Professionalism is the IN thing.
In spite of being hospitalized for a day, Neetu Chandra of
Traffic Signal and Garam Masala fame resumed shooting
for her upcoming film One Two Three at Pondicherry.
Asks Neetu with a shocked expression, "How did you get to know
about this? Yes, I did suffer a real bad injury as I slipped and
hurt my ankle. I didn't know what really happened as I was in a
state of shock and immense pain. I was taken to a hospital and my
ankle was cast in a bandage."
did it affect the film's schedule? "I couldn't even dream of doing
that to the unit. The film has as many as 14 main characters and
all of us are lodged in Poindicherry. All plans are in place. How
could I allow my injury to result in wastage of time, effort and
money for everyone involved? I asked my doctor to pronto remove the
bandage and allow me to shoot as per the schedule."
Wasn't that painful? "Yes, it was, especially since it required
me to shoot for a chase sequence. Par meri wajah se kisi ka nuksaan
ho wo mujhe achcha nahi lagta! That's why I got myself to face the
camera again. I am sure I would be all right soon," signs off Neetu
who enacts the hilarious part of a Jat cop in this Kumar Mangat
