Neetu Wadhwa's dream role - to play special child

Mumbai, Nov 4 (IANS) She has featured in half-a-dozen shows, but designer-cum-dietician-cum-actress Neetu Wadhwa has still not found the role of her dreams.

The actress, who is currently busy writing a script, is keen to play a special child.

"Till now I haven't got the role that I always wanted to do. All the shows I did had normal stories... you know how TV works. We don't have much exposure to perform in TV. I want to play a special child," she told IANS.

Films have been made on children with special need and Neetu feels it is high time television portrays this reality in their shows.

"It has happened with Rani (in 'Black') and Sridevi in 'Sadma'. In TV, they just show normal love stories, saas-bahu sagas. If they are showing reality, they must show this reality as well. There are so many families where special children are born. So why do we need to run away from this," she said.

"One show had come called '12/24 Karol Bagh' where they used to show someone with this (with a learning disability) problem. But later he started understanding everything. But that's not how it works (in real life)," she added.

Neetu has an old association with such kids.

"I go to this special child centre in Panvel. With these kids, their minds never develop. They live and die like this only. But yes, they understand the language of love. This is how they connect to you. I had a friend in school and her sister was a special child," she said.

Neetu is willing to put in all the hard work in case she gets to play such a role.

"It's a very challenging role. If I have to do such a role, preparation is vital," said the actress who has been part of shows like "Mamta" and "Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat". She was last seen in "Laagi Tujhse Lagan".

Talking about the future, she said: "I am looking for films. After 'Laagi...' I got offers for TV, but there was nothing interesting. It was like normal love stories."

The actress is working on a script.

"I am writing a script as well. I have just started. I have two to three ideas - suspense thriller, horror and comedy. This is for films. I am a designer and a consultant dietician as well. I am also a big time fitness freak," she said.
