Neha Sharma is a Bollywood actress who has worked in movies like Crook and Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum. The 25 year old actress was born in Bhagalpur, Bihar in India.
Neha Sharma’s father is a businessman who owns petrol pumps. She was bor As a child, Neha was asthmatic and prone to falling sick often. So, she was given more attention and pampered for, among the four siblings. Neha may have done a film in Hyderabad later but she came to this city during her childhood. She says, ” There is a family in Hyderabad who are blessed and can cure you of your asthma. You have to go to them for three years where they put a live fish in your mouth and you need to swallow it. I got completely cured and I am a believer. The asthma had gone, but the pampering remained. So they let me do whatever I wanted, be it fashion designing or films.
Neha Sharma, who bears a striking resemblance to the younger version of Angelina Jolie, was born in Bihar. She studied in Mount Carmel School and then went on to do a course in Fashion Design from National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi. She says that she also wanted to be a fashion designer and was obsessed with fashion labels
Neha did a bit of modeling and her pictures found their way into the production studios of South India. Actually, she was coaxed to do a photoshoot by her gym-instructor Maria when she would work out in GK II.
Her first role was for a Telugu film called Chirutha, released in 2007. She says that she had a tough time learning the language but the people were accommodating. Neha adds, “They wanted to make me comfortable so they would speak mostly in English. My scenes were explained in English and they wrote my dialogues in Roman English.”
Her first Bollywood movie was Crook, directed by Mohit Suri, released in 2010. She then did a camero for Teri Meri Kahani, which starred bigger stars like Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor. Neha was then cast in the double-meaning comedy Kya Super Kool Hai Hum which did an average business. In 2013, she was seen in films like Jayantibhai ki Love Story and Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, both of which flopped. Till now, Neha Sharma is still looking for an elusive hit.
She admits that it is tough to get into films and get popularity if you do not have a film-background or a Godfather. She adds, “Each time your film fails, the struggle is going to be there. I don’t think anybody looks at a failed film and says, ‘Oh the girl was really talented’. It doesn’t really matter how talented you are or how good an actor you are. I have understood this over the years. A hit film is always a good film. That’s something I believe in.”
Neha Sharma says that she is single. Though she was linked to South Indian hero Ram Charan during the making of Chirutha, she says that they had become close but they were just friends. Also, it is not possible for her to be in constant touch with him as both are from different industries and are busy with their respective work demands.
