After traveling extensively for her film shoots and endorsements, Neha Dhupia was recently on a much deserved break at her birthplace Cochin

The actress says “I went there after almost 15 years. Yet, its magical each time I come here, the backwaters there were simply amazing”. She meets CS for a quick chat.

No sick leave
I was recently training for a marathon and ended up injuring my leg. Though I am fine now, I am not in perfect shape. Yet, nothing should be an excuse for an actor, the show must go on. I walked on the ramp for a fashion show with my injured leg, I had requested the designer to cover my leg with fabric to conceal the injury.

Film fare
I am pretty excited with a couple of films in my kitty. I am working with Karan Johar and Rensil D’silva whom I have a great regard for. I will be playing the role of a journalist in their production, the film has a cool, young feel to it. Before saying yes to a project, I ask myself if I would want to watch it in a theatre. My upcoming releases are exciting because I am sure that they will get a good audience in the theatres.

Social conscience
Education and sports are field where a lot needs to be done in terms of providing good facilities. Encouragement is needed for sports so that more people can participate and emerge as winners. I do my best by contributing to different causes by going for awareness events and activities undertaken by the association I am working with. It helps in educating underprivileged children from all over the country.

The right man
There are no pre-requisites about the ideal man I would like to marry. I don’t want to have a set criteria and then settle for someone who is the complete opposite of it. But once I make a decision, I would definitely tell the world. For me a sense of companionship is very important. I would like to marry a guy whom I can be friends with.
