Neha Dhupia shares her experience of working in `Chup Chup Ke'

If a swimsuit shot Neha Dhupia to fame with her debut film Qayamat, the role of a sex worker marrying a businessperson (played by Priyanshu Chatterjee) in Julie stamped on her the label of a dare-bare baby. This time she turns an interpreter in Priyadarshan's Chup Chup Ke.Neha plays Meenakshi in the film. She says, "Actually I play the cupid or the confusion in the film. The tag line for the film is `love meets confusion meets love'. That way, if Kareena and Shahid Kapoor are the love, then technically I should be the confusion," she laughs. The film deals with disability in undertones. For which Kareena Kapoor had to learn the sign language. But not Neha. "Because I play her cousin, her best friend as also her interpreter. Let me please clear that it is not a film on disability in the real sense. We are not showing them as caricatures. They are people who are part of the laughter and not the people we are laughing at. It has been handled very sensitively and in Priyan Sir's style of comedy.I don't know why it is said that two female actors can't get along well? Kareena and I got along so very well. She came across as a wonderful human being. There has been no conflict on our respective scenes in the film."She recalls, "Making people laugh is not an easy business especially with Priyan sir who does not like to have many re-takes. He prefers to have only one take."Now Neha has two films, 1:40 Ki Last Local and Delhi Heights. RANA SIDDIQUI
