Now this is indeed a ‘chappar faad’ moment for Neil Nitin Mukesh. After staying away from the big screen for over a year, he would suddenly be seen all over. Reason being that he has as many as three films lined up which would release in February, March and April respectively.
“This is clearly a record of sorts and no other actor from his generation has found himself in the middle of such outing,” says a close associate, “He first arrives with David (February). After that he has 3G‘ lined up in March and a month later he would be seen in Shortcut Romeo.”
It wasn’t planned this way though but now that the makers have decided to choose this part of the year to bring on his films, the youngster is going with the tide.
“Moreover he is the central protagonist in each of these films,” states an observer, “He played a villain in his last release Players. It was way back in 2010 that he had arrived as a hero in Lafangey Parindey. It has been a rather long wait for him but now he is supremely excited to be back in the reckoning.”
Incidentally he is carrying grey shades in at least two of his upcoming films. While in David he plays a gangster, he is fighting an ugly battle with technology in horror thriller 3G. As for Shortcut Romeo, he would be getting into a quintessential South style action hero mode.
