Neha Dinesh Anand is currently winning hearts for her participation on Temptation Island India. Neha, in her own words, was born to act! and her debut film ‘Joon’ is receiving critical praise and appreciation all over the world even before its official release. Neha opens up about the film and its success all over the world.
Expressing how she feels about the film receiving numerous awards already, Neha says, “It’s fascinating to witness “Joon” garner numerous international awards, signalling a breakthrough where language is no longer a barrier, gaining acceptance from global audiences. The recognition at prestigious film festivals in India boosts a film’s reputation before its release, generating excitement for audiences eagerly anticipating its debut. I’m thrilled to fulfil my childhood dream of becoming a Bollywood lead actor.”
Elaborating on her character after which the film is named, she says, “I play the character of Joon, a free-spirited girl who’s an adventurous sports instructor. Together with my father, we run a hill station resort. I believe in love and old-school romance, dreaming of a movie hero who will sweep me off my feet and marry me. What convinced me to take on this film is that the director saw me as Joon in real life. I’m excited for you to watch the movie and see me playing myself.”
Neha describes the theme of the film as a search for true love, “The film explores the theme of discovering “the one” in a love story. To delve deeper into the concept, the writer and director, Barnali, who has an extraordinary perspective on love, will be the one to provide more insight into the narrative. The storyline of the film is how the right person meet at the wrong time it’s a sort of love triangle”
Sharing a special memory from the sets of the film, Neha says, “During a 3 am shoot after an afternoon scene in a chestnut forest, I indulged in 30-40 chestnuts. As a big foodie, I kept eating, but the raw chestnuts caused a motor-like noise in my stomach throughout the night scenes. Surprisingly, nobody reacted as they didn’t want to miss the lighting, so I continued enjoying chestnuts the next day.”
Neha ends by expressing her excitement that the film will be screened at the prestigious Golden Jury Film Festival again, “I’m thrilled that my film is being screened at the Golden Jury Film Festival again. While trying to manage my excitement, I’m uncertain if I can attend due to the show commitments, but the anticipation is high,” she ends.
