In the coming months, Neetu Chandra is looking forward to turning the tide in her favour. The process of doing so started in 2009 itself when she featured in quite a few dare bare shoots, including one which featured her in a two piece bikini. While controversy was the middle name of her photo shoots, Neetu knew the direction she was taking and the destination that she had in mind.
"This is the reason why I don't regret anything that I have done in the past. My funda is simple, if you have the body, you flaunt it", declares Neetu who wore a swim suit in her very first film GARAM MASALA and followed it up with an out and out performance based outing like TRAFFIC SIGNAL.
"See, till the time I did all these photo shoots, not many people were noticing me. I was giving a lot of good performances but even big directors told me straight on my face that they were apprehensive whether I would be able to carry myself in T-Shirts and Jeans, let aside any revealing costumes. They thought of me as a 'behenji'", Neetu gives out a smile here.
Result was a complete change of image that Neetu brought about in months to follow.
"My bikini shoot was an answer to all these film makers who didn't know me well", says Neetu with a sense of pride, "Now the very same people started noticing me and went like 'Oh my God, this girl is indeed hot'. Yes, I am happy that finally the image turnaround has happened though I really regret that earlier they chose to judge me entirely on the basis of the roles that I had done."
