It has been a while since Neil Nitin Mukesh’s last film came out. The film where he sparred with Prabhas was his last work at the turnstiles. But he’s looking forward to theatres opening, and hopes that Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film Sooryavanshi will bring the audiences back into marquees.
“I am very excited about theatres opening up. There are many projects which have been lined up for release and I want to watch them on the big screen. Starting with my dear friend Rohit Shetty’s film Sooryavanshi. It is the right film for the theatres to start off with, as it is the kind of film that will draw the audiences back due to the mounting and the making. Films are always made for the cinematic experience and we have kind of forgotten that for a while now. We just need one film to create that kind of magic again,” he says.
The Johnny Gaddaar actor, who has worked in films like 7 Khoon Maaf, New York, Players, Jail and Wazir, has some important films coming up for release which were postponed due to the pandemic and lockdown. “I have a few upcoming projects. They are quite exciting. Everything has gotten pushed and now they will all come in one after the other,” he says, without naming any of his new projects.
The actor wants to celebrate Diwali like he usually does, but then there is a new factor to be considered — his two-year-old daughter Nurvi, who is also a celebrity on Instagram now.
“I have been celebrating Diwali of late without crackers and made it a noise-free and pollution-free event. But my daughter Nurvi is growing up and she has various questions about Diwali and the crackers. I wonder what I am going to tell her and how I am going to tell her not to burst crackers. I guess I have to get her to light a diya or perhaps just get her a phuljhadi (sparklers),” he smiles....
