Is Neil Nitin Mukesh in the fast lane?
Looks like Neil Nitin Mukesh is turning out to be quite a tortoise, proving the popular adage, "Slow and steady wins the race". The kid who started his Bollywood innings at a slow pace, what with his first film doing well before he fell on hard times with a string of flops, is now picking up speed!
According to trade reports, Neil has bagged the best role in Abbas-Mastan's next film Players, which also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Bobby Deol in the lead.
The filmakers, who are known for making cool thrillers, are so impressed with Neil's star appeal that they've signed him up for their next three films. Quite an achievement considering the director duo are renowned for being ultra-fussy about who they work with.
Atta boy, Neil!
