My biggest flaw is that I am sexy says Neha Dhupia
Bollywood Actress Neha Dhupia had once famously remarked that only Bollywood Actor Shah Rukh Khan and sex sells in Bollywood but now it seems that Neha Dhupia is now tired of the ’sexy’ tag, which she believes has worked against her.
Neha Dhupia, a former Miss India, who started her Bollywood journey with some bold roles like Qayamat and Julie, now finds that despite having tried hard and done some very serious roles, she hasnt been taken seriously in the bollywood industry because of her ‘hot’ and ’sexy’ image.
Neha Dhupia in an interview to the PTI told “I sincerely believe that the term ’sexy’ is always used against me,”.
The Bollywood actress had to work really hard to get over the “Julie” nickname that she earned for herself after playing a very dare bare portrayal of an Indian prostitute in the namesake film in 2004.
Neha Dhupia adds “None seems to realise that I can do a lot more. Why don’t people remember Dasvidaniya, Singh Is Kinng, Mithya, or a Maharathi.”
Ask her about the bollywood actresses who’ll do anything to trade places with her and pat comes the reply, “The Interesting fact that we forget is that grass looks like greener on the other side.”
“I strongly believe that my biggest flaw is that I am sexy. Just because of that, it is always safely presumed that I would be busy out there seducing people on screen,” Neha Dhupia says.
The 29-year-old bollywood actress, however, is happy about the compliments & credits that she has earned for her recent success in comic caper movie De Dana Dan. She is currently looking forward to the audience reaction towards her forthcoming Bollywood release Raat Gayi Baat Gayi.
Neha Dhupia’s very first shot in debut “Qayamat” saw her emerging from sea wearing a swimsuit and her next release was Julie, which despite its success has placed the bollywood actress in a bracket from which it has been a difficult task to come out.
Her subsequent Bollywood releases like Sheesha, where she has played the role of a seductress and Teesri Aankh – The Hidden Camera, where she played a porn film victim, didn’t help her cause either.
Neha Dhupia decided to come out of her ’sex siren’ image by accepting a strong supporting role opposite Kareena Kapoor in Priyadarshan’s Chup Chup Ke.
“It was Priyadarshan who came forward to help me change my image. When the entire world was after me to wear a bikini, he put me in a salwar-kameez,” Neha Dhupia says.
“The problem is that no one realises I can do a lot more. Thankfully films like Ek Chalis Ki Last Local and Mithya followed that helped me showcase a different facet of my acting talent,” she adds.
Neha Dhupia plays an aspiring actress Sophia, a femme fatale in her forthcoming film Raat Gayi Baat Gayi. Her character is like a jigsaw puzzle in the film, which slowly unfolds through a series of interesting interactions with the men (Rajat Kapoor, Vinay Pathak, Dilip Tahil) she meets.
So, is she happy to be playing a sexy seductress again?
“What makes you think that I am a seductress? May be I am a victim myself in that party. Yes, in the film’s context, I do flirt and have a drink with others around. But then may be I am a ‘poor-little-vulnerable-I-don’t-know-what-to-do’ Neha Dhupia than being a sexy seductress Neha,” she jokes.
Don't Forget to say Thanks
