One of the popular actresses of the 1970s and 1980s, Neetu featured in a string of hits like KHEL KHEL MEIN, PRIYATAMA, DEEWAR, KALA PATTHAR, DOOSRA ADMI and KABHI KABHIE. Her last major film was YAARANA (1981) with Amitabh Bachchan. She last made a blink-and-you-would-miss appearance in Imtiaz Ali's LOVE AAJ KAL (2009). However, DO DOONI CHAAR is the film that marks her proper comeback into the world of films. So what was the trigger point after all, one wonders?
RISHI KAPOOR and NEETU SINGH in DO DOONI CHAAR
Says Neetu Singh, "My kids are doing good now and are settling down in life. Riddhima got married while Ranbir too is doing well for himself. He is going in the right direction. There are good roles being written today and this is when I decided to give acting another shot."
However, instead of making a quintessential big-bang comeback, she decided to give nod to a relatively smaller film titled DO DOONI CHAAR where she is required to play a middle class Punjabi housewife from Lajpat Nagar, Delhi.
"DO DOONI CHAAR is quite interesting. It is a meaningful light hearted entertainer. Rishiji plays a Mathematics teacher while I play his wife and a mother of two grown up kids. My clothes too have been designed on the lines of those that are typically worn by women in this part of the city," she smiles.
Directed by Habib Faisal (who makes his debut with the film), DO DOONI CHAAR currently has plans to release all over on 8th October.
