Non-smoker Neetu Chandra has 28 cigarettes in a day!

Bollywood actress Neetu Chandra who is in Pattaya, Thailand, shooting for Tamil industry’s showman Ameer Sultan’s film ‘Aadhi Bhagavan’ is down with a curious case of introduction to smoking.


Neetu who plays the leading lady in the Kollywood film opposite Southern superstar Jayam Ravi, had to enact a scene, wherein her character smokes a lot. Though initially, this was a serious issue for the non-smoker that Neetu is, she decided to give it her best shot simply for the sake of professionalism.


While director Ameer taught her how to hold a cigarette in different ways, Neetu ended up indulging herself with 28 cigarettes before the scene was finally okayed.


“It was fun,” Neetu laughed after the day’s shoot. She wouldn’t have, if she knew that by the time this piece would go in print, she’d be taking medicines for a sore throat!!



Neetu skips Bigg Boss for Kollywood!

Neetu Chandra will skip entering the Bigg Boss house, as she has just landed herself a huge film down South.

Director Ameer Sultan, who has given the Tamil film industry three award-winning jubilee hits in a row, has signed the Bollywood actress in the lead for his next ambitious venture ‘Aadhi Bhagavan’ opposite Kollywood superstar Jayam Ravi.

“Though the Bigg Boss offer was lucrative and tempting, Neetu won’t be able to participate as she has to leave for Ameer Sultan’s shoot in Pattaya (Thailand) this week,” informed her publicist Dale Bhagwagar.

Ever since she began discussions for the Southern film last month, Neetu has been learning Tamil. Every day, a tutor has been giving her two hours of lessons, while she learns new words, how to construct sentences and improvise diction. Impressed with Neetu’s talent and dedication for bagging the role, the Southern director signed her last week.
