Television these days is something big and everyone is open for it. The latest actress who is all set to debut on TV with B. K. Modi's Buddha is Neha Kaur Uppal who has done a film titled "Sher" which is still unreleased.
She says, "Acting
was on my mind since my theater days back in my hometown Jabalpur (M.P)
, where I had participated in various inter collegiate competition. So
after the reality contest on MTV, I started meeting producers for movies
I got a warm response and got the role of a married Muslim girl in Soham Shah's Sher."
"The film was 80 percent
complete and stuck. I started looking out for work and through audition
I got this role. I was pulled in by the passion and the commitment of
Dr B.K. Modi and Ridwana towards Buddha. Their conviction and dedication
was infectious and rubbed off on me in no time. It's like being a part
of their family. I entered the television world
since the boom in television is exponential, also I think I wanted to
come out of my comfort zone too and flex my acting muscles which had
become rusty," she adds further. READ: Neha Kaur Uppal replaces Sonia Singh in Buddha
about her role she says, "Amrapali is person where everybody fell
victim to her beauty and when she finds someone who does not do the same
she takes it as a challenge . So the only way to play out that
challenge is to seduce him. For Buddha I underwent a rigorous dance training for five days. It's a challenging role and Buddha team is fantastic to work with. "
On being asked about her background she says, "I have worked as an
anchor on TV channels for 3 years among which I have reported and
anchored a show on
Ndtv Imagine Showbiz called 'No Biz Like Showbiz" in which I have had the opportunity to interview the Business fraternity of Indian and Pakistani film industry. In my diverse portfolio I have been crowned Miss Mumbai
05 and Maharashtra Queen
05. I have also Participated in Miss India in 2006. In 2009 I won a
reality contest called Mtv Fast and the Gorgeous which made me travel
with Force India (Formula One Team) for almost 3 yrs as a Speed Diva."
