It is common news that Neetu Chandra is doing a twin take by playing the role of Tusshar Kapoor as well as item girl Lara Dutta in the Telugu remake of Raj Kumar Santoshi directed KHAKEE. The film is called SATYAMEVA JAYATE and is directed by Jeevita Rajasekhar. However, the latest news is that she was party to a little mishap yesterday as she severely twisted her ankle while performing an action sequence during the film's shoot.
Confirms Neetu, ''It has been quite severe and my ankle is totally numb at the moment. There are bouts of pain but Rajasekhar, who plays the role enacted by Amitabh Bachchan in KHAKEE, has given me some drops to reduce them substantially. He is a doctor as well so it's helping.''
Isn't she feeling like taking some rest?
''It would be professionally unethical to do so'', says Neetu, ''There are lot of actors required for the current shoot and it would break the combination dates if I opt out. Its ok, this happens. In any case, this is not happening for the first time with me. Earlier during the shooting of ONE TWO THREE, where I played a cop, I had injured my leg. I guess I am used to such small accidents on sets, especially when I am in uniform!''
Life has been quite hectic for Neetu who is hopping from one city to another in next few days.
''Yes, from here I move to Jamshedpur, Ranchi, Gwalior all over the country in fact'', smiles Neetu, ''It's good to be busy. I have films like OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE, FLAT NO. 13B and KUSARPRASAD KA BHOOT arriving in the coming months and I guess the journey has just begun.''
