Neha Dhupia is being dubbed as female Gabbar Singh these days, in response to her role in Phas Gaye Re Obama as Munni Madam, a dacoit who does not leave any stone unturned when it comes to using or abusing her power.
An enthusiastic Neha strikes a pose and avows: “I am not the heroine but a hero in the film. I have done everything that a hero does in the movie; including abusing and firing guns. Also, my gang performs murders and gang rape. We have done everything in the film.”The actress insists it was a memorable experience to play a dacoit. "I am surprised by myself … at how I have done this role," Neha marvels. "But I am happy to have done this film. Every time I became Munni Madam, I felt stronger than the world."
Point out that Obama’s presence in the country was a happy coincidence for her film whose title had a reference to the US President’s name and the actress remarks: “Marketing is important. It may be a coincidence or a deliberate effort, I don’t know; but it’s good. We just want that message to reach people.”
So what message would Neha give Obama if given a chance? “I would just tell him to please watch my two-hour long movie whenever he has time. Also, if possible, I would like to take Obama out for a date; let him watch my film and talk about the recession,” smiles Neha.
