She then revealed that when she left Delhi, there were only movies and no one was doing TV shows. ”Working as a female lead in movies is a dream for many including me but I didn’t get a chance to work in any movie. From that point, I decided to do small roles in TV shows and I loved it”, Neena said.

Neena is very close to her journey of TV shows. She believes that TV shows have given her name, fame and money. Talking about her personal life, the talented actress tied the knot with a New Delhi-based businessman Vivek Mehra in a close ceremony and only family members were present at that time.

After that, it was the year 2017 when she decided to join the big screen again and show her talent. From that point forward, there has been no looking back for her. Neena made her comeback with the movie Badhaai Ho and it was super successful at the box office.
