She has delivered a big hit down South and would now be seen opposite Emraan Hashmi in her debut Hindi film CROOK. Still, newbie Neha Sharma insists that her family refuses to treat her star and instead keeps her grounded.
"Mine is a close knit family and we are four siblings", informs Neha who originally hails from Bihar and has lived for a long time in Delhi, "There are three sisters including me and then one brother. We all love each other and so the adage of WE ARE FAMILY pretty much fits in here."
"In fact it was only at the release of my first film that my parents realized all the glamour surrounding stars", she gets nostalgic here, "In fact I wasn't aware about the enormity of it till I stepped into the premier. Of course all of us were thrilled. My parents were very proud of me. See, time and again we head stories about how families are not supportive of their kids doing movies. In my case though, it was different. I can talk about everything with my siblings. They are equally excited about me making a Bollywood debut."
After the release of CROOK, she plans to go on a vacation with her family. "There are family holidays coming up for me", she gets excited here, "I am sure though that they won't treat me as a star there."
