We have had a number of Punjabi actresses but none has managed to stay in our hearts as Neeru Bajwa has. A career spanning for more than two decades, she has indeed conquered this industry in her own way. Not having music as her background, it is strange that this actress stands at par with the leading men of Pollywood.
Who knew that a girl who was born in Canada will be so powerful in making us feel proud of our own Punjabi culture! From an actor to a director and producer, Neeru is also a mother. A lot of women have been seen disappearing from the silver screen, but this lady we have in our industry, has aced everything with such grace and perfection.
Beginning her career in 1998 with the Bollywood film Main Solah Baras Ki, she went on to star in a number of Hindi TV series. Her journey in Pollywood began with Manmohan Singh’s directorial Asa Nu Maan Watna Da, and well, we all know there has been no looking back for her since then. Of all the movies she has acted in, most of them went on to become super-hits. This relation of Neeru Bajwa and hit films has become a trend now and it is not just that we are exaggerating her performance, she has actually proven it to her fans, always.
From love stories to comedies to family dramas, her experimenting with different genres can be seen from the names of her movies. She has worked with some of the finest actors of Pollywood like Harbhajan Maan, Jimmy Sheirgill and Binnu Dhillon to also most of the new age actors as well like Diljit Dosanjh, Gippy Grewal, Roshan Prince, Harish Verma, Ammy Virk, Amrit Maan and many others.
Putting everything aside, the very fact that she played a real-life pregnant lady in Channo-Kamli Yaar Di overpowers her every achievement. Her hard-work and dedication can be ascertained from the fact that she did not decide to delay the shooting of the film but instead took the call to put in more essence and reality to the story of this film that had a pregnant lady as its protagonist. Kudos Neeru Bajwa! More power to you and women like you who are determined in their goals and aspirations. Not only did she act in this film, she also produced it. This is one of its kind Punjabi film which has a female in the role of a lead protagonist and does not revolve around any slapstick comedy.
Since 2011, Neeru has won Critics Best Actress Award once, Best Actress Award three times, and she has also been nominated in the same category five times. So, this Pinky Moge wali has seen it all, she has seen success, failure, awards, and nominations. Being a role model for a number of upcoming Punjabi actresses as well, she is extremely humble and a down-to-earth personality. Years have passed by, but not even an inch has she aged. Still given to play the character of a young girl, it is a proof of the fact that she has maintained herself very well.
Neeru Bajwa will now be seen in an upcoming film titled Aate di Chidi, in which Amrit Maan will be her co-star. Delving into how our generation has forgotten the little joys of the past and its traditions an cultures, this film will take one back to one’s memories of childhood. We hope Neeru Bajwa continues being the Queen of Pollywood and she continues giving us more films and motivating all the women out there to be strong and dream-oriented.
