Shabana Raza, who made her Bollywood debut with the film, almost made everyone crazy about her innocence from the very first film. The actress worked with big actors like Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgan in her short Bollywood career, although the actress was lost in the industry only after a few films. Today, on the special occasion of the 46th birthday of the actress, let us know some special things related to her life-
Neha did not want to work in films
Shabana Raza aka Neha never wanted to work in films. In this interview, the actress said in an interview to Rediff, “I did not want to work in films.” I was studying in Delhi and was happy. He saw me on TV and offered me to work in films. They followed me. I was not interested in his offer, so I turned down the offer. Later the makers talked to my parents and convinced them. When I worked for a few days, I liked being in front of the camera. I started to feel that acting is my dream.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra gave the name Neha
Shabana Raza made her Bollywood debut in 1998 under the direction of Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Bobby Deol was in the lead role with him in this film, which was his third film. After the film was over, Shabana took her name as Neha at the behest of Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Her character name in the film Closer was Neha, which had become her real name.
I was forced to change my name- Neha
In an interview to Rediff, the actress said that she was pressurized to change her name. The actress said, I was never Neha, always Shabana. I was forced to change my name. It was not good for me. My parents had very proudly named me Shabana. There was no need to change the name but nobody listened to me. Let me tell you that after gaining recognition by the name Neha for many years, the actress returned to the film Alibaug with her real name Shabana Raza.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra had his hand chopped off when he gave the shot wrong
Some time ago, an interview given by Bobby Deol went viral in the year 2001, in which he told a shocking anecdote about the film. Actor told, Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra was very strict with newcomer Shabana Raza (Neha). Vidhu used to scold him constantly. Nobody said anything to Bobby because he was Dharmendra’s son.
The actor further said, for a scene Neha had to come down from the mountains and give me her right hand, but she was constantly getting confused. When he extended his straight hand even after giving many takings, Vidhu asked Neha to cut off his straight hand. Neha did the same but despite this she could not raise her right hand. Angry Vidhu himself cut his straight hand with teeth. The strange thing was that even in the final shot shown in the film, Neha directly extended her hand.
Life partner found in Manoj Bajpayee
Neha met Manoj Bajpayee shortly after the film. The superhit film Satya of Nirj and Manoj was released in a span of one month. In a few meetings, both of them became friends and then love. The two got married in 2006 after dating each other for several years. Manoj and Neha have a daughter named Ava Nayla. According to the actress, she feels the most beautiful feeling in the world to spend time with Manoj.
