"You know, one can't really plan these things", Neha replies after a pause, "Personally for me, earlier it was all about taking up 'a project' but now it is about taking up 'good projects'. I am being extra careful about the projects I am a part of."
And what is her criterion for a project to be good?
"The role has to be good whether it is big or small", pronto comes her reply, "Also something about a project in itself has to be good. It should make sense either cinematically or commercially. Eventually it should work with its target audience. My funda is clear now - either be a part of a good film or a good project. Nothing really comes in between this."
Is this the reason why she is continuing to balance her films well?
"You can say that", smiles Neha, "I have films like Raftaar and De Dana Dan with Emraan Hashmi and Akshay Kumar/Katrina Kaif respectively. On the other hand there are also films like Raat Gayi Baat Gai and I AM 24 with Rajat Kapoor. So it's all happening!"
