Neil Nitin Mukesh’s Career As Villain Takes Off

Neil Nitin Mukesh

Even as his latest release  Dussehra tanked  loudly at the  boxoffice, Neil Nitin Mukesh is now seriously  looking at a career in  screen  villainy.

In recent years, or for that  matter  even in his entire career as a leading man, Neil has seen little luck as a leading man.

 In  2012  Neil did his  first role as a villain in Abbas-Mustan’s Players. Thereafter  it was evident that his career ahead  lay on the mean  path.He played the villain opposite  Salman  Khan in Prem Rattan Dhan Payo and Farhan Akhtar in Wazir. In 2014 his villainous  turn in  Murugadoss’ Tamil film Kaththi opened  up the South market for Neil.

In Sujeeth’s Telugu film Saaho  Neil is  cast as the main antagonist  opposite  Prabhas.  Sources say  Neil has  more footage than Shradha Kapoor, the  romantic lead in Saaho.

“Neil is the triggering point for the action in Saaho.He has  some solid action scenes  with  Prabhas and  the  bloodied climax will see them in a  mortal combat , hand-to-hand. Of course Neil is  defeated by Prabhas. But he  does  put up a great fight,” says  the source adding the film will make him the most in-demand  villain of  Telugu cinema.

For those  who came in late Neil Nitin Mukesh made  his belated  debut with Sriram  Raghavan’s  Johnny Gaddar which  was a  cult hit. Thereafter he struggled to make  his presence  felt  in a string of duds where   he  was also heard singing his own songs since he comes from an illustrious family of singers.
