Neha Dhupia with Emraan Hashmi in Raftaar!

Actress Neha Dhupia whose last release was Dear Friend Hitler, will soon be seen opposite Emraan Hashmi in Raftaar.

The film about media manoeuvring was directed by Shamin Desai but his sudden death brought it to a halt. It is now being released by Percept Pictures by the end of this year.

"I am very excited about my upcoming film Raftaar opposite Emraan Hashmi. It was good working with him. He is a great actor," Dhupia told PTI.

Her solo career hasn’t taken off in the industry with flops like Sheesha, Julie, Ek Chalis Ki Last Local but Dhupia has found a place in multi-starrers like Action Replayy, Mithya, Phas Gaye Re Obama and Dasvidaniya’.

The actress, however, is happy with the way her career has taken shape.

"I do films which have soul and don’t just blindly run behind money and big directors. I do work which I think is good and satisfies me. I think at the end of the day that is what matters. I know people who work in 100 crore budget films but are not to be seen after that. I am happy the way my career has shaped and with the kind of work I have done." The actress also feels that success is not limited to box office.

"I don’t know how to categorise success. My films might not be a hit at box office but some people watch it and like it. Isn’t that success in its own way? I don’t let myself down if my movie doesn’t do well, if I lose faith in myself no one will stand by me," Dhupia added.

Talking about the failure of My Friend Hitler, she said the Indian audience are not ready for such films. "The film was great and I had put in all hardwork in it. I just think our audience is not ready for such scripts."(PTI)
