For Neetu, it’s NY call­ing

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - MEDHA SHRI DAHIYA

Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Neetu Chan­dra (above) has flown out to New York, to at­tend the week-long In­dia’s In­de­pen­dence Day cel­e­bra­tions there. In­ter­est­ingly, she will be at­tend­ing the event in the ca­pac­ity of ‘grand mar­shal’, we are told.

“This hon­our is huge and I have been kicked about it ever since I got the in­vite. I am glad to rep­re­sent In­dia on a grand plat­form, I couldn’t have asked for more,” says an ex­cited Neetu, who also be­came the brand am­bas­sador of Taek­wondo of In­dia, ear­lier. Re­port­edlty, she holds two Dan black belts in Taek­wondo and has even rep- re­sented In­dia in the 1997 World Taek­wondo Cham­pi­onships in Hong Kong.

But the ac­tor swears by yoga to stay fit. “Yoga is my core ex­er­cise. I have to do it daily to feel re­ju­ve­nated or else I can’t seem to think straight. So as soon as I landed here, I hired a yoga guru. And I am glad, for I need some peace around me and yoga is the per­fect way to bal­ance mind and body,” says Neetu.
