Since her introduction to Bollywood in the 1997 movie Pyaar Kiya to Darna Kya, it seems that Neha Dhupia has gone from strength to strength. Even though there’s a new girl on the block each Friday, Neha has managed to consolidate her status in Bollywood. With successes under her belt such as Qayamat, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, Mithya and Shootout at Lokhandwala, she has proven that she can tackle a wide range of roles. But it was her 2003 role in Julie that earned her the title of a sex symbolIt was her part in the 2003 movie ‘Julie’ that earned her the title of ‘sex symbol’. But the former Miss India quickly worked to get rid of this image, and finally things are changing for her, much to her delight.
“I’m happy with the kind of films I am getting, and, yes, the ‘sex symbol’ tag that I had got after ‘Julie’ is fading,” she explains. Her most recent film, Singh is Kinng, has stormed the box office.
The actress has been doing 3 to 4 films per year and has spoke out about being secure with the workload. Neha, who just turned 28, has a flurry of films coming up such as Maharathi, Raat Gayi Baat Gayi, I Am 24 and Paying Guest.
It seems like Neha has successfully made the transition from any other sex symbol to a successful Bollywood starlet.
