Neetu was selected for the relay, owing to her active association in sports. Apart from being a regular basketball player, the actress is a Black Belt 2nd Dan, having participated in various martial arts tournaments at a district, national, as well as international level.

"The Commonwealth Games promote international integration, so it was a huge honour for me to sprint with the torch. I got goose bumps in excitement," she exclaimed after the run. "The Queen's Baton felt like a 'power baton' and gave me a different kind of high. It was a mix of pride and responsibility," Neetu added. Way to go, girl!
