Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, the grandson of the legendary singer late Mukesh, has created a niche for himself with films like Johny Gaddar, New York, Jail, David, Shortcut Romeo. Absolutely honest and down to earth Neil however, feels he is carrying a huge burden on his shoulders. Elaborating his statement he said, "I am carrying a huge burden, the failure of my last two movies, David and 3G. I am praying hard that my next release works at the box office.”

Moving over to his illustrious family, Neil's father, singer Nitin Mukesh, wanted to become a director, but due to the sudden demise of his father, the legendary singer late Mukesh, he took to singing. Neil who has got his musical genes from both, his grandfather and father, feels one day he will take the initiative to revive his grandfather’s songs. And he is going to take help from his dad for that. With pride in his voice he says he has some very fond memories of his grandfather which he time and again heard from his father and grandmother. Unfortunately for Neil, when he was born, his grandfather was no more.

"I used to play with my grandfather's harmonium and walking stick and several of his personal possessions and my family was sure I’ll take full care handling them. They were all part of the nostalgia that we have of my grandfather. My grandfather was an excellent harmonium player and after him, I too trained myself and can play a few musical instruments well.” Though his career as an actor has not touched professional heights, Neil feels it’s the capability to see the positive side of life, which he inherited from his father and grandfather, which has helped him stay grounded in the race. “No matter what happens one should not stop dreaming...dreams do come true.” Speaking upon the famous association of late Mukesh and the showman late Raj Kapoor, a camaraderie, that is still fondly remembered. "Theirs was another world, something you never will see today. No wonder it is etched so well in the memories of time and movie lovers for decades together, ”smiled Neil.

I like him as an actor but he's such a whiny mess that I wonder if that isn't affecting his relationships in the film fraternity.A lot of good roles are campaigned for and he needs to stay in the game by promoting himself for good roles.

yes he is indeed a very talented actor but how can u compare him with only one film old actors like sid varun and arjun??? I think they already have talent which maybe needs to be shaped in their further movies ...neil just didn't get that one hit movie (or movies) which srk salman already had in their past i like him as an actor but as a person i still can't figure out whether he has an attitude problem or if he's actually a nice guy

@voiceswriter, please shut up

Glad of all the comments here, it's mine that affect you. Hope they give you sleepless nights too. Idiot.

I have seen most of his movies and I must say that Neil is a talented actor ( better than Imran, Varun, Arjun, Sidhart). He did good job even in his bad movies... He has no indian look maybe that's why he is not getting good offers.

Neil is a grt young actor, sad he doesn't have the best offer or top industry ppl back him up. Ranbir, Imran, Siddharth, Varun, Arjun Kapoor they all have biggies like Karan Johar, Aamir, and Salman support.

why did neil give such an interveiw ... he sounds like a faliur . in david only his part was best .. everybody had appriciated his work . he has wrong choice in movies

He's a sweet guy, but he's trying too hard to get the fame and success that Ranbir has. He was really good in David and so handsome too. I think he would be able to control success and fame, when he gets it because his family keeps him grounded.

He's a good actor.. Much better than the likes of Imran Khan.. But he needs a good film like New York again, or a hit.

he's talented.he should choose good films.
----------------------------------
He's not exactly getting offered the movies SRK, Ranbir, or Aamir are getting offered.

though it didnt work at the box office... i LOVED jail... i cried like a baby! he was so good in it ... he is like kangana ... a talent that is going unnoticed :(

Talented guy. He is a better actor than all the other youngsters.

@voiceswriter, please shut up

he's talented.he should choose good films.

David was a good film but 3G..................................

I think he is an excellent actor...definitely better than the old farts like SRK and SK that Indian public seems to love!

Feel sorry for him..hope he gets a hit with Shortcut Romeo. Watch the movie, guys! It looks decent!

The crazy photoshop work done with this photo is truly next level.

"I am carrying a huge burden, the failure of my last two movies, David and 3G. I am praying hard that my next release works at the box office.”

maybe you should get a better attitude and re-brand yourself, Neil.

Why not just stop doing films and stick to the music? He's been doing movies for a while, his acting hasn't improved and the audience still hasn't accepted him. It's time for him to hang up his boots.

He is a talented actor, good looking & has a sweetness about him. He deserves better film offers... loved him in Johnny Gaddar, New York and has huge untapped potential. I think he's better than the likes of Arjun Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and should choose better roles & cut down on the loverboy press re Asin etc.

he is damn good actor but he need to choose his project wisely.He is good looking,can act really well then he should be successful not some imran khan with no potential.

Well he can act just he should choose interesting one...but love his films thpugh:-)

wish you luck NNM

if he chooses films wisely he can be successful.How can people accept crap like 3g
