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."
How badly 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 film.
