Neetu Chandra has gone ahead and done what majority of other leading ladies are doing today i.e. kissing their leading man for a film.
After being in the industry for close to 3 years, she has shared her first on-screen lip lock with Abhay Deol. No wonder, Deol would be all pleased and call himself 'lucky' as this happens for their upcoming flick Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, which, in sweet and simple manner, can be termed as OLLO.
Confirms a source on condition of anonymity, "Yes, Neetu indeed has a kissing scene in OLLO. She has always believed in doing whatever it is best for the film. She didn't think twice about sharing screen presence with two other girls even as stakes were so high for Garam Masala."
She goes on to add, "Later she grabbed the opportunity when Madhur Bhandarkar finalised her for Traffic Signal. It was a big departure for her to get into a non-glam role after a playing an airhostess in her debut film. When everyone was still contemplating around her next move, she took the risk of being one of the four heroines in One Two Three. Now everyone knows that she was the one who stood out most in the role of a Jat cop. This is why when she was told that OLLO would require her to kiss Abhay Deol, she was game for it. She doesn't believe in creating any unnecessary fuss!"
Over last few months gone by, there also have been murmurs about Abhay and Neetu being an item. Wouldn't that too have aided in making her decision easier?
Laughs the source, "Well, off screen and on screen intimacy are two different things. While I don't want to comment on the kind of equation that Neetu and Abhay have in real life, I can say for sure that on screen they do manage to sizzle. The kissing scene would surely catch many unaware."
In OLLO, Neetu gets to play a typical Punjabi girl belonging to Delhi whose wardrobe comprises of casual T-Shirt and Jeans. From an airhostess costume to a 'kathaiwadi' outfit to a police uniform and now T-Shirt and Jeans - Neetu seems to be doing it all!
Led by Paresh Rawal from the top, OLLO is a UTV Motion Pictures production and is aiming for a release during the festive season of October.
