"I don’t think comedy is difficult. It all depends upon how the director guides you. It becomes easy when you are working with good directors. Moreover, I don’t doubt my capabilities as an actor,” Neha, who showed her comic streak in films like Singh Is Kinng and De Dana Dan, told IANS.
"Comedy is a genre that offers complete entertainment, so I never hesitate to take it up. When you are working with directors like Anees Bazmee (Singh Is Kinng) and Priyadarshan (De Dana Dan), you are bound to perform well."
Neha, who won the coveted Miss India title in 2002, made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with Qayamat: City Under Threat and was later seen in films like Julie, Garam Masala, Delhii Heights, Mithya among others.
The actress believes that Bollywood is a great place to work in and she can never think of being anywhere else.
“Acting is in itself a liberating profession. The fact that I can do so many different things and entertain people, keeps me hooked on to it. You can make so much difference to yourself and the people watching you - this is the best part of this profession.
“Bollywood is a fantastic place to work in. It is changing every day. I don’t think I would like to be anywhere else except for Bollywood,” she said.
Last seen in Raat Gayi Baat Gayi, Neha has a string of releases lined up this year, which includes romantic comedy Action Replayy that has Aishwarya Rai and Akshay Kumar in the lead roles, Pappu Can’t Dance Saala and With Love to Obama.
Neha has donned a completely different avatar for director Subhash Kapoor's With Love To Obama.
“I play a village thug in the film. For someone like me who likes to wear western clothes, playing a village girl was challenging. I am really looking forward to the release of this film," said the actress who has teamed up with Rajat Kapoor and Amole Gupte in the movie.
