In a career spanning more than a decade, actress Neha Dhupia has featured in films ranging from romance to comedy, but the actress said that she would now love to star in a sports biopic.
The actress, who is a well-known fitness enthusiast, feels it would be great to portray a true story of an athlete on screen.
"I would love to do a sports biopic. I love sports and I think it would be amazing to be a part of a true story and play an athlete. I am ready for something like this," Neha told PTI.
The 35-year-old actress rose to fame with her bold role in Julie, before turning to offbeat cinema with critically acclaimed films like Ek Chalis Ki Last Local and Phass Gaye Rey Obama.
Neha will next be seen in comedy Santa Banta Pvt Ltd. The film also stars Boman Irani, Vir Das and Johnny Lever.
Having acted in blockbuster comedies like Singh is Kinng, Garam Masala and Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, Neha said that she finds the genre easy.
"Comedy is easy. You have to react to what others are saying and it is all about the timing, the dialogue delivery. In comedy, an actor needs to be well aware of his or her part. It might be easy to do once you get it but comedy is a serious business," she said.
When quizzed on who she thinks has a good comic timing among the actresses, Neha said, "I think Kangana (Ranaut) has a great comic timing on screen. Also Kirron Kher..I think she is fantastic."
In Santa Banta Pvt Ltd, the former Miss India will be seen sharing screen space with actors who are well versed in comedy, from Johnny Lever, to Vijay Raaz, and Neha said she got to learn a lot while working with them. (Also Read: Neha Dhupia 'Always Wondered' Why Men Are Not 'Sex Symbols')
"It was such a fantastic experience shooting for the film. What I realised was, everybody, from Johnny sir, to Vijay, Boman and Vir belong to different school of comedy. They are all funny but not in the same way. It was a learning experience working with the entire team," she said.
Directed by Akashdeep Sabir, Santa Banta Pvt Ltd also stars Lisa Haydon, Ram Kapoor and Vrajesh Hirjee.
The film is scheduled to release on April 22.
