Neetu also shared that a big casting director from Bollywood once rejected her only an hour after auditioning her which made her question his intentions. “A casting director, who is quite famous but I don’t want to take their name, told me within an hour of the audition, ‘I am really sorry Neetu, this is not working out.’ You literally audition me to reject me so that you can kill my confidence,” she said.
In another part of the interview, Chandra broke into tears and questioned if the worth of someone’s work is appreciated only after their death. When the interviewer asked if suicidal thoughts have crossed her mind, she replied in the affirmative.
In October 2021, Neetu Chandra had spoken to indianexpress.com about her Hollywood debut Never Back Down – Revolt. She told us, “Being a Blackbelt 4th Dan in Taekwondo, I was confident about this role. I was prepared for the hardcore action sequences and chose to do them myself without any body doubles. I rehearsed for hours to perfect the sequences. The film sees me doing different forms of martial arts, especially Taekwondo. As an actor, we always aspire to do something new, and this was my shot at it.”
In a chat with Bollywood Hungama, Chandra said that her story is a “failure story of a successful actor”.
