Mumbai, Feb 6: Actress Neha Dhupia, who is playing the role of a underworld don’s muse in her upcoming movie Mithya, says she is open to ‘shedding off’ her clothes if the role demands so.
“I don’t mind shedding off my clothes, if a character demands me to do so. If the role justifies it, definitely I am going to take it off.” Neha, off late, has been playing a lot of de-glamorised roles but that doesn’t damper her spirit to be bold.
“I don’t know how people have perceived it in India, but in places like Brazil or US, it is relative. Skin show or even the slightest exposure, if not portrayed with heart, may send the wrong signal,” she adds.
The actress, who is popularly known as Chhotu among her friends, is all upbeat about her soon to be released movie Mithya also starring actors Naseeruddin Shah, Ranvir Shorey and Vinay Pathak and is in all praise for their acting.
“It was a great experience working with such wonderful actors from whom I have learned a lot. They have all given a power packed performance in the movie in which I am playing a muse ‘Sonam’ of the underworld don Ranvir Shorey.”
Neha, who came into limelight with her controversial statement that “Only sex and Shahrukh sell in Bollywood’ still abides by it though she feels that good script and acting also make head turns. “Today, good script and acting sells and not just sex alone. I still abide by my earlier statement. After Julie’s success, several other sex-based films were made but none of them did well because audience was fed up with it,” says Neha.
