Kolkata, Sep 12 (IANS) Bollywood star Neetu Chandra says she has no desire to go size zero and believes in toning her body according to the need of the film she is working in.

'I really like the look of the outfit I am wearing. Though I am a very casual of kind of person I carry myself according to the place I am going to,' Neetu said.
The actress has half a dozen films lined up for release this year and is presently shooting for a seventh in South Africa, for Anees Bazmee opposite Sanjay Dutt.
Mandal whose collection featured black and white western wear, said he used only natural fabrics.
'I used handloom, linen and silk and the prints were hand batik.'
