So yes, I am working towards quality stuff, but unfortunately, not a lot of offers came my way the way I wanted it to be.
“I surely deserve to be in a Shah Rukh Khan- or a Salman Khan-starrer film. But my talent has not been utilised in the cinema properly. Since I do not come from a film family and have no Godfather, of course, my journey is slow, but steady,” said Neetu.
