Neha Dhupia says no to skin show ...

imageMumbai, June 3 (IANS) Actress Neha Dhupia has decided to avoid roles that require her to expose unnecessarily on screen and refused quite a few offers.

Neha's refusal led to speculation that she has become extra careful about her choice of roles, reports Bollywood Trade.

"I am looking at working with those makers only whom I can count upon for being aesthetic in their depiction of roles. I have realised that even the slightest of exposure, if not portrayed aesthetically, can send wrong signals. I don't think anyone should have a problem with that," said Neha.

Her about-to-be-released films and her forthcoming films are a result of this policy decision.

"It is a transition that I have achieved over a period of time starting with 'Kyaa Kool Hai Hum', followed by 'Siskiyaan', 'Garam Masala' and now 'Chup Chup Ke', releasing soon," she added.

However, she clarifies that saying no to skin show does not mean she has given up on looking hot and glamorous.

"It is the need of the hour and you can't afford not to be glamorous in this age. There's a new word called 'hot' that has been coined by the industry and any actress worth her substance has to qualify for this word. I don't intend to do otherwise."

Neha's bold and sizzling performance in Deepak Shivdasani's "Julie" gave her the tag of a 'hot and sexy' actress, who had no inhibitions about exposure on screen.

Besides "Chup Chup Ke", Neha has two other films, "Ek Chaalis Ki Last Local" with Abhay Deol and "Delhi Heights", a love story with Jimmy Shergill.
