enjoyed all of my time, and now its back to hectic Television
schedules." laughs the actress.
On the new show Neha stated, "I am
playing the protagonist, who's a lawyer, who is very close to an
elderly person, who treats her like his daughter. His family has spread
out all over the world, and he lives alone. This girl calls him Babuji,
and is quite close to him. Post his death, she discovers his
will that states that the only way that his family can get his
property is, if they all come and live together. The family members
plan to take the money and get back to their lives. It bottles down to
this girl who tries to keep them together. There are many twists and
turns along with that, which the audience will see along the way."

This show is something quite different and exciting and am truly looking forward to it..."
