Hyderabad: Actors tend to face unpalatable situations in life. When Neha Shetty was asked about a recent such incident that went viral, she said, “We face them and we move on; it’s over and I don’t want to talk about that episode. I’ll just let go.”
The incident, which occurred during the trailer launch event of her upcoming movie ‘DJ Tillu’ spread like a wild fire with netizens expressing disgust over the cringe-worthy question that was posed to Neha’s co-star Siddu Jonnalagadda.
As the comedy romantic entertainer is scheduled to hit the screens this Friday, the Mangalore girl spoke about her role in the movie and her choices in life.
Elaborating on how she would face the trolls on social media, Neha said, “Everyone has their opinion on social media. I look at life as it happens, I think people think differently with different thought patterns. I can’t change them and tell them it’s mine. I let everyone live. Accept everybody’s opinion. I don’t take social media trolls so personally.”
After being a Horlicks girl pan-India, the Mangalore-born made her debut with the Kannada film ‘Mungaru Male 2’ before she was introduced to Telugu audiences by Puri Jagannadh in the ‘Mehbooba’, alongside Akash Puri.
“After ‘Mehbooba’, I took a brief break of six months and flew to New York to study a film course. Came back only to be greeted by the pandemic-induced lockdown. Later, I fetched a female lead in ‘Gully Rowdy’ and also landed a small role in Akhil Akkineni-starrer ‘Most Eligible Bachelor’. Now, I am happy that ‘DJ Tillu’ is creating good buzz,” she says.
Neha is happy with the way Telugu industry is treating her. Shettys have been enjoying good reception in Telugu cinema. Starting with Anushka Shetty, the recent sensation Krithi Shetty and now Neha Shetty. “I think Shettys are accepted very well here. Usually from Mangalore, later they moved to Mumbai,” she said and added that she always wanted to be an actor ever since she watched Hrithik Roshan on television.
“Mom is a dentist and dad is a businessman. If I want to get into acting I’ve to create my path; I don’t know anyone from the industry. I was two years old when I watched Hrithik on television, and I still remember it,” she added.
Neha portrays a girl-next-door character named Radhika. “Now because of the trailer, I am being known as Radhika Apte. The best part that I liked in the movie is that Radhika is an honest and confident girl. It’s a new-age character because the traits that she possesses I could relate to the character very much. I liked the Telangana slang in it. Not many movies have come with such an entertaining narrative. Of course, now the trend is starting to pick up in Telugu cinema. But the story is very fresh and has a new-age vibe. It’s a mass entertainer with hilarious dialogues which are quirky and fresh.”
