‘Gandhi to Hitler’ turned me mellower than ever: Neha Dhupia

Neha Dhupia who plays a very significant role of Eva Braun in the upcoming movie ‘Gandhi to Hitler’ is feeling nostalgic.

"It did break my heart when the movie was over. I was extremely involved in the way I portrayed Eva on screen. She was someone who was quite flamboyant with Hitler's soldiers and was forever in a happy and positive mood. For me to put her to rest was something really difficult. That's because behind that exterior of being intrinsically happy and charming, there was certain sadness and romanticism which she kept for themselves. After I was through shooting for the film, I could see myself turning mellower than ever," says Neha.

As the movie is a biography Neha Dhupia did intense research on her character before the shooting.

"When I went through the script, I was conscious about the fact that I was Neha, an actress while here she was a German lady, a close confidante of Hitler. It isn't easy to step into the shoes of such historical personality. I had to go through history, pick up whatever images or footage that were available of her and try to get an idea of what she must have been in real life. I had to work hard as an actress and make my own version of the series of incidents that would have taken place then. I tried to bring myself as closer as possible to Eva before it actually started making sense. Now the final verdict is with the audience”, she added.

The movie that also feature Aman Verma and is being directed by Rakesh Ranjan Kumar will release this Friday.
