She might have played a variety of roles in her Hindi and Tamil films, but Neetu Chandra says portraying the role of a village belle, that too, in a Greek film, was a thrilling experience.
The actress, who plays the lead in Kyriakos Tofaridis’s Home Sweet Home, says, “I play an Indian girl who is being pursued by three men. We decided to go completely rural with the look, and everyone on the sets totally loved the way I’ve been presented. I get to wear a bindi, nose ring and typical north Indian attire. It’s a different experience playing a girl from a small village in a foreign language film.”
The film is slated to hit screens in December. “It will be screened in several festivals before that,” she says and adds, “I’ve dubbed for myself in Greek for this film. After learning Tamil, I find it easier to speak in other languages. Greek has no tongue-twisters, and is more like English.”
