Neetu is a local Patnaiya from Patliputra who passed out from Notre Dame in 2001 and did her college from IP in Delhi. She has done dozens of ads and video films for reputed firms since her graduation days in Delhi’s IP College. “I am thrilled to have bagged the lead female role,” Neetu told TOI on phone from Mumbai. She plays the character of an innocent street seller from a small town of Rajasthan in the movie.
Ironical though it may sound, Neetu says her USP has been the fact that she is a Bihari. “People laugh the moment you say you are from Bihar,”she says, adding she is hardly bothered. “I have studied in Delhi, but I always introduce myself as one hailing from Bihar,” says the upcoming actress who, incidentally, has also been a Taekwondo champ.“Bihar has given several renowned artistes, but unfortunately it’s known more for politics and poverty,” the Bihari bala laments and adds there are many an aspiring model and actor from Bihar who are struggling to make their presence felt in Bollywood, but they usually hide their identity.
Neetu’s father, a businessman, was initially reluctant to let her pursue a career in the glamworld. But her mother, Meera, stood by her. Not surprisingly, Neetu attributes her success to her mother, a native of Raxaul in Bihar.It seems Neetu has all the punch for being a true cool bihari girl….
