MUMBAI: It has been a dream of Neetu Chandra to be romantically cast opposite Sanjay Dutt. And the actress flew to South Africa on Wednesday, to shoot for Anees Bazme’s latest where she has been given the dream role to be Sanjay Dutt’s love interest.
Chandra in her excited chatter said, "This is a big moment for me. In the next 15 days I will be reliving a dream that I have always wished would come true. It is not every day that such roles are offered, but I sincerely believe that I have worked hard to achieve this. I have taken all the harsh criticisms about my weight positively and have shed 6 kilos for this film. Since I am an athlete, it meant that I had to lose some muscle mass which is not easy. But because this role means so much to me, I have put in everything."
With success has come in some good money. Neetu has also shifted home to the more trendy location of Lokhandwala in the Andheri suburb of Mumbai.
Although the actress was cheerful about her career growth, news that her father was affected by cancer, hit her hard. She said, "My father had cancer in the mouth and he refused to leave his home in Patna to come to either Delhi or Mumbai for treatment. So I flew a doctor to Patna who has successfully operated upon him and thankfully, he is on his way to recovery."
Neetu can now perhaps shoot for her latest film with a clear mind knowing that her father is well and at the same time, enjoy seeing her dream come to life.
