The dream of making it big in Bollywood may have brought Neha Dhupia to the city of dreams, Mumbai, but the actress still roots for Kerala, her home.

She tells us, “I was born and brought up in Kerala. Obviously, there are sweet memories attached to the place. Its amazing water bodies made me pursue swimming in my growing years.

Over the years the place has changed a lot, there are several tall structures around the city. But I am happy the place where we lived hasn’t changed at all.

Besides Kerala being my birth place, I also love the city for its scenic beauty, amazing backwaters, the food and warmth of the people.”
