The artiste is going to present Nari Pranam - An ode to womanhood. Nari Pranam expresses reverence to a woman with its repertoire of pieces strung beautifully together, each piece depicting a different shade of womanhood. We see her as a young woman pining for her beloved, a mother worried about her daughter, a playful flirtatious young girl and a loving queen in awe of her little one. Neha easily gets into the skin of the character she is trying to depict and the viewer is amazed at the unfolding of different chapters in a woman’s life, so true to reality.
