Kannada actress Neetu, who is currently busy with the shooting of an item number in Kannada remake of Telugu hit Dookudu, has bagged Pooja Gandhi's Abhinetri. The actress will be seen essaying the role of 70s heroine.
It is reported that Neethu will be playing Pooja Gandhi's rival in the film, which also features Atul Kulkarni and Markrand Deshpande in the significant roles. Abhinetri, which is considered as the comeback movie for Pooja is directed by Satish Pradan.
Talking about her role in the film, Neetu said, "As artists, we play many characters. But it's not often that we get to play ourselves. I enjoyed playing a 70s heroine. It was fun sporting beehive buns and high-waisted langa-dhavani. Besides, Pooja and I have done many shows together and share a good rapport."
It is said that as the film features an established actress like Pooja Gandhi in the lead role, it made other heroines feel that their cameo would go unnoticed and that it wouldn't be a wise move to do the role.
Beside playing the title role, Pooja Gandhi is also producing the movie with BS Vyjayanthi. However, currently Pooja is also busy with the shooting of Thipajji Circle.
