Cool Bihari Girl

In on of my earlier posts I’d mentioned about Neetu a Patna girl who worked in Garam Masal and has been recently selected by Madhur Bhandarkar for his new movie 'Signal'.

Neetu is a local Patnaiya from Patliputra who passed out from Notre Dame in 2001 and did her college from IP in Delhi. She has done dozens of ads and video films for reputed firms since her graduation days in Delhi's IP College. "I am thrilled to have bagged the lead female role," Neetu told TOI on phone from Mumbai. She plays the character of an innocent street seller from a small town of Rajasthan in the movie.

Ironical though it may sound, Neetu says her USP has been the fact that she is a Bihari. "People laugh the moment you say you are from Bihar,"she says, adding she is hardly bothered. "I have studied in Delhi, but I always introduce myself as one hailing from Bihar," says the upcoming actress who, incidentally, has also been a Taekwondo champ.
"Bihar has given several renowned artistes, but unfortunately it's known more for politics and poverty," the Bihari bala laments and adds there are many an aspiring model and actor from Bihar who are struggling to make their presence felt in Bollywood, but they usually hide their identity.
Neetu's father, a businessman, was initially reluctant to let her pursue a career in the glamworld. But her mother, Meera, stood by her. Not surprisingly, Neetu attributes her success to her mother, a native of Raxaul in Bihar.It seems Neetu has all the punch for being a true cool bihari girl….

Chanced upon your blog while searching for some factoids about Bihar - really nice to see a blog dedicated to my home state!

I was a student at Notre Dame till class VII and Neetu Chandra was my classmate. The curious bit is that I completed schooling in 1995. Neetu could NOT have dropped six whole years to finish hers in 2001 :-D

Thanks for your comments.

Well I can't comment about the year of schooling as I came to know this through some reports.

Neetu's brother Nitin is part of the cool Bihari E-group and I'll pucca check with him.

Hey not that it matters! What's important is that she is doing so well.

In school she used to be the sports captain, and we thought she'd make it big as a sportsperson. Her foray into movies was a surprise!

Wish her all success; may the tribe of Cool Biharis increase :-)

Hey that's Ok.But tell me something about yourself.I can only see anonymous comments.

Since I passed out during the same time and I know lot of folks from Notre Dame :-)

I'm sure you'll enjoy being part of our Cool Bihari group.

i used to study in NDA patna and had a classmate named neetu chandra, she was an ace sportsperson and had always been winning medals etc! but thins one says she passed out in 2001 when i did in 1996... is this the same neetu!! a much glamourized version tho! great stuff to see her there, if this is the version i once studied with!
