In 2014, Neil Nitin Mukesh grabbed plenty of attention when he played the villain in Kaththi and delivered a mature performance. Directed by ace filmmaker AR Murugadoss, it featured Vijay-Samantha Akkineni as the lead pair and did well at the box office. Now, nearly four years, the actor is playing the antagonist in Prabhas’ next big film Saaho. Talking about being a part of the action-thriller, he said that the film is shaping up quite well and added that he is currently preparing for its action scenes. The David actor also said also praised director Sujeeth and said that he is a terrific individual.
“Saaho is shaping up really well. We are now preparing for action sequences of ‘Saaho’. Sujeeth is very good. He is only 26 years old but is a brilliant director. I gained weight for ‘Saaho’ but now I have to reduce that. I am finding it a bit difficult. But I think that transformation will be fun,” he added.
Speaking of playing a negative role again, Neil said that he has no qualms about the same as it has helped him carve a niche for himself.
“So it doesn’t make difference to me. As an actor, I feel you need to have conviction when you go out there. At least, I am glad that in the aspect of negative roles, I have carved niche for myself,” added the star.
Well, we wish Neil good luck and hope that he delivers a solid performance in Saaho.
Interestingly, Saaho also has Bollywood star Shraddha Kapoor in a key role and is slated to hit screens in 2018. However, it could get postponed to 2019 courtesy extensive production work. The team will soon be taking off to the Gulf to shoot some action sequences.
