In the recently held Police Diwali Mela at the Andheri Sports Complex, Mumbai, Neetu Chandra pulled all stops as she turned Britney Spears for the evening. She appeared on stage in an out and out Western outfit with chains et al, a la Britney Spears. While compliments did pour in for her wardrobe, what was also noticeable was her dance act which made many stand up and take notice.
Neetu Chandra reveals about her evening out, "Yes, I did perform at Police Diwali Mela and danced to the number 'Oop Cha' from DRONA. It is a funky track and gave me a platform to showcase my dancing abilities."
Except for GARAM MASALA where she still had a few dance numbers to her credit, her subsequent films like TRAFFIC SIGNAL and ONE TWO THREE haven't quite allowed her to dance in front of camera. Though she loves dancing, she is still waiting for an ideal project to come along where she could show this facet of hers as well.
"I guess till then stage would continue to be my best friend", smiles Neetu, "At the function, I got a chance to shake a leg or two on medley of my songs of GARAM MASALA like 'Ada' and 'Dil Samandar'. My performance ended with the title song of OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE which is anyways a rage currently."
Apparently, ever since the show ended, Neetu has been flooded with enquiries around her availability for many more dance shows across the country. Will she oblige with a performance?
"It all depends upon how occupied I am at that point of time. I have 45 movies coming up in near future and I need to be there for promotion of each of them. Also, I have certain set criteria before I say my 'Yes' to performing in a show. It has to be prestigious and an event of repute. If something like a Diwali Mela where I just participated comes in again, then why not?"
