This young lady comes from a small town and moves into a City. She soon begins to feel insecure and lonely. She slips in and out of multiple affairs and finally she’s devastated enough to seek revenge and goes on a killing spree. “It’s a thrilling experience. There’s loads of suspense,” she says.

Neetu thinks that there’s a dearth of cinema that can provoke the audience to think and reason in a different manner. “But no producer will be willing to sink money into something as risky and no director will take a chance in dabbling with something he or she is not sure of,” she reasons. The audience will not go to the theatre to watch a movie unless the subject and the characters involved are compelling enough, she observes.
Neetu’s immersed in the production of her first Bhojpuri movie. She’s also shuttling between the shoots of her latest projects which include Khusar Prasad Ka Bhoot, Love Jaisa Kuch and Anees Bazmee's No Problem. Neetu’s spare time is set apart for her basketball and meditation — the two hobbies she adores.
