Actress Neetu Chandra is known to us for being glamorous and sensual from films like Yaavarum Nalam, Theeradha Vilayattu Pillai etc. However, the actress seems to have another side to her in which she is a top class Taekwondo fighter. Recently, she got awarded the 2nd Dan Black belt and became one of the first ladies in India to do so.
She says, “Grandmaster Jimmy is popularly known as the Father Of Taekwondo in India, and I’m glad I was honoured by him. I was told that I’m the first Indian actress, even woman, to receive the award. I’ve learnt this form of martial art, and have even represented India in Taekwondo championship. It’s a shame I haven’t been able to continue practicing this art form.”
She also revealed that she has done some stunts in Aadhi Bhagavan, her next project directed by Ameer.
She says “In Aadhi Bhagavan, I’ve performed some kick-ass stunts. In fact, I’m hoping to tie up with a martial arts academy in Tamil Nadu to spread awareness about self-defence among women here.”
Now that’s two good stories inside one for us. We will have to wait and see what Neetu Chandra was talking about when Aadhi Bhagavan hits the screens during upcoming months.
