Neil Nitin Mukesh and Adah Sharma in Naman Nitin Mukesh’s directorial debut – Neil Nitin Mukesh’s younger brother Naman Nitin Mukesh will soon make his directorial debut in Bollywood. With bade bhaiyya producing the film, Naman has already begun pre-production. Now, we have learnt that Neil will play the protagonist in this untitled thriller. The Johnny Gaddaar actor confirms, “Attempting to produce a thriller drama, which is popular in Hollywood, but hasn’t been really explored in India, has been quite a daunting task. Our entire casting is offbeat because we don’t want to embrace a tried-and-tested formula. There are so many stories to be told and new faces to be discovered. I’d like to use our banner as a platform to showcase raw talent.”
Adah Sharma will be seen as the female lead. She says, “I essay the role of a fashion entrepreneur. I’ve always maintained how style is innate to my persona. I’ve grown up watching films like Me Before You, so I instantly connected with my character that lends an emotional graph to the film.”
The mahurat shot will be canned at Mukesh’s 25th Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. Thereafter, it will be shot in Alibaug and Lonavla over a span of three months.
