One can always vouch for Neena Gupta’s acting skills and personality because they never fail to impress. She has made us all relate to her characters, cry, laugh, sing and dance with them. Neena has been a part of many family drama oriented films and very soon, she will be seen in  ZEE5’s Dial 100, and this time her character will be unlike the ones that she has played before.

Dial 100 is an upcoming thriller drama film helmed by Rensil D’Silva and bankrolled by Sony Pictures Films India in collaboration with Siddharth P.Malhotra and Sapna Malhotra. The film will star Manoj Bajpayee, Neena Gupta and Sakshi Tanwar in the lead roles.

As per a report on Mid-Day, Neena says-

When the casting person called, I was told it’s a negative character who wants to take revenge. I told him point-blank that I didn’t want to do it. I don’t like doing negative roles because once you do it, you get bracketed. But my manager convinced me to hear the narration, explaining how the character’s arc develops. That’s when I realized it’s not an [all-black] role, but one that has many shades.

Dial 100 is slated to premiere on Zee5 and I’m looking forward to watching this movie.
