After the trailer release of Shortcut Romeo, Neil Nitin Mukesh received a text from an unknown woman from Indore. The message made him uncomfortable in which the woman requested him not to glorify blackmail as he is the icon for the youth and might negatively influence the youth. She also told him about her own experience where she has cheated on her husband and now her former boyfriend is blackmailing her to leave her husband and marry him.
Source closed to Neil says, “He was very disturbed and reassured the lady that he would not do anything that would instigate the youth to do anything wrong”.
Shortcut Romeo is a remake of Susi Ganesh’s super hit Tamil film Thiruttu Payale and also features Ameesha Patel and Puja Gupta. The film is slated to release on 21st June, 2013
