From the film world to a podcast show, judging television non-fiction entertainers to running a marathon — Neha Dhupia is doing it all. The actress and former beauty queen says entering the film industry was an adventurous step she took around 20 years ago, but staying relevant during all these years has been quite a task. Neha, who made her screen debut with a Malayalam movie in 1994, and forayed into Bollywood with “Qayamat: City Under Threat” in 2003, has been doing non-fictional shows like “MTV Roadies – Roadies Xtreme“, podcast “#NoFilterNeha” and other chat shows, apart from movie projects of late.
She told IANS: “There are so many TV shows that go off air within three months of their beginning. MTV Roadies is one of the adventures TV shows that has earned the credibility of 15 years from its audience. And I am the only female judge on the show. “I earned the show because of my body of work. Staying relevant for 20 years is challenging.” As for adventures in her own life, she said: “I think the most adventurous thing that I have done in my life is to become part of the Indian cinema industry, being a complete outsider. So today, when I am getting an offer of one of the longest-running youth show on Indian television, it is purely a by-product of my credible work in the industry.
