The 34-year-old 'Phas Gaye Re Obama' actress is a fan of Johar's films and wants to be directed by him in a glossy entertainer.
"I feel lucky that I got to work in Dharma Productions film. It is fantastic to work in Karan's production and I love his films. He is on my wish list of all those directors I want to work with. I love his glossy entertainers. I would love to be directed by him in such a film. I really liked his 'Student of The Year'," Neha told.
Johar was one of the reasons Neha signed 'Ungli', directed by Rensil D'Silva and co-starring Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut and Randeep Hooda.
"I had more than one reason to be a part of this film, it has a fantastic producer, an amazing director and a lovely cast. Emraan, Kangana and Randeep are such chilled out people that it is easy to bond with them. We all are easy going people so it was a lot of fun on the sets. I am glad to have done 'Ungli'," she said.
The film is also special for Neha as she is playing a journalist for the first time on the screen.
"It was not an easy character as there is a specific way of how journalists present news. They speak in monotone, without showing emotions, which as an actor I found difficult to achieve because we are used to express in every line but here I had to be indifferent even if I was giving news of someone's demise," she said.
