Neha Dhupia recently gave her costars and crew of I'm 24 panicky moments after she collapsed on the sets due to sheer exertion. Concerned, director Saurabh Shukla gave her a break of three hours before resuming the shoot.
The winner of the Miss India Universe title in 2002, Neha debuted in Bollywood in Qayamat: City Under Threat. Quite early in her career she played sexy roles in films like Julie and Sheesha, which flopped at the box-office. However, her performance in Chupke Chupke was much appreciated and the 26-year-old is now more comfortable in romantic comedies.
Beauty contests, the actress believes, are a gateway to the film industry but they don't guarantee success. Guess, Neha is speaking from her own experiences.
