After being part of Bhojpuri, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu films, actor Neetu Chandra has debuted in a Greek film in which she plays an Indian Goddess of Love.
Titled Block 12, the film directed by Kyriacos Tofarides, has been included in the Cinema of the World section of the International Film Festival of India this year. "This script was written five years back. This is my first international film and I play an Indian Goddess in the film. It's a beautiful love story," Chandra says.
Block 12 is based on the issue of how big powers manipulate the resources and people of the country. The film is a political, allegorical comedy.
When asked about the difference she found in filmmaking in India and Greece, the 29-year-old says, "Every industry has its own ups and downs but people over there are much more disciplined. They start shoots on time. But the film industry in India is much richer than theirs."
When asked why he chose Neetu, Tofaridez said, "My co-producers are in India and they suggested that I sign someone from India and then I selected Neetu."
