Neetu Chandra, made her theatrical debut with Umrao — as the title character, courtesan Umrao Jaan — is looking forward to performing in Dubai, which will mark her first stint on an international stage.
She says, “I am more or less acquainted with the audience in our country. But there, I will encounter different kinds of people and I find that exciting. At the same time, I am feeling nervous as well. Besides Dubai, shows are also being planned in the US.”
Neetu says the stage has made her more aware as a performer. “Unlike films where you get breaks during the shoot, in theatre, you live that character continuously. And that has made me alert as an artiste,” she explains. Neetu will also start shooting for her films. “There are three films that are expected to hit the floors soon,” she says.
