Neha Stepping into Angeline’s Shoes


After grabbing a role of Eva Barun, Neha Dhupia now wants to step into the shoes of Angelina Jolie and do a ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’ but the actress laments the lack of action-packed roles for women in Bollywood.

The 29-year-old actress, an Army school pass-out, Neha says,

“I am an action movie freak and longs for doing some herself. Action gives such an adrenalin rush. I feel women doing action is just so cool but nothing is happening in Bollywood right now,”

“One of the areas where Indian film industry really lacks is the fact we have very few action oriented roles for women. I hope that changes sometime in the future. I hope messages like these which I am sending can act like feelers.”

The model-turned actress has already enjoyed a stint with Hollywood after working in two American TV series– ‘Price Of Beauty’ with Jessica Simpson and ‘Bollywood Hero’.

Neha said,

“I am looking forward to interesting scripts coming my ways. Not every day you could get to do an Angelina Jolie role but some time in future I would really want to do it.”
