Ac­tor Neelu Kohli’s ex­cite­ment knows no bounds as her new Pun­jabi film, Kitty Party, is a fe­male-fronted movie that nar­rates the jour­ney of four women. Ac­cord­ing to the ac­tor, the in­dus­try mostly churns out films that have men in the fore­front, so in a way, her film high­lights the chang­ing sce­nario.

“Pun­jabi films al­ways see male ac­tors in the fore­front and in the male-dom­i­nated in­dus­try, women end up be­ing just a small part. But Kitty Party is dif­fer­ent in the way it is about four women. It’s a fe­male-fronted film that we are hop­ing would open doors for more such movies,” says Neelu, who will be seen in both In­dian and western avatars in the film, which also stars Upasana Singh, Anita Dev­gan, and Gur­preet Ghuggi.

Neelu, who was last seen in Man­marziyaan, and TV show Naamkarann, is not tak­ing any long-term projects. The ac­tor shares that her daugh­ter, Sahiba Kohli, is get­ting mar­ried in Fe­bru­ary. So as soon as she fin­ishes shoot­ing for Kitty Party, she will start pre­par­ing for the wed­ding cer­e­monies.

“I would take a break be­cause that much time would be re­quired for my daugh­ter’s mar­riage. Soon af­ter, I might take up film, TV and web show of­fers. This time, I have de­cided to take up char­ac­ters that are sub­stan­tial. I have no qualms in play­ing a neg­a­tive char­ac­ter as long as it adds to the plot. It’s time that I take up more chal­leng­ing roles,” adds Neelu.
