If you thought Neetu Chandra is talented, think again! The actress is giving talent a new meaning, by being a master of all she surveys. Being a Black Belt 2nd Dan; a basketball player; a kathak dancer; a harmonium, flute, as well as tanpura player, is not enough, the multi-faceted actress from Bihar, has now gone a step ahead and is learning Tamil.
The story goes that a director from the South has approached Neetu two weeks ago to act in his film. Since he wasn"t comfortable talking in English or Hindi, he wanted her to work on the language and become fluent in it. “That"s the time I instinctively decided to learn Tamil," says Neetu. “I hired a tutor next day who now coaches me in the language for about two hours every day. He talks to me in Tamil and I write down the words in English and Hindi and then, reply in Tamil," she says.
Ah, as we said earlier; some people can go to any extent to master everything they survey. Three cheers to Neetu Chandra and her determination.
