Neha’s Phas Gaye Re Obama Wins in New York Film Fest

US President, Barack Obama is on his Indian tour, whereas filmy Obama, “Phas Gaye Re Obama”, featuring Neha Dhupia, Amole Gupte and Rajat Kapoor, has bagged the Viewer’s Choice Award at the SAIFI film festival that concluded in New York last week.

Two other films of Neha films of Dhupia’s, I’m 24 and Pappu Can’t Dance Saala, also premiered there. Phas Gaye Re Obama is scheduled for release on December 3. Dhupia is also making her debut as a singer in it. She had reserved an entire day for the rap song but wrapped it up in 15 minutes, leading writer-director Subhash Kapoor to say that she was truly talented.  Neha said,

“I told him I didn’t need to sing to prove that. For an urban girl to convincingly carry off the role of an underworld don in a small town was enough.”
